(about 4-6 weeks?) Flash made a change to how you remove Flash. As of now you need to use their Flash Un-installer exe titled:
"1209_uninstall_flash_player.exe" (204Kb) which you can get from their site. You'll need to run the uninstaller each time you want to update to newer version like current 10.0.45.2 (? changes very often) except possibly for Firefox plug-in (?) which I *think* does it all in one shot as an online install. I don't use FF so not sure. Hope this helps!
Secunia PSI tells me I have 1 insecure program
When I try to delete that ActiveX control, this pops up
"You need permission to perform this action."
I run Vista with UAC turned off.
Is it a risk and if so, any suggestion on how to delete it?
This info leads me to think I need to boot in Safe Mode to remove it.
Extra Information / Known Issues with Adobe Flash Player 10.x
When updating Flash for IE, you need to close all programs that use Flash, including the PSI before applying the Patch, which is done by right-clicking the PSI icon, running in the tray, and selecting exit.. The PSI uses Flash for graphics, so the program cannot be successfully updated while the PSI is running.
