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

my other programs ("Software Informer" and "SUMO" telling me all is o.k.

Wgat is wrong?

I have copied this from another post I did on the same problem.

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.

This is an embedded Flash Player within Photoshop Elements. The normal methods of maintaining the Flash Player browser plugins will not work for this.
Check if there are any updates for Photoshop Elements available from Adobe (unlikely). If you do not require this function, you can rename this file. Alternatively, you could try replacing it with the Firefox plugin in the C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash folder.

Thank you. It's working with the last option.

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.
