    Does your Windows user account have administrative privileges?

     

    If not, can you login to a user account that has?

    If you're consistently having to reinstall after each reboot, please try the steps listed in this FAQ:

     

    How do I fix Windows permission problems with Flash Player?

     

    If you continue to have problems, please post your installer log so we can see if something is causing Flash Player to be uninstalled.

     

    Where do I find the Flash Player installation log on Windows?

    So today is December 2012 and Flash is still uninstalling it self and as I patiently wait for an answer 5 months later, I still cant figure out the problem, I now have tried registry cleaners that do not work, I have reinstalled and uninstalled flash at least once every week since July ..

     

    Windows Vista home basic 32 bit

    Firefox 18.0

    I have Window 7 Home Edition 64bit

    Web Browser is both the IE Explorer 9 and Firefox 18

    Flash player is  Adobe Flash Player 11.5.502.146

    I install it and then after closing browser I have to keep reinstalling it as I am looking at Youtube or speedtest.

    I am running AVG I have tried the following

    Uninstalling it via a link from this site

    Running msconfig without any other applications

    Uninstalled Google Chrome

    Uninstalled any malware program and AVG

    Please Help I am installing this program 2-4 times a day.
