I got rid of the thing years ago.
It's a malware magnet and a product that needs constant updates.
For my needs I have not seen a problem.

If you only have 1GB of ram give some thought to bumping that up.

I think Adobe FlashPlayer is mostly needed for your web surfing. But now a days it's not that necessary. It really disturb you with it's release of updates. I think you don't have to keep it on your PC.
