Adobe Flash Player does not load


Suddenly I am getting messages to download the Adobe Flash Player which I never had problems before on these sites before. I gather it is an upgrade. Even so, when I click on the Adobe icon, it gives me the ActiveX yellow bar and I click on to install. Gives me the install block but nothing happens.
1. Is there some site I can try to install the latest Adobe Flash Player and know that it has been installed?
2. Where does it install? I assumed it was put in the Adobe folder but no way. So where does it load so I can check to see if it installed?
Using WindowsXP with IE.

You're welcome

It is important to uninstall previous versions of Flash before updating to a later version, otherwise problems may occur.
