          How did you delete it?

          To my knowledge, unless you physically delete the files from C/Windows/System32/Macromed/Flash and C/Windows/SysWOW64/Macromed/Flash, you can't "uninstall" it, because there are two registry keys and a Windows Update KB patch that prevent it.

          Because it's embedded in IE by Microsoft, it can only be updated via Windows Update.


          If you've physically removed it, you'll need to repair Internet Explorer: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318378
