Adobe Flash uninstall tool,& is there a better/safer flash player w/o the hassles?

Q: Adobe Flash uninstall tool,& is there a better/safer flash player w/o the hassles?

I uninstalled Adobe Flash with their uninstall tool because I read somewhere you needed to update it because of major security flaw. I went over to the Adobe website to try and find an update, as well as a tutorial on how to update, as I had no idea what version I had. Their website is a mess unless you want to purchase something, and then you can find whatever your want. Since I had no idea what version of player, I just DL their uninstall tool, then DLed their new flash. I used their uninstall tool, and then reinstalled the new Adobe Flash Player. The only PU that came up was that it couldn't install in Opera. I went looking to try and configure it, then I read in the post below, you had to go to the link, http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/ for shockwave, and figured it would lead me to flash and all that crap. I remembered what a PIA it was. I went over there, and it says flash works, but I still don't know if it's the latest flash or not. On the right it says I need to install "other sw", but that probably because I don't have shockwave installed. BTW, when I used their uninstaller from an administrator account, it completely wiped out my FX profile in the limited user account for some reason. It didn't do anything to the FX profiles in the administrator's accounts. I keep an updated copy of the limited user account's FX profile, and just reinstalled it, but I'm sick and tired of adobe flash and all the BS your have to go on the 'net to configure it or even find it. Any freeware flash players out there that are just as good (and safe) and you don't have go thru all this 'net BS to configure? Also, where do find the files for that Adobe flash player, when you're using FX as your browser, and where should it be located in FX....and does it even work with FX? I guess it's in ActiveX in IE, but I don't know, and I'm not using IE and have access to IE closed, or partially closed is a better term. I checked program files and common program files, the FX local profiles, the FX folder under program files, application data under Docs/settings, but I can't find it. Weirdest freakin' user unfriendly SW that I've ever seen. ​ Never mind, I finally found that *&^$$%&&(*() security panel. This software seems like a huge security risk as you don't and can't tell w/o connecting to Adobe and that Adobe flash security panel if it's actually setup secure. I just absolutely hate it, so if anyone has some suggestions on a better flash player that you can control locally, I'll uninstall it completely, or if there's any way to just make sure locally that it's off and it's settings can't be changed until you need to use it. Will NoScript lock it down for security, if you check "forbid Adobe Flash" ? I did have that checked when I went over to the Adobe website, and I couldn't read the flash window until I allowed the blocked 'script. in the upper left, but I'm still uneasy about software that your can't control it's settings locally w/o connecting to/thru some website on the 'net.

Preferred Solution: Adobe Flash uninstall tool,& is there a better/safer flash player w/o the hassles?

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: Adobe Flash uninstall tool,& is there a better/safer flash player w/o the hassles?

The flash player for IE and Firefox is in C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash. The IE one is called Flash9f.ocx and for Firefox its NPSWF32.dll.

You can view current version, by going to a page with a flash object on the web page, right click on the Flash object and select About Adobe Flash Player 9 and it will take you to Adobe site and display version.
You can also get version from the files about on the Version or Details tab of its properties.

As for removal, just either use the Uninstall tool in the same folder (See above) or delete all the files in the folder to remove it.

We have IE 6. Say a user goes to MSN.com. The ad on the right is a Flash object. Some of our users will see that object flickering when scrolling up or down on the page or when hovering their mouse over it. It's quite annoying. Almost all users are running Adobe Flash Player 9, but I think I've seen this happen on systems with Macromedia Flash Player 8 as well. Other systems don't have the problem. I've seen this happen on one system and not another while both seemed to have the same Flash objects installed.

Uninstalling all Flash players using Adobe's prescribed Flash Player uninstall tool seems to work at first, but users later complain again. Note that they just about always end up installing Flash Player 9 again, because sites ask for it. I don't believe I've seen this on any XP systems at all, including my own, but most of our users have Win2K.

Does anybody know why this happens or how to permanently fix it?


A:Ie 6 - Flash Objects Flickering - Using Adobe Flash Player 9 Activex R28 (shockwave Flash Object V.

More info: Adobe Flash Player 9, Macromedia Flash Player 8, and Macromedia Flash Player 10 all produce the same result--Flash objects that flicker when you put your mouse over any part of them. Moving Flash objects will flicker constantly while moving and stop flickering when the animation is done. SWF files (at least the one at www.stormwerks.com/linked/stuf/AYB2.swf) work without a problem when using Adobe Flash Player 9.

If I don't have Adobe Flash Player 9 installed, the Win2K machines prompt me to install them for almost any site that uses Flash (I guess most recent Flash objects cannot be viewed with the older Macromedia Flash Players).

Any suggestions?

A:Adobe Flash Player won't Uninstall

Hello TheWiz,

The Adobe Flash Player uninstaller may be able to help you get it uninstalled. I would recommend that you close IE after downloading it before you run it to avoid any possible "In Use" issues while trying to uninstall it.

A:Solved: Uninstall Adobe Flash Player

Read other 7 answers

[Ok, let me try typing this all over again. Another, separate problem: this POS Vista laptop's wireless keeps arbitrarily disconnecting. 'Back to Cat 5 cable, dammit. Anyway...]

There's a persistent problem I've been unable to solve after roughly a year since it first appeared. When I check Secunia PSI's reports I'm finding old versions of Adobe Flash Player listed as "Insecure" and "Update scheduled" - which will not uninstall with Adobe's own uninstall tool.

I went through a closed thread here at Techguy.org on the subject and went through the procedure described - basically downloading and running the Adobe Flash Uninstaller found here:

After rebooting into Safe Mode and running the Flash uninstall tool (multiple times, just out of anal-retentive thoroughness,) I rebooted into standard mode. On opening Secunia PSI - but before running a scan - the list of insecure programs shows Adobe Flash Player 9.x, which hadn't even been there previously. After running the Flash Uninstaller again from standard mode, then running a new PSI scan, the 9.x version is no longer there but in its place is... 10.x (NPAPI), which when I click PSI's Scan Results detail page lists it as (NPAPI).

This occurs regardless of whether or not I've got the current version of Adobe Flash installed on top of it all.

Are you by chance using a browser that has Flash built in? Such a Google Chrome? Are you using other browsers that may have a separate Flash plug-in? If you go and install/update Flash from the Adobe site does it then report only the new version?

It will list the site asking for permission to store information on my computer. The link I have attached below gives instructions on how to remove this pop-up.

Can someone let me know whether cleanup is needed? Remove them all and start over? If I have three versions, why do I not see three versions when I look in Revo Uninstaller or in Program files?

Aleady downloaded and installed Adobe Flash Player 11.4.402.265 a few days ago, as directed from the announcement window upon computer startup, to the adobe page link, to the download of this new version of Flash Player. The install a few days ago (downloaded first) was successful. YouTube videos work (although this was checked in other browsers, not in I.E.). This morning, another update announcement window appeared for Flash Player. I was expecting the button to give me the typical installer interface to automatically download then install Flash Player, but NO. Instead, the announcment window button gave me the web page to permit me to choose to download what I ALREADY have - version 11.4.402.265. I already have that version. Where then is the update? I would expect to see the two gray windows involving an update for v11.4, hopefully to give me some update higher than ...265, and not see another web page through my default browser.

I checked the adobe site to try feedback to report this but I had to face a mess of a website to move through (Adobe....) if I want that.

Anyone know if I may have some unknown fault on my system, or if this webpage is the right kind of way to get the update which I already have? Makes no sense to update version 11.4.402.265 with 11.4.402.265. Cannot tell adobe, cannot complain to adobe unless stuggle through their complicated website.

Go into the Control Panel and open the Flash Player Console. Update from there, but before you do, put a check to allow in FF. If flash doesn't work in IE after that download or open (if you already have) FF and see if it works there. Even if it does, we still can work on the IE problem separately.

Hello everyone, I am new to this site, a friend at work said you all saved her computers life, so I am hoping you can save mine as well. Several weeks ago I got a virus on my desktop home computer, a friend from work cleaned up my computer, removed the virus, I thought all was well. Since then I cannot listen to any music, actually have no sound at all, cannot upload/download any of my pictures and cannot play any games. When I do try any of the above I get the message, you must upload Adobe Flash Player. I went to control panel, it is already installed. I uninstalled it, tried to reinstall it, but am getting the same message, I am at my wits end, what else can I do?

A:adobe flash player

Use the Flash uninstall tool at this link and then reinstall a fresh copy. Using Add/Remove programs for Flash doesn't work.

Recently I have been unable to play online flash games and watch youtube videos on IE7. I know it isnt javascript, and adobe has installed correctly as looking at my friends meegos on msn does work. I have also tried using subinacl when installing and switched to firefox, and both solutions did not work. Ive also tried deleting the "safeversions" folder from the registry, and as you can see im getting rather desperate.

There has to be a solution out there.

Im using a Sony Vaio VGN-C25T, Windows Vista Home Prem. and I know it is capable of running youtube as it has in the past. Anti virus software is AntiVir and I dont think that is related as the settings have not changed prior to this problem

Some help will be very appreciated,

Go here http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=tn_14157

and download the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller, run it and uninstall it. Then download again and reinstall it. Worked for me on several vista machines and one XP. I am not sure why I thought it was a vista thing but the first time installed it won't work and the only way to install it again is to use the adobe uninstaller first

Curious....Flash Player 10.2 keeps popping up periodically (every few days) and says it needs to download/install an update. When I agree, the update is always version 10.2. It appears to download/install and everything seems fine, then a day or two or three passes and it does it all over again. This happens on more than one of my machines.

I'm computer illiterate and i need some help getting adobe flash player working on my computer. Here is the situation. I will go to a site ex.youtube.com that uses flash for videos and then i go to watch a video it says i need to download flash then i do. Then no box pops up to say if i want to download it or anything and there is just the animation saying the instalation is complete. Then below that sometimes there is a message saying Important Message: You may need to click the gold bar at the top of the browser window to allow the install. But there is no gold bar. Other times it just does not say that and it says it worked. Then when i go to do anything on a website ex. youtube it still does not work. The thing that really bugs me as it was working just last week. what am i doing wrong? what can i do to get it running?any help will be greatly appreciated.

Every time I try to do homework on connectmath.com, just one specific problem, a pop comes up saying "A script in this movie is causing Adobe Flash Player to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer may become unresponsive. Do you want to abort the script?" And there's an option that says "OK" and a "Cancel" option. No matter which I choose, it pops right back up. Help!
