    ok, i keep having to install flash player it seems everytime i i get onto the internet. it works till i close it again. getting tired of it lol. is this normal, or is it a virus/bug? i'm not computer-dumb, and i keep cache cleaned (c-cleaner), and regularly run avg, spybot, and ad-aware scans. can't figure this one out though, can anyone help?

    dump IE and get Firefox. Also get adblocker plus, it will block all the ads on stratics.

    Download Hijack this, run a system scan and post it. You probably have a BHO from adobe..

    to see your BHO or browser helper objects just goto
    tools > internet options > program (tab) > manage addons
    sort the list by type and look at the BHOs

    actually your problem sounds more like a permissions problem.
    if your running vista then right click the installer file and choose "run as administrator"
