then wants to install over and repeatedly.
I don't understand this; how does this manifest itself?
The win 7 pc says it has an update and when the update is installed it completes without issues but then a few minutes afterward it has the same update to Adobe Flash that it wants to install again.
That seems really bizarre. We push our content out to thousands of globally-distributed servers (a content distribution network, or CDN), and some network magic routes you to the closest/fastest server to you.
Sometimes a file won't get updated on a particular node, and my guess is that you're getting an old installer, but a current version.xml file (which is just a file with the current version number, which Flash uses to determine if you need an update).
If you open Control Panel > Flash Player > Advanced, what is the version number that's displayed?
Please provide the following:

The install log files will be fairly large, please use the instructions here, The specified item was not found., to share them.
Thank you so much for your responses, someone pm me directly and suggested I remove the program again and remove the registry settings and delete any trace of the program, there was a corrupted file causing issues and all of this was resolved after a reboot and re-installation. Thank you so much.
