Flash Player upgrade required


Totally unexpectedly, out of nowhere I cannot watch a video on YouTube. I was able to do so yesterday but today I was prompted that I need to install flash player. When I first installed Fedora 14, I ran FedoraPlus so that I was able to listen to music and watch video. I have no idea how this happened but all of a sudden, I'm being prompted: 'Flash Player upgrade required'. I've downloaded the folder and now have no idea what to do next:

Archive Manager just opens a folder with a an array of files.

Having become accustomed to Windows where things are more automatic, I'm afraid I'm lost when things like this happen in Fedora so I would really appreciate if someone could walk me through how to get the update installed and hopefully it would be instructive for similar situations in the future.

Thanks to anyone who is willing to help.
