Hi, I'm having a very hard time installing the newest version of Adobe Flash player.  When I run the installer I get the error message "The user does not have sufficient privileges to install Adobe Flash Player".  This all started after Flash had given me several popups about a new update, but the update wouldn't install correctly.  Eventually I uninstalled Adobe Flash and I've been unable to reinstall it at all since.

 

I'm running Windows 7 64 bit, and I do have an administrator account.  I'm trying to isntall the Flahs plugin for Firefox, but it also wont work in IE.  So far I've tried running the instaler as an administrator, doing a clean install and running the installer from another user account (also an administrator).  None of these things have worked, and I can't find any other suggestions.

 

Thanks in advance for your assistance!
