Since the new flash player releases the other day i have been having a problem updating flash player for IE.

There is a program i use called Qualys Browser Check that says this.

File checked: c:\windows\syswow64\macromed\flash\flash.ocx
Installed File Version: 12.0.0.44
Latest File Version: 12.0.0.70
Recommendation: Update to the latest secure version and remove older insecure files manually if they are not removed by the update installer.

The other browsers i use are Firefox and Chrome, which i know is built in and they are all fine, but my question is how come PSI is not detecting the old version of Flash player that needs to be removed?

I note from your other threads that you were/are using Windows 8 or Windows 8.1.

Are you referring to errors with either of these systems?

Flash Player for Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8.1 is updated through Windows Update.

KB2934802 needs to be installed

As long as the update shows as successful in your update history, you should be OK. I don't have a 64bit 8.1 system with me at the moment to check if that file version is changed by the update.

Looks like that one is updated in my history, but also when i try to verify java in IE it doesn't work like the other browsers.
