See your message below & my response below that:
Adobe Flash Player 10.x 10.0.42.34 (ActiveX) Adobe Flash Player 10.x

This installation of Adobe Flash Player 10.x is insecure and potentially exposes your system to security threats!

The detected version installed on your system is 10.0.42.34 (ActiveX), however, the latest patched version released by the vendor, fixing one or more vulnerabilities, is 10.0.45.2 (ActiveX).

Update Instructions:
Download


Installed on Your System in:
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\Macromed\Flash\Flash10d.ocx

Congratulations, the scan that just completed of your PC did not detect any insecure programs

1. There is an inconsistency between the error report & the last line.
2. 3 times in the last 2 days I have downloaded the correct version of the patched program; installed it successfully, but OSI still reports the same results. There is a Flash10d.ocx in the area (& an e version), but I cannot delete it!

You need to run the Adobe uninstaller

and restart your computer before downloading the updated Flash Player.

Try this:
(I`m lifting my answer to an earlier, similar thread)

Quote:

The latest versions are:

Adobe Flash Player 10.x ..... 10.0.45.2 (ActiveX), for IE, and 10.0.45.2 (NPAPI) for other browsers (eg Firefox).

It may be, that even if you have the latests version, there are still parts of the old version(s) remaining. You must uninstall Flash every time before you update, using an Adobe uninstall download.

It is probably best to start again. Download and run Adobe uninstall Flash from here:

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

Re-boot and re-scan PSI to ensure nothing of flash remains.

Download and install latest version:

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

You may have to install the latest version 2x. Once using IE, and once using another browser (if you use multiple browsers).

Re-boot and re-scan PSI one more time, and hopefully this will do it.

Unquote.

You are partly correct. I had already run the uninstaller. I did not know it, but a restart eliminated the bad module.

I just followed these instructions with the same results-- all set with the Flash Player.

Do these instructions also apply to Adobe Reader? I have to update that too.

No, Adobe Reader is straightforward (usually).

The easiest way is to start Adobe Reader, click Help>Check for updates.
