Need help with Macromedia Flash Player

I've had this problem for a while now. I'm running Windows XP Pro on a system that uses DSL and has a software and hardware firewall.

The problem is anytime I go to a site that uses Macromedia Flash Player I get a message that says something to the effect of "you need to install Macromedia Flash Player to view/use this site properly" I've had it installed for years but no mater how many times I uninstall and reinstall it I get the same message. I tried installing it today from a link on Microsoft Software Forum Network and got this message "Setup could not find your browser's plugins directory...You may install the plugin into a different directory but the plugin may not work properly with your browser".

Now looking around I notice that on my C drive I have a folder called Documents and Settings and one called Documents and SettingsX. I don’t see any files in"...SettingsX" folder but when I try to delete it I get a "this folder can not be deleted because it is a system folder". I don't know if the two things are related but it is suspicious.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks
