Specs: Windows 7, 2gb
I am unable to install adobe flash player on my windows 7, internet explorer 32 computer. The program downloads but is not installed and sites that use adobe do not work. I have tried all suggestion provided by adobe with no results. I believe it may be a problem in the registry.

What haopens when you try to install flash? Does it show up in programs (control panel)?

I doubt you should play with registry.

What broswer?

Do you have a firewall that blocks flash?

Go to Programs and see if you have an older version, if you do then uninstall and try again.
Are you saving the file to desktop (recommended for installers) or just trying to 'Open' and run? Try saving it, closing your browser and most other programs and then try to install.
Download Malwarebytes (free version) and run to see if maybe you have an anti-Adobe infection. (just made that term up, but you get the idea)

After removing the infection(s), were you able to reinstall it?

Before reinstalling Windows 7 (back up first if you decide to reinstall), try a system restore to a date before you had problems since this will correct problems with corrupt system files and even registry, then you may still have to reinstall Flash Player though.
