First, I apologise for starting a new thread. But I stupidly commented on Catwoman's thread and another one instead of the one I posted. To recap:
Secunia's scan founs issues with these and also with Air 1. I uninstalled all three via Control Panel, which I NOW know to be the wrong thing.
Maurice has worked hard to help me and wanted me to post eaxctly where Secunia found the problems. But because I deleted them, They're no longer shown as a problem.
I ran the Adobe unistall and it got rid of the ocx (I think) file.
But every time I try to download the new versions I get
******************************************
IEXPLORE.EXE - Application Error.

The instruction at "0x09c10068" referenced memory at "0x09c10068". The memory could not be "written".
'OK' to terminate
'Cancel' to debug.
******************************************

I may terminate my PC as I no longer have any hair to pull out. ;o)

But seriously what else can I do? My registry seems OK per other posts. Is the problem caused by e.g. Windows blocking pop-ups? Noron Internet Security 2009 settings? (Not for much longer 'cos without Flash I can't renew!)
Any help would be much appreciated!!!!!!
Thank you.

Short of anything else , if you search (say Google)

"IEXPLORE.EXE - Application Error."

you will see that you are not alone with the problem .

You are probably experiencing this error due to an ActiveX control on a web page that you are visiting. Essentially what the message states is that the instruction at the executing address (here its at "0x09c10068") tried to read from the same memory block that is currently executing. In basic terms it tried to read 2x at the exact same moment on the same location which cannot be done.

Did you reboot after you ran the Flash Player Uninstaller to clear out .ocx
Did you rescan after you ran the Flash Player Uninstaller
Do you need links for Uninstaller and Adobe?
bjm-

If you cannot clear out dross/remnants because you used Control Panel
Try Uninstaller and reboot and rescan
Search the Installation Path ~ C:\WINDOWS\System32\Macromed\Flash\Flash10c.ocx ~ for old .ocx
May have to disable IE Adobe ActiveX / add-ons
Try Uninstaller and reboot and rescan
May have to use application like CCleaner with caution with caution with caution to clean out remnants.

Taffy,
Found U again - I will keep a listening watch.
U will be pleased to know that Adobe have now got a full patent for their newly designed Chocolate Heat Guard for Weber BarBQ's & the Silver Ashtry for the motorbike.

Once U get sorted I urge a quick trip down town - Adobes offer is buy one get one free!!

The key issue is to get Adobe off your system.

you're all great people. Thanks.
:0)
I can't do anything until the end of the week but the greatest laugh I've got tonight is a link I've been sent to an Adobe article (on their website).
It's about this problem and the heading says it will explain everything.

But to read it, I need the latest version of Flash Player!!!!!
My sides are still sore with laughing.
Thanks & goodnight.

Oops. Just got an email that says I should instal Firefox and get the Adobe updates from there. Is this worth a try? Can I uninstal Firefox afterwards? Or should I then uninstal IE8 and, using Firefox reinstal IE7? or keep Firefox???
Decision, decisions, decisions!!!!

Taffy,
Installing yet another browser will not solve your current problem. My advice is to stick with it until we find the solution for IE8.

I only use IE8 & have Norton 2009 on this platform & IE8 & Norton 2010 Beta on my tester PC - they are & always have worked perfectly so it should not be that difficult to solve.

Not at all - any input helps.

I now understand U only qualify for the buy one get one free offer if U can prove U have all the free bloatware programmes offered by Adobe!!

Hi Maurice,

With the barrage of Adobe issues coming into the Forum. I have quoted you in several threads. I've been hoping for an opportunity to thank you for your dedication to this Forum and to make sure I was not offending you in any way. I only quote verbatim and only when I'm sure it applies.

Regards

Hi Taffy,

I would download FireFox and Read the article. For firefox you download an installer for the Flash player and it will then allow you to read the article on how to fix IE8. Both these browsers are very good and have their advantages but if you like IE better than FF then after you have IE fixed you can remove Firefox without any issues.

thanks guys. I'll try installing Firefox.I may be back again soon, smiling!

By the way, Secunia shows that both IE8 & IE7 are insecure (SA24314)

Yippee!

Thank you Maurice. I tried your Hippo link for the Adobe Flash download & it worked with no problems. I went to the Adobe site for Shockwave and in the middle of the download I got that IeExplore message again(0s and xs!)- But it didn't interfere with the download.

I'm really grateful to you guys, especially Maurice - although I do have one gripe about you, Maurice. You've told so many people about the Adobe chocolate mudguard that they've sold out and I couldn't but one. They're now working on a fog-knitting machine.

;)o

When uninstall flash or shockwave via add remove programs, you also need to uninstall their repective active x files from IE. Right click your IE icon and choose properties. On the "General Tab" which opens by default,click the settings button to the right of the delete button in the browser history section. In the "Temporary Internet Files and History Settings window, click the view objects button. Right click the control for flash and choose remove. Repeat for shockwave then re-install.

Taffy,
Thank U for the information on the fog knitting machine.

Purchased one from Adobe. I got what I paid for - a large bloated machine that appears not to work as per the instructions with no help offered by Adobe Technical Support.

No change there then!
