I spent many days and hours trying to find the fix. I finally was able to clear Adobe in Secunia. Follow the directions here. It worked for me. I now have 100% score.

Hey,
just search this forum for flash-related threads, and you'll find the solution you're looking for. This is very much so an FAQ.

@TerryK
The solutions to all Adobe problems are all over the Forum. I have copied my Flash solution for U.

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


1. Download & use the flash Uninstaller from here:

#####Before actually running the uninstaller it is a good idea to close all browsers,PSI and any other programme U think may be using Flash #####

http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html

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 PSI 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/

4A.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.

I may add some further light to the reason for all this.
According to the install log from Adobe it tries to delete all old versions of flash up to 10a, then installs 10c. Therefore if you had 10b it will leave that ocx.

Why Adobe chose to leave it may be a mistake or for some backward compatibility reason. I deleted the 10b ocx manually (only possible if you exit IE, messenger and other MS stuff first). Then I got 100% again.

I tried all of the solutions I could find in the forums, and this is the one that worked for me. Different things work for different operating systems and computers. If the one that worked for me doesn't work for you, keep trying others you find in the forums.

If U want to find it manually go to:

Right click on Start>Explore>WINDOWS>System32>MACROMED>Flash

When U open Flash there should be 1 OCX file named Flash10c.ocx.

Right click & delete any other OCX files

Thanks for the data Maurice! I really do appreciate your help.

I did a seach for ocx files on both the C drive and on my restore drive D and only found the one flash10c.ocx. I am still getting the error on PSI. Any other suggestions?

To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, use or switch to the ADVANCED interface, then :

1 Click on the + sign of the programme to “expand’ it.
2 Click on Technical Details in the Toolbox to see the installation path of the detected file. (Copy (CTRL+C) & paste (CTRL+V) the Installation Path of the file back to the Forum if U are unsure what to do next).

Hello,

Will this only work to remove from the C drive as it says here.

Or will it remove all Flash from any drive?

My flash is install on another drive not my C drive.
