I have updated flash but flash10h.ocx is still there and is causing a vulnerability alert. I have gone to the folder, right clicked the file and selected delete but, after being asked to confirm my action, I am told that I need permission to delete the file. What do I do? I wondered about trying to rename it as .old.

Vista Home Premium SP2.

Thanks

Give it another try using this method & it will clear it.

To successfully install Adobe Flash go here:
http://www.filehippo.com/download_flashplayer_ie/

& then here if U have any Gecko based (Firefox etc) browsers.

http://www.filehippo.com/download_flashplayer_fire...

The latest version is:10.1.82.76

1. Download & SAVE it to desktop.
2. The installer will appear on the desk top. Before agreeing to install check these programmes are closed:
a. All Browsers.
b. PSI.
c. Windows Messenger.
d. Incredimail.
e. Adobe Free Reader.

3. The new install will then remove all old files during the update process.
4. Complete a PSI rescan & all should be in order.
5. Delete the Flash installer from the desktop.

Hello.
Have you tried rebooting and re-scanning ? I had the same problem earlier in the day. That resolved it for me. The 10h.ocx file is the most recent and should be retained, is my understanding of it.
Hope this helps.....regards,



Same here...crossed post.

Thanks all. A reboot did not work but installing the two updates did. I do not think that old versions of flash10h.ocx should be retained.

Thanks again.
