Adobe Flash Player Update Service

I am running Windows 7 (32-bit) SP1. IE9 for my browser and my problem is everytime open a new session in the browser I am asked at some point to install Adobe Flash Player all over again. It will install successfully everytime, however, it is very annoying that I must re-install this software every-single time.
Additionally, I see that in my 'Services' Adobe Flash Player Update Service is STOPPED and It will not START regardless. Manual, Automatic, Delayed........does not matter the Service will not START. Any help would be appreciated; ON MY LAST NERVE WITH THIS. Thx.
