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?

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.

[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.

After doing quite a bit of reading today,I decided that the Adobe PDF viewer is a resource hog. I uninstalled any traces of it I could find in my add/remove programs part of my pc. Just a few minutes ago while reading another post here at BC, I discovered I had to install Adobe Flash player to view an article thru YouTube.
My question is how does flash differ from the pdf viewer? They're both an Adobe thing,right?

I updated Flash Player per instuctions by uninstalling old, rebooting, installing new, rebooting. Adobe web site verifys it is insatlled on my PC. When I try to play a video sometimes it starts, sometimes not. Some times I can get the video to play by refreshing the screen several times. Most times the video plays for about 3 secs then hangs up. XP Home, IE 8, Adobe Flash 10.1.
I have read some forums that say IE 8 and Flash 10.1 not compatiblew. I tried going back to older version of Flash still no good.
I have another PC with the same setup and Flash works okay.
What am I missing?

A:Adobe Flash player 10.1

Well...I don't see logically...how you singled out Flash as the problem.

As for compatibility between IE8 and Flash 10.1...I've had both installed for some time, with no indication of "incompatibility". The fact that you have a PC that works with same setup...well, it reflects badly on any credibility of the incompatibility theory, IMO.

I'd take a look in Event Viewer for errors...and I'd ensure that I had all XP critical updates installed.

The Adobe site states:

Adobe Flash Player is not supported for playback in a 64-bit browser. However, you can run Flash Player in a 32-bit browser running on a 64-bit operating system.

Adobe is working on Flash Player support for 64-bit platforms as part of our ongoing commitment to the cross-platform compatibility of Flash Player. We expect to provide native support for 64-bit platforms in an upcoming release of Flash Player following Flash Player 10.

Do any of you have a link of how to install the version of Adobe that I can get on my computer? If I do this, I can easily upgrade when the right verion comes out for my system, right?

Any info will be appreciated!

Hi -

Adobe really missed the boat on this one.

The work around for this is to run IE7 x86 - not the x64 version.

Click on start | type internet - select the "Internet Explorer" that has no wording after it. This is IE7 x86 (32-bit). See if this resolves your problem.

IE7 x86 will run everything you need under x64.

I might be wrong...but...

Loading...is not the same thing as installing.

As part of system security, I get messages anytime a website has code which suggests Flash, with the option of allowing it to run or not run. On some pages, it doesn't make a difference, on some...the links won't work unless Flash is enabled.

Ditto for ActiveX.

FWIW, quote from Wiki:

"Symantec's Internet Security Threat Report[62] states that a remote code execution in Adobe Reader and Flash Player[63] was the second most attacked vulnerability in 2009. The same report also recommends to employ browser add-ons wherever possible to disable Adobe Flash Player when visiting untrusted sites. McAfee predicts that Adobe software, especially Reader and Flash, will be the primary target for attacks in 2010[64]. Adobe applications had already become the most popular client-software targets for attackers during the last quarter of 2009[65]."

I'd have to go and find it but I believe there is a tool that you use to make sure you have completely removed the old version.
Have you gone back to the Adobe site to check what version you have installed, you should be able to find the removal tool there as well ?

Ok, last night I had to reinstall my flash cs3, in which I think my previous Adobe Flash Player was uninstalled.

After which, I reinstalled and found that some sites, such as newgrounds.com, will say I don't have a flash player installed.

I've tried installed the flash player numerous times and also deleting my temporary internet files,

any help is appreciated on how to fix this problem

I had similar issues. The problem in my case seemed to be that the previous install had not been completely removed and was interfering with my browsers recognizing any new installs. I followed the directions here http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_14157&sliceId=2 and then reinstalled the flash player and all was fine.

You have to uninstall the old version of Flash first and then install the new version. The link on Youtube will take you to Adobe and the instructions are there. It won't work if you try to install without uninstalling the old version. I did this myself on Friday and it works.

I am using Windows XP Pro SP3, IE8 and I keep getting the same message over and over. I need to correct part of the window message so here is the whole thing: "Adobe Flash Player Update Service 11.3 r300 has encountered a problem and needs to close". I don't know why because the flash player is updated and I believe is fine. I don't know what to do with it and it is "EAR-A-TATE-ING". Help Thank You

Hi -Can you just click on Start > Control Panel > Add / Remove then look to see what version you do have installed now -I turned mine on today and got a screen for updating one of the Adobe items, might have been Flash Player, but I needed to wait fot my internet to kick in to installThe reason you get them is because you have clicked to "Have Auto updates installed" or "Tell me when updates are ready to be installed" that is all
