So I REALLY need flash player to work and it is not. As far as I can tell it just stopped working, all flash sites/videos show up as a white box. I've unistalled it about 5 times and tried re-installing it every time after I un-installed, still no luck with it actually working, even though it's listed as a program under Control Panel ---> Programs ---> Programs and Features. The Adobe flash player items that are listed under there are:
Adobe Flash Player ActiveX
Adobe Flash Player Plugin
I'm downloading from Adobe's Download Center, when I get to the page after you click install on the prompt to install the verification video is white, and the page never actually finishes loading. I'm running vista ultimate 64 bit in internet explorer. I've followed Adobes Flash Support page thouroghly and it still won't work. I can also not contact them due to me not have a registered product of theirs. If any other information, what else would you need for this to go as smoothly as possible?

here are a couple thing that came up, you may have seen them already - Hope this helps, don't know where else to go
Security level: Your Internet Explorer security level may be set to High or a custom level which does not allow viewing of ActiveX controls.
To view your Security level, from within Internet Explorer, choose Tools > Internet Options, and in the Security tab, choose Internet.
Though your browser security settings should be chosen by you or your system administrator, the 'Medium: Default Level' will allow you to view Flash content. For any Custom Level, ensure that both "Download Signed ActiveX controls" and "Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins" are not Disabled. (Enable or Prompt will work).
Download the Standalone installer for either Internet Explorer, or for Netscape-compatible browsers. This can help resolve most other download or installation issues. For best results, download the installer to your desktop, and close the browser before running the
So Now youtube tells me that I have to DL the latest version from adobe, which I did, but now it still tells me to DL the latest version even after I used your direct install and the one from adobe's site...
goal is to remove previous flash
try this, basically, remove adobe flash and components and re-install the stand alone
go to add/remove programs and uninstall adobe player active x
then use the stand alone installer you downloaded to re-install
