Try It This Way
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / November 13, 2013 7:42 AM PST

At this point in time, I always uninstall the old and reinstall the new versions of Flash using the instructions below:

First, uninstall Flash by using the Flash Uninstaller at the link below..

http://helpx.adobe.com/en/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html

After that's done, then download the appropriate manual Flash player installer from the direct download links below. If running two browsers, you may need both installers.

Flash Player for IE 32& 64 bit:
http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/support/install_flash_player_ax.exe

Flash Player for Non-IE browser (Opera, Firefox etc):
http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/support/install_flash_player.exe

Hope this helps.
