    I would try going into your Internet Plug-Ins folders located in the Library folders and delete the Adobe plug-ins there first before trying to reinstall them. Or you can use the uninstaller that's located in the link at the bottom of this post.

    The paths for the two different Internet Plug-Ins folders are as follows
    "Your HD"/Library/Internet Plug-Ins
    "Your user account"/Library/Internet Plug-Ins

    Look for file names like: Flash Player.plugin, flashplayer.xpt

    The standalone installers are located here...
