I am showing that the following needs to be updated:

Adobe Flash Player 12.x (Active X) ... and showing the secure version as 13.x (Active X)
File location (doubleclick to open)Installed version
C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\Flash32_12_0_0_ 77.ocx 12.0.0.77 (ActiveX)

Below that I am showing this:

Adobe Flash Player 13.x (NPAPI)
File location (doubleclick to open)Installed version
C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\NPSWF32_13_0_0_ 182.dll 13.0.0.182 (NPAPI)

I don't know what I am supposed to do. I notice the difference that one is Active X and the other is NPAPI, but I still don't know what to do.

Navigate back to C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\Flash32_12_0_0_ 77.ocx

RIGHT click on it & select delete.

EDIT

The ActiveX files in that folder should look like this:

Do you mean to delete only the one file? Flash32_12_0_0_ 77.ocx

I have quite a few more files in that Flash folder than what you show in that link. Is there any way I can attach a screenshot to this forum?

Pardon me for butting in. I could be wrong, but I'll take that chance.

I read the OP differently. Seems to me the problem is that the NPAPI version of Flash HAS been updated to version 13, BUT the ActiveX version is STILL at version 12.

If my interpretation is correct, then the solution is to go to the Adobe website and download JUST the version 13 ActiveX installer, and then run that.

This is a good place to get it:
<https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distrib...>
because the installers there do NOT have the cruft that accompany the ones on the "Get Flash" download pages.

HTH...

I'm sorry Maurice, but I don't understand your answer.

Steffens: I downloaded the file from the link you provided and am going to run it. I figure it can't hurt anything. Thank you.
