Here is what I have to do everytime there is a new version of FlashPlayer available and it won't work with IE8. I have to drill down to c:\windows\system32\macromed\flash\ and while online click on the latest FlashUtil10d.exe file. It downloads and install the flash player again and everthing works fine after that until the next flash upgrade. I also deleted any old flashutil exe files and uninstall activeX exe files located in that folder, as there were a few older versions. To answer questions about firefox, flashplayer had no problems working with firefox, but would not work with IE8. I run winXP home edition. Hope this helps and if it does, could someone post this answer to other forums cause when I searched for a fix on this problem I never found the proper answer. Reason I'm asking is that I'm on dialup still and it takes me forever to get from point A to B.
I found that closing Veoh from my taskbar allowed me to install flash player 10. Apparently it was using the NPSWF32.dll file that's why flash can't access/change it. Hope this helps others too.
This worked, uninstalling and then installing the software. Thanks, as I have been trying to solve this for weeks.

I found the problem for my system. It turned out the file (NPSWF32.dll) was locked by Google Talk (Labs Edition). When I closed that, the install worked fine.
Hello friends....

Simple answer for the problem is just restart your system press F8 key select safe mode and when computer start in safe mode do nothing first of all install the [ flash player] when it installed successfully restart the system in normal mode and enjoy all the sites
