Running a scan I found that Adobe Flash CS4 10.x was insecure, but when I ran the "solution" I get an error message stating "the Web Browser path obtained from the registry is potentially unsaft" etc. (C:\Program files (x86) Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
http://download.micromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/upd...

I'm running windows & pro 64 bit Service Pack 1 with silverlight 4 installed, google chrome install and my Windows update is current.

I see that there is an Adobe Flash player 10.3.181.34 but I'm cauctioned that I might need to disable my anti-virus software.

It seems to me that the simple safe way to fix my problem would be first to uninstall the old version and afterward reinstall the latest Version 10.3 but I'd like to know if there's a better way to fix this issue. Please Advise.

Adobe Flash CS4 and Adobe Flash Player are two different products. Can you post the Troubleshoot report so we know what we are dealing with?

Yes, that is Adobe Creative Suite 4. If you click on the link in your last post, you should be able to download the update with no problems. Note it is Macromedia not Micromedia. Have a look at the Secunia scan results for any additional information. Sometimes CS updates need some manual intervention.
I've a feeling that you may end up with an End-of-life report for CS4 as I'm not sure Adobe are still maintaining it.

To deal with you initial error, the instructions in FAQ 9 may correct it.

As for FlashPlayer, you can ignore the warning about turning off anti-virus on the download. They are just covering all the possibilities. The current FlashPlayer version is 10.1.181.34 but 10.1.181.26 is also secure.

Just remembered you are using Google Chrome. That has is own built in copy of FlashPlayer which it updates itself automatically. You don't need to download it from Adobe.

Try uninstalling it with a program like REVO Uninstaller, it cleans any files left behind, and then reinstall it.
