First, download and run the Flash Uninstaller HERE to be sure any old remnants are cleaned.Restart your machine.
Open Internet Explorer. Download and install latest version of Adobe Flash Player for it from here.
From Adobe troubleshooting page HERE the message 'Failed to initialize' is attributed to some Anti-Virus software.

I understand that you are unable to update your adobe flash.
What happens when you try to install it? Do you get any errors? If so, what are they?
What happened when the uninstaller that CherylG linked to was run?
