I solved this problem by downloading and using using Mozilla Firefox as an alternative web browser - flash player 10 downloaded and installed without the problems I was getting with Windows Explorer.

OKAY!! Finally, another resolution. I tried everything from here to China - and all the advice in the world would not resolve by problems - as my mom says! jk. OKAY - MY FIX - AOL!!! I downloaded AOL - went into - tried to play a video. Then when told to install flash player again - I DID!! AND BINGO - did it through AOL and now it works on my IE.. sooo.. :) and they lived happily ever after.
On some Windows Vista systems Flash Player may be installed, but will not display Flash content.

To run the installation utility to update to the latest Flash Player and correct this problem, follow these steps.

Locate the Flash folder:
C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\ or C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\
Right-click the installation utility FlashUtil10a.exe (the number and letter at the end of the name depend on the version that is installed).
Select Run As Administrator.
Close all applications.
Run the Flash Player installer.
Restart your computer.

I Hope This Helps

I downloaded the Opera browser and then ran the same programs that would not work in Internet Explorer. They all worked in Opera. The problem is not with
Vista, but with the combination of Vista and Internet Explorer 8.
