Adobe Flash Player 9 Active X is vulnerable. Recommended Fix failed multiple times. Uninstalling Flash Player 9 created unstable environment. Restored Vista (64bit) system to an earlier point (prior to version 9) and installed Flash Player 10 successfully. Flash Player 9 warning still shows up in Secunia. Tried uninstalling Secunia to reinstall it and rescan. This made environment unstable. Had to restore Vista system to an earlier point. Looking for resolution.

Hi coolmaster & welcome to the Forum

If not already please use the PSI in the Advance mode & try
this solution

When updating Adobe products the update doesn't remove
the 'old' version. Also in order to remove the old program you
must use Adobes uninstaller-in addition you must
close ALL instances of programs that may use FP as
they will be locked because they're in use. This includes
ALL browsers, IMs, the PSI & anything else that uses FP.

Also there are 2 downloads available
1 for ActiveX (IE) & 1 for NPAPI (all other browsers) if used.

I think basically your best bet would be to download the uninstaller &
uninstall all of FP & then install the latest version. After running
the uninstaller be sure to restart your comp & rescan the programs
to be sure ALL instances have been removed.

Here's the link to Adobe uninstaller:http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html?promoid...

Good luck.

Regards, wr

EDIT: The uninstaller is os (Operating System) specific & will remove ALL
instances of Flash Player-Activex & NPAPI.

been resolved.
