Your computer's security settings might be too effective and may be configured to prevent [B][URL=click here]Adobe Flash Player[/URL][/B] from running. Check your security settings and ensure that they are set to medium. This should enable the default, which allows Adobe Flash Player to run. When you adjust your security configurations by yourself, make sure that "plug-ins," "run ActiveX controls" and "download signed ActiveX controls" are set to "prompt."
That is normal - you cannot search for Flash Player - it's not a file or folder in the conventional sense, but an add-on to your browser. If it's listed in Add/Remove Programs then you have it installed (and you could remove it from there), and you can check it by clicking on this link - it will confirm the version you have running
