Can't delete previous Adobe Flash Player - Macromedia Flash Player

Running on Windows XP and IE7. I tried to update to Flash Player 9; I used the latest version of uninstall, which deleted a couple of executable files and claimed to delete flash8a.ocx on reboot; after rebooting it was still there. I tried manual deletion of the file, which said I didn't have the authority. I'm the administrator on the computer! I tried installing the Flash Player 9 and it just sits there, never installing. I've tried checking for other flash files and found a few and deleted them, but the flash8a.ocx won't delete, and renaming it doesn't allow installation ...

    Default Can't delete previous Adobe Flash Player

    Running on Windows XP and IE7.
    I tried to update to Flash Player 9; I used the latest version of uninstall,
    which deleted a couple of executable files and claimed to delete flash8a.ocx on
    reboot; after rebooting it was still there. I tried manual deletion of the
    file, which said I didn't have the authority. I'm the administrator on the
    computer! I tried installing the Flash Player 9 and it just sits there, never
    installing. I've tried checking for other flash files and found a few and
    deleted them, but the flash8a.ocx won't delete, and renaming it doesn't allow
    installation of the Flash Player 9 either. Neither does running the SubInACL
    program (which does run, showing that I have administrative priveleges).
    Anybody know how to get rid of this file?

    I'd beware of installing the latest FlashPlayer 9.0.115.0 Read about all the problems this new one is causing. DO NOT USE IT! Stick with a version 8!

    If ?Flash8a.ocx? is on your system it may prevent you from installing a later
    version. Please follow these instructions to resolve this issue.

    Please download the Microsoft Windows Installer Cleanup Utility from this
    technote:

    http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;290301

    This will install a program called ?MsiZap.exe? here C:\Program Files\Windows
    Installer Clean Up. After installation, copy the files including MsiZap.exe to
    my C:\ drive and use the following scripts in the command line.

    Select Start > Run and type in "cmd"

    Type in the following to target the "flash8a.ocx" GUID with the MsiZap

    C:\MsiZap.exe T {5E8A1B08-0FBD-4543-9646-F2C2D0D05750}

    I understand that this may be complicated, so if you want help, let us know.

    I suspect it could be very much virus related.. as such problems don't usually
    happen..
