    Appzapper is a terrific aid to removing all those bits & pieces...

    Also try Repair Permissions in Disk Utility. If still no joy run Onyx's Automation suite with ALL caches marked for removal and check box for re-linking files & apps. It's probably a cache issue and this should fix it.

    I had a similar thing and did what you did to same nil-effect. Then I checked out if the uninstaller was doing its job and it was leaving a file or two ... make sure all traces of the previous Flash install is gone, then run the newest installer.

    Sometimes if you didn't use an uninstaller the first time around it pays to re-install the offending app and then uninstall with Appzapper.

    If that doesn't work set up a second "test" account on your Mac and try installing the new app there; if it still doesn't work chances are good something else is at fault, like a problem with Safari itself.
