Preferred Solution: Do I need today's update-i.e. Adobe Flash KB 3074219

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Do I need today's update-i.e. Adobe Flash KB 3074219

PS from OP: i'm using Goole browser as i said and i just remembered that Google does auto-updates for Adobe Flash - so that's why i'm asking if i should also do this update for I.E. guess i'm asking is Windows update for Adobe Flash one and the same with Google's updates for the program - thanks - Edythe

Guys,

Computer booted up today and after several minutes maybe a half hour, I got a message that "Adobe Flash has an update. if you do nothing, it will be automatically installed within 45 days, or you can download it now." Nothing open, just the Desktop. Well, I closed out and did nothing, because Windows 10 normally updates Flash Player without notices.

I checked Windows Update and a new version of Adobe Flash was installed today automatically. Just giving those a heads up that you might want to close the Window if you see that message. Don't know if it could lead to malware or not. Some of you may get this message in Windows 10, so I just wanted to give you a heads up notice. I don't know if this message was legit or not. I have never had an issue like this before.

Hello,
I originally posted in the Am I infected forum here. Last Monday, 3/21 my ISP cox communications sent me an email stating that I may be infected with Alureon/TDSS. I called 3 times and did everything they suggested. I ran MalewareBytes, Norton Power Eraser, Microsoft Safety Scanner, TDSSKiller, and Roguekiller. Plus my usual real time scanning Antivirus- MCafee Security suite.
 
Today while on my local news website, another window suddenly opened and contained a fake adobe flash update. I noticed right away because I hadn't clicked anything and it even appeared to take me to a different website. The domain was aaliyamericanapparel.com. I immediately shut down the fake installer and pressed the back button which took me back to the news article I was reading.
 
I have 1 desktop and another laptop that needs checking. My desktop also has a seagate external harddrive connected to it which is holding my backed up photos. Here is the Farbar scan for the desktop.....

My nest cam windows have "Get Adobe Flash Player" right in the center. I have updated the flash player repeatedly and still the annoying reminder reappears.

Hello,
Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

So, according to Firefox's status on my addons currently installed, I had updates for the following:

Java
Shockwave for Director
Shockwave Flash

So, I went and downloaded and installed both versions of Java, updated fine. I downloaded the latest installer for "Shockwave for Director" and it installed fine, yet the addon page still thinks it needs updated.

Now, here's the problem, which has been going on for a while, which I have been unable to fix.

Whenever I get the latest installer (I have 6 copies of it now) for Flash from Adobe's website, and run it.. after allowing it access via the prompt, the process proceeds to sit in the background and do nothing. No GUI appears or anything.

I've sat and waited for it. Nothing happens, except the process eventually disappears. I really have no idea when this started to happen, as I used to updated Flash whenever it said it needed it (usually when I'd start the PC up, Adobe would pop up with its little gray window saying an update was available, so I would update it then, and all was well).

Now, however, it seems I'm unable to do so. Of course, I've run all the preliminary scans to make sure it's not malware-related, and it isn't. Something, for some reason, is just preventing the GUI from appearing.

Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this, or an alternative method of installation that may work?

Thanks!

Hello,
 
Sometimes I've been getting the Adobe Flash Update Pop-ups once in a while. I ran antivirus scans, hitmanpro, etc. I ran Farbar and I pasted the Addition.txt and FRST.txt
 
Thank You for the support
 
 
PS: This only happened 3 times this week, on Chrome and IE.
 
Before I also installed a game called Wizzard101, but during the set-up, a strange popup came granting permission to modify changes to my PC. I clicked no, then immediately uninstalled the game using Revo Uninstaller. I ran some scans with McAfee, HitmanPro, MalwareBytes etc but everything was fine.

Everytime I visit a site that uses Adobe Flash, it tells me I need to update to the latest version.. I download and re-install, and it works for awhile.. But eventually it asks me to update to the latest version again.. I keep updating to the same version, there is nothing new.. Why does it keep asking me to update, when I have the latest version?

A:Adobe Flash keeps asking to update

Try downloading, and running the latest stand alone Flash Uninstaller: |MG| Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller 10.3.183.10 Download

Then do the same with the latest Flash version:
IE - Download Flash Player 10.3.183.10 (IE) - FileHippo.com
Non IE - Download Flash Player 10.3.183.10 (Non-IE) - FileHippo.com

Then once you have done this, go to: control panel > Flash Player and in the flash settings, select "don't look for updates to flash". If you do this, you'll be responsible for checking for flash updates every so often yourself. You can do that be bookmarking this site: Adobe - Flash Player

A:Best way to Update Adobe Flash Player

Hi:

Each browser (Firefox, IE, Chrome) uses its own version of flash player.
For Chrome, it's embedded, the "PPAPI" version.
For Firefox, it's the "NPAPI" (Plug-In) version.
For IE under Win7, it's the "ActiveX" version.
The latter 2 must be installed separately.

First step will be to UNINSTALL the older versions, as they are a huge security risk.

To uninstall for eligible browsers, first download the uninstaller from this link, then CLOSE the browsers (important!), then run the uninstaller tool:

Uninstall Flash Player for Windows

For Flash Player for Firefox and similar browsers, you would need to separately download and install it from within Firefox from here:

Adobe Flash Player download

You can do the same by browsing to the same page using IE, to get the ActiveX version for IE.

OR, manual downloads of the different versions are here:

Adobe Flash Player Install for all versions

To test each browser to see if you have the current version, you would need to try this website separately for each browser:

Adobe appears to have released a Flash player update. Here's the full version download link: Download Flash player 11.2.202.233Or you can download the helper version from here: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ The difference between the two is that with the latter, you'll only be downloading a helper file which when run, will perform the update over the Internet. The full version can be installed locally offline. If you didn't disable the auto-updater which is a new feature in version 11.2.202.228, you should have received the latest version automatically already. To check, hit CTRL+SHIFT+A in Firefox to get the "Add-ons" menu and then open the "Plugins" submenu. Or in IE, go to "Tools" | "Manage Add-ons" and set the left hand dropdown menu to "Run without permission". There doesn't appear to be a Adobe security bulletin for the latest version, so you might want to postpone updating until more details emerge.

I was browsing the internet when the page I was on suddenly redirected to a page that asked me to update my AdobeFlash. It immediately popped up with a file to download. I clicked out of the file and closed the webpage. Unfortunately, I am terrified that means there is something bad on my computer. I have been hit by 3 forms of encryption viruses in the past 2 years. I'm running Avast now. Can someone help me make sure my computer is okay?

Thanks Union_Thug I do not think, you have to uninstall them first, Just download and install latest version. I prefer to download such browser plugins from FileHippo.Strangely, the Mozilla Plugins Check service (for all browsers) is showing Flash 10.1.85.3 as Up-to-date! This is wrong and misleading. I hope they update and correct it soon.

Hi everyone

With the recent Adobe Flash client update, our clients have noted that IE is significantly slower after the update. I have noticed this in more 64 bit machines then 32 bit machines.

Has anybody else noticed this?
Is there a way to fix it?

Thank you for your help.

Looks like you're not alone.

A couple of the posts come up with some useful possible solutions (uninstalling flash etc...)

Have you tried doing a clean install of flash player?

In Firefox 4.0 beta 7, under my Plugins list, it says that I have Adobe Flash Player 9.4.0.195. I tried looking for updates but it didn't detect any. So I tried manually installing the Flash Player, but that hasn't worked either.
For example, if I go to Amazon's Gold Box page, the listing doesn't show up. It's just blank. And for some advertisements, it says that Adobe Flash player has crashed.
Anything I could do to fix this?

The obvious thing to do is to uninstall both programs and then re-install them so you have the most up-to-date versions but I'm wondering if there was any other way to get the most up-to-date versions i.e. using a command.
