Hello to all and thx in advance to those who can help :)

PSI indicated me that i had and EoL threat about this prog , but my problem is that the correction does'nt do anything !!! :(

so i made a little search on the forums about flash player and this specific version but nope still nothing , thought i have updated PSI to version 1.9.0.1 which makes automatic updates if i'm not wrong .


in my downloads files i have download for me the latest version of unsinstal flash player : Uninstaller 10.1 r53 (226 Ko ) that i have run before lancing the new flash player : 10.1.53.64 ( 2,44 Mo ) thought that very same versions have already been installed few weeks ago on my machine ...

i hope that u can advise me ...

the path of the file incremined is C:/Windows/system32/Macromed/Flash/ ( of course the " / "are on the other side but i dunno how to make it ^^ )

If the file is called swflash.ocx, it is the version that was shipped with Windows XP. Try the shockwave uninstaller: http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/alternates...

If that doesn't work, it's probably safe to delete it. Try renaming it first to check if there are any problems.

Just rename swflash.ocx. If there are no problems with your browsers, then delete it.

No. Do not delete anything else. That folder has the 10.1 ActiveX and NPAPI plugin for Firefox that you need.
