Adobe Flash Player

Adobe Flash will not stay installed on my system.
I have Windows 7 Ultimate - 64 bit with ie9.
Everytime I start my system, I have to install Flash PLayer.
When I shut it down, it deletes the program but the flash icon is present in control panel when I restart my system.
I have uninstalled Adobe Flash and reinstalled the lastest dwonload but it will not stay installed. When I save the program to "my documents or desk top and run the program, the icon disappears and the program installs only to delete upon shutting down.

first use the Adobe uninstaller. Do not reinstall, yet.

Uninstall Flash Player | Windows

Next, run sfc /scannow

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Let me know if it found anything.

Scan found 450+ registry problems. I guess my PC tools registry cleaner program doesn't fully clean.

Appears you system is gummed up, let's clean it up.

Download and install CCleaner. Use the registry button a few times to keep cleaning until it does'nt find any more.

CCleaner - Download.com

Download Glary Utilies.

Let me know the results.

I note you used PC Tools Registry Cleaner....

Are you in the habit of running "Registry cleaners?" (e.g., Registry Mechanic; System Mechanic; RegCure; RegClean Pro; Advanced SystemCare; AVG PC TuneUp; Norton Registry Cleaner; PCTools Optimiser; SpeedUpMyPC; CCleaner Registry Cleaner)

Generic advice -
If you do not have knowledge of the registry, then you would probably be better off leaving it alone, and definitely not placing blind trust in a program to do the job for you.

To advise anyone that a "Registry Cleaner" works, and that it will fix or speed up their machine {or all the other nonsense that is often propagated about these things} can mislead people.

Should you decide to go ahead -
Make sure you have
1.a current System Restore point created.
2.a recent "Back up" of your computer- preferably to an external HD.

Suggest you run SFC at least 3 times.
Reboot after each one completes.

Ran cleaner until no files found.
Ran utility several times, 4+, found same two reg entries:HKEY_classes_ROOT\typelib(key #)\helpdir each time utility ran. Will not delete.
Each had different reg #'s
