Flash Player Update not responding


Jul 1, 2011
Hello, I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit that has been acting a little funny lately, and I had a concern about an update to Adobe Flash Player that I was prompted to install upon booting up.... :??:
I click Okay in the grey box, it finished downloading, begins installing, and then immediately goes to Not Responding with the little Windows blue circle that means it is trying to do something, but failing. :pfff:
I was hoping for some advice on this matter as the update has already been downloaded, and finished installing, but then failed on a third stage that I do not recognize, or just never finished the install.
I know that Flash Player is mainly a browser plugin that is dicey at best in performance, but I at least want to be sure it is up-to-date, so advice is sought on how to proceed here.
How can I be sure if it actually completed the update please??
Oh yeah, and THANKS IN ADVANCE!! :love:
