Secunia notified me that Adobe Flash 10e.ocx was End of Life, so I downloaded and installed 10.1 r53. Secunia still said that Adobe Flash 10e.ocx was End of Life, so I downloaded uninstall_flash_player and ran it. Secunia still gave me the error message. ( Add and remove Programs didn't list 10e.ocx ). I navigated to Windows\System 32\Macromedia\Flash and deleted the two 10e.ocx files in there then re-installed 10.1 r53. Everything works okay and Secunia is happy, so is there anything else I should do?

No - it looks like U have version 10.1.53.64 RC7 installed which is what Adobe are advising people to update to.

Hi Ted

If PSI is now showing Flash as patched and not insecure, then all is as it should be.

Normally, by running the Adobe Uninstall Flash, this should have cleared out the old .ocx files.
Prior to running uninstall all programs that use flash should be closed - browsers and PSI (right click tray icon and exit) - if that was not the case, then maybe that was why they remained.

But the second procedure that you carried out obviously did the trick.
This is recommended for those who are confident enough to carry it out. Just download and install new update, and then delete the previous/old .ocx files (as you did).

For others reading this, then re-boot and re-scan PSI to ensure changes are recognised.

EDIT: Crossed post with Maurice.
The 10e.ocx would not show up on its own in add/remove, as it is only a constituent part of the main flash app.
The release candidate version, is now full release, so this should also removed the red browser boxes from secure browsing.
