Check for infections. You are the ADMIN, correct ?

I'm working on a PC with the exact same error. The user is an Admin (they are the only user). The machine did have infections but have all been removed. Any solutions yet?

Youtube have entered some users in their HTML5 trial. You can right click on the video picture box and open the tag that say ÔÇťAbout HTML5, halfway down the page you can find this link.
Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 (h.264,Available here, WebM support available here)
Install Googles WEBM, and your videos should play.

This won't fix the root cause of the problem but it's a quick work around that normally works for me.

- Create a new user account with administrative privileges.
- Log into the new account and install flash, it installs for all users.
- Log out of the new account
- Log back into your original account
- Enjoy using flash ;) 

- OPTIONAL/RECOMMENDED: Delete the new account that was created

It's a quick fix. Long term you need to remove any infections and fix a few registry problems to get back all your rights.
