Secunia PSI notified me that Adobe GetPlus DLM v.1.6.2.48 is insecure. NOS folder present in program files. Suggested removal by 1) Add/Remove (WON'T REMOVE); and 2) Start, Run, (type in services.msc)--removal won't work. Did online chat with Adobe (USA), told to call Tech Support ---> said free programs must be done online ONLY. Firefox is my primary browser and is current (FlashPlayer v.10.1.51.95 NPAPI). IE is my secondary browser and is current (FlashPlayer has 2 versions: v.10.1.51.65 and V.10.1.51.95). QUESTIONS: How do I uninstall the older IE FlashPlayer versions, and how do I address the GetPlus DLM issue? Could the GetPlus DLM issue be caused by having the old version of FlashPlayer for IE still on my Toshiba laptop? Thanks in advance for your help!

The usual way to remove older Flash versions is to use the Adobe uninstaller from http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html . However, you are using the Flash Player 10.1 beta and I'm not sure that the uninstaller will remove this.
You might find an uninstall program in the Flash folder, or just deleting the older .ocx file should work.

I'm don't know why you can't delete DLM. Have you tried the Adobe forums?

I've done some more checking.
You should use the prerelease uninstaller to uninstall Flash Player 10.1 Beta. It is available at the following location:

http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html

Restart your computer after running the uninstaller.

This will get rid off all Flash Players on your system.

More information on Flash Player 10.1 is available here:

A similar problem concerning the ADLM has (more or less) been resolved on this thread :-
