Note that there are two installs of Adobe Flash Player.  One is for Internet Explorer ( which is the one that Avast requires ) and the other is the plug-in for Firefox, Opera and such.

What he said - plus

It is due to chrome requiring the nonIE flash player.  If you do not have FF or Chrome installed then safe zone flash will not work

I found this during the first safezone beta, and it was only after I installed the nonIE version that flash worked for me  ;D

How does windows do its updates? I think it is installed but you havent configured it as your default browser.

Flash for Internet Explorer will install fine.  You can download the install using Firefox.  Just select the different version.
