Flash player installed under admin user, not working under user with admin rights

I have installed Flash player 9 while logged in as the administrator user. However, when I login under a user who has administrative priviliges, flash player shows as not being installed. please help!
 
 
 

1. User with desktop admin rights but not server admin rights

2. Non-admin user can't use programs installed by Admin user

I just reformatted my Win 2K machine and installed XP. It is networked to
one other Win 98 machine.
XP Help is adamant that the day-to-day user(s) should not be an
Administrator, stating that this would seriously imperil internet security.
So I set up one administrative and one non-administrative ("limited") user.
But I seem to have missed a trick big time.
(1) This is inconvenient. If I log on as the limited user and download a
program, I have to log off and on again as administrator in order to install
it, and then put shortcuts manually into the limited user's menus. Is this
what is intended?
(2) Much worse, the limited user can't install programs, but programs
installed by the administrative user don't work for the limited user. For
example, my Plextor CD writer works fine under the admin user, but under the
non-admin user, its diagnostics report "Registry keys not found" and it
hangs up. I need it to work under BOTH users.
(3) Some fonts are available to the admin user but not to the limited.
Also, in the Control Panel there are 2 references to user managment. User
Accounts has the simple stuff and System Administration has the stuff you
pass an exam in. I cannot locate where these link! If I had several users on
the machine, where would I go to allocate them into groups and make some to
be Power Users, for example?
I guess this stuff is basic but it is holding me up! Any suggestions
gratefully received.
