Macromedia Flash Player 7.X End of Life

I then followed all the correct steps and uninstalled it from the Adobe site.
When I tried in down the new version I again followed all the correct steps but it would not down load.

What am I doing wrong?

As far as I know I have done it all correctly.

Where do I go now and how do I download the latest version?

I am running W7 64bit if that is any help.

Keith

As they say "Been there done that"

Installing is not a problem.

Its the "download" that is the problem.

This is my procedure.
1 Uninstall
2 Restart Computer
3 Download as Administrator
4 Restart. Computer
5 Go to Secunia and I still get told the same message.

I have tried working from the Adobe Site plus the one you recommended.

I also turned my security off.

I downloaded to the desk top each time

I have a funny feeling this has happened previously and I am missing some thing some where.

If any one who is helping me I would appreciate a link rather than say do this then that.
I am not a computer whiz but I can follow instructions very easily if they are correctly laid out.

I would like to say in advance thank you to any one who can help.

Keith

Keith,
Where has PSI found this programme?

FINDING A VULNERABILITY FILE PATH
=================================

To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, use or switch to the ADVANCED interface, then :

1 Click on the + sign of the programme to "expand' it.
2 Click on Technical Details in the Toolbox to see the installation path of the detected file. (Copy (CTRL+C) & paste (CTRL+V) the Installation Path of the file back to the Forum if U are unsure what to do next.

Update 2 15:17 21/07/2010

Edit: I assume U are not using PSI version 2 where the procedure is slightly different.

Which browser are you downloading for ?
What version of psi are you using ?
What exactly is the message you are getting from Secunia ?
Are you aware that Flash is an integral component in Chrome ?
Have you tried removing via Revouninstaller which checks for any left-over files ?

Hello Maurice

I put it all in for you.

Just to make sure its here
I am using W7 and IE

Technical details about this installation of Macromedia Flash Player 7.x, you can use this information to determine why the Secunia PSI detected the program and the security state of it.

Version Detected:
7.0.61.0 (NPAPI)

Installation Path:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Elements Organizer 8.0\Browser\plugins\NPSWF32.dll

Last Inspection of Program:
2nd Sep. 2010, 7:51 CET


I also ran that Hippo program and it did not find that required updating at all

This detection is from Adobe Elements not the standalone Flash Player. Downloading Flash Player from Adobe or Filehippo will have no effect.

Keith,
It is a Gecko based (Firefox/Google) embedded plug in.

If U do not use this type of browser or U do not want that functionally it offers just navigate to the file (U will see 2 files in the browser plug in folder) - just right click & delete them. LOOKS LIKE U DO NOT WANT IT IF AN IE USER.

Phyically fixed this very problem last night for someone. Works like a dream.

It is Adobe's responsibility to update the embedded file. Not much chance of that.

U can always update the file if U want it. Just move the latest version from the player into the browser folder.

EDIT:
Keith, If U have purchased the Premiere Addition there are two programmes that will have these files.

First delete from Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 by navigating as decribed above.
Second - open Adobe Premeire Elements 8 - U will find the same two files in the same location as Photoshop. Remove them as well.

PSI picked up a copy of Flash 7 still lurking in my photoshop elements 3 folder. I renamed NPSWF32.dll as NPSWF32.old and copy/pasted the current version from system32 folder to the photoshop folder. No ill effects, in fact photoshop now loads significantly faster.

Hello Maurice

I have been had PSE8 for several months now and nothing has been mentioned previously sounds rather strange.

I only use IE as my browser I use Google search but never as a browser.

I will delete it no problem BUT how do I go about it please.

Remember I am only 72 years young and not a Computer Whiz

Thanking you in advance

Keith

Hello Maurice again

I did of research in the Adobe site and it would drive a Technician crazy some of their recommendations even state that it could cause problems.

I finished up going into Secunia PSI and ignored that message.

I then ran Secunia and no message at all.

Should this solve my problem?

I know I am only hiding it and it has not gone away.

Hi,

Since this is an embedded version of Flash, there is nothing you as an end-user can do to patch it. Since this responsibility lies with Adobe, I have ensured this program should not be detected (in this particular location) if you run a full rescan.

hope this helps.

Navigate to here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Elements Organizer 8.0\Browser\plugins\NPSWF32.dll

U can do this by using the OPEN Folder option in PSI or do this:

Right click on Start>Select Open Windows Explorer>click on the C drive>click Programs (x86)>Adobe>Elements Organiser>Browser>Plugins

In that folder U will see 2 files one of which is NPSWF32.dll

right click on both & select delete.

Do a full rescan & all will be in order.

I agree. This is a new "find" by PSI. I have now phyically fixed two Pc's with the same issue using the method described.

Hello Maurice

Thank you again.
I was able to follow all those steps very easily.
As I have said many times I can follow steps as long as they are set out correctly.
Maybe its the old tradie still in me.
I did the scan and every thing was back to 100%.

Keith,
Good news.

If all your problems are now resolved could U please lock (Accept) the thread. This will prevent us both from receiving update emails from "tag on" posts.

Have a nice weekend.
