This post by Maurice Joyce on Aug. 7 gives directions on how to update Flash Player so that the process is very easy to accomplish.

To remove all versions of Flash from the C drive of your PC:


1. Download & use the flash Uninstaller from here:

http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?ext...

2. Reboot to clear out any left over ocx files.

3. Rescan using PSI - if there are any insecure Flash elements left what is the path to them? U should not proceed to stage 4 until all U clear any problems found.(The overview page may look a little odd because it uses Flash for the pictorials)

Note: At this stage,if PSI finds any elements of Flash in the C:\i386 folder or on any drive other than C that is an OEM reinstallation partition (normally D drive) or a drive U use solely to backup your work U can safely create an ignore rule.


4. Reinstall the latest Internet Explorer Flash Player from here:

http://www.filehippo.com/download_flashplayer_ie/

3A.If U are also using Firefox, Opera and other Gecko-based browsers U need this link as well:

http://www.filehippo.com/download_flashplayer_fire...

5. Go to add/remove & double check Adobe have not installed the useless Adobe Download Manager - if U see an entry remove it.


Good luck & regards, wr

EDIT: This is correct for Flash uninstaller-sorry.

Adobe Air comes bundled with Adobe Reader. Do U use it or know what it does?

If not remove it via Add/Remove & Adobe.com at the same time.

but I use it only as a reader. Is it possible to install a different version, perhaps one which came before and which hasn't this plugin, because if I have understood it well abobe reader can work properly with or without this plugin.

That is what I have been trying to tell U.

Adobe Reader is a PDF Reader. U do not need Adobe Air or Adobe.com To use Adobe Reader.

If U do not use or know what Adobe Air or Adobe.com does just remove them.

U can even remove Adobe Reader. Many would argue that Foxit Reader is faster & is certainly much smaller in download size.
