Today, a Security Bulletin (APSB13-16) has been posted to address security updates in Adobe Flash Player 11.7.700.202 and earlier versions for Windows, Adobe Flash Player 11.7.700.203 and earlier versions for Macintosh, Adobe Flash Player and earlier versions for Linux, Adobe Flash Player and earlier versions for Android 4.x, and Adobe Flash Player and earlier versions for Android 3.x and 2.x. These updates address vulnerabilities that could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.

As referenced in APSB13-16, Adobe Flash Player 11.7.x will replace version 10.3.x as the extended support version beginning July 9, 2013. Adobe recommends users upgrade to version 11.7.x to continue receiving security updates. See this blog post for further details.

Adobe recommends users apply the updates for their product installations.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
