Clear your browsing cache.
Go to Tools > Internet Options. On the General tab click the Delete button.
Download the offline installer from Adobe http://www.macromedia.com/go/full_flashplayer_win_ie
Close IE and run the installer.
When it has installed reopen IE.

Go to Tools > Manage Add-ons > Enable or Disable Add-ons.
Is 'Shockwave Flash Object' in the Enabled list.

Navugate to this location:
Inside that folder look for a file ending in ....FlashUtil.exe (or similar)
Click on that file and it should update your flash and fix any missing files.
Restart your computer when done.

When you say Flash refuses to download, what error are you getting.
Could you copy and paste the link to a specific site that you visit that requires Flash.

Go to this page http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
it will tell you what (if any) version you have installed.
If it says no version is installed it should give you the option to install it.

what if you download ccleaner and run the registry scan on it and do a system cleaner.
