I suggest that youn do a clean install using the 64-bit uninstaller and installer from the links in http://forums.adobe.com/thread/909550
If your problem persists, can you tell us something more about that 'macromedia.com' file - size, and what it contains (open it with Notepad)?
So the uninstall and fresh install did not do anything to improve the situation.
And i just noticed that I misspoke about the macromedia.com file - it is not a file but a folder that contains other folders in the following manner C:\Users\Owner\Appdata\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\macromedia.com\support\flashpayer\sys
The bold folder is the one I delete. This folder in total is quite small 8 kb. In the last sys folder there are two more folders one called #s.nsdsvc.com and #s.ytimg.com and a file call settings.sol
So, I am going to do some more testing with this and give even more specifics very soon.
After poking around a bit....when I delete this setting.sol file everything starts working as it should. This file appearantly is my "work/no work switch". I was just deleting more than I need to with the macromedia.com folder zap. The same problem of flash not working still persists but I have it narrowed down to this settings.sol file. Is there something in my flash settings that can be flipped on or off to make this problem go away? I feel that I am close to a solution...maybe.
Here is the information found in that file settings.sol (copied from notepad so it is a little garbled with tabs):
¿ ßTCSO settings gain @I echosuppression defaultmicrophone defaultcamera defaultklimit @Y defaultalways windowlessDisable autoUpdateDisabled autoUpdateDefaultUpdated autoUpdateInterval @ autoUpdateLastCheck BsJÄÀ‡ crossdomainAllow crossdomainAlways secureCrossDomainCacheSize ¿ð allowThirdPartyLSOAccess trustedPaths safefullscreen disallowP2PUplink domains s.ytimg.com
Truly greek to me.

That is the file where the Flash Player settings are kept.
Can you try to change some of the settings from
http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager03.htm l - check all 8 tabs for things that may apply.
