A client was trying to update Adobe Flash to 11.4 (down with Adobe and their rage-inducing update policy), but she got a pop-up windows in the final phase of the update:
Internet Explorer Script Error
An error has occurred in the script on this page.
Error: Object expected

On this question in the Adobe help there is a download link for Flash Player for ActiveX. I ran that and it updated fine.
Please comment if this did or didn’t help.
