Secunia is showing that my Adobe Flash Player 11.x is updated. When I go to view a video, I get a message saying that I need to update my Adobe Flash Player. Do I want to do that? It appears to be Adobe Flash Player 11.9.

Thanks for your help.
Kathy

After you run a full PSI scan what version is showing? Does PSI indicate it is up to date?

Hi ,

I would like to add that it is very important to be careful and if in any doubt whatsoever , DO NOT download Flash from a third party site even if it seems to offers the latest version ; such sites could bundle third party software with their installer with all that might entail .

The least hassle method of updating Flash is to get the installer from the Adobe website :-

http://www.adobe.com/downloads.html

PLEASE NOTE even this official site will probably offer you third party software but at least you will see that :ie: look carefully ,and have the opportunity to refuse the offer .

Hope that helps

Anthony

Kathy,
I noted you tagged onto another thread. Is your problem now fixed?

EDIT - If it is not fixed do this:

UPDATING THE STANDALONE ADOBE FLASH PLAYER

THIS METHOD SHOULD NOT BE USED IF USING WINDOWS 8/8.1 IE10 or IE 11 - THE UPDATES ARE MANAGED BY MICROSOFT VIA WINDOWS UPDATE

1. Download & SAVE these to desktop.

IE & Other Browsers using ActiveX.

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

& then here, if you have any other type of browser that does not have Flash embedded.

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/

Untick (uncheck) any additional offerings bundled with the download if they are not required

2. The installer will appear on the desk top. THE IMPORTANT BIT - Before agreeing to install Flash check these programmes are completely shut down (use the Task Manager if necessary (CTRL+SHIFT+ESC) to COMPLETELY EXIT these processes if running)):
a. All Browsers.
b. Windows Messenger.
c. Incredimail.
d. All Adobe Products.
e. PSI - Unless using version 2 or version 3
f. Microsoft Skype & Plus! For Skype
g. Microsoft Money

3. The new install will then remove all old files during the update process.

4. Complete a full PSI rescan & all should be in order.


Optional - Go to Start>Control Panel>click the Flash Player (32 Bit) icon>check the settings are to your requirements.

I do have IE 11.

Sorry, but when I go to Control Panel, I find the Flash Player under Uninstall Programs and I'm not getting specific information for the program. When I do Start and All Programs, I DO NOT find Adobe Flash Player.

IE 11 on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1?

You can check which version is installed here:

http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html

After you click the Check Now button what version does it say you have?

See this for the detail required.
