Do the following:

Download SubInACL by going to:

Once you have this installed create a file named “reset.cmd” You can use notepad to create this file, but make sure its not a text file.

In the file add the following:

cd “C:Program FilesWindows Resource KitsTools”
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=system=f
subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=system=f

Execute reset.cmd and let this run; this should allow you to install adobe flash. You might notice some errors but ignore them as they do not really matter.
