  1. How can I check if this is a legitimate adobe flash player update?


    I keep getting this pop-up but I'm paranoid of scams so I want to double check that this is legitimate. so forgive me if I am overthinking this. The details are not very specific and I feel like it should say "update" not "download". Also, how can I check if updates are legitimate or fake?Thanks

    :)

    Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller 34.0.0.105

    Over on Techspot they have posted Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller 34.0.0.105

    In the "how to use this software" section there was this (its the "Copy/Run" at the very bottom that I'm concerned about):

    Download the uninstaller for Flash Player The Flash Player uninstaller executes on both 64-bit and 32-bit version of the Windows operating systems. Save the file in a location where you can find it easily after you restart your computer. For example, save it on your Windows desktop.

    Exit all browsers and other programs that use Flash


    The uninstaller does not work if any programs that use Flash are running on your computer.

    • Look at the taskbar. If the taskbar contains program icons for a browser or for a game that uses Flash, right-click each icon and choose Close. This example shows a browser in the taskbar:
    • Look at the icons in the system tray for programs that run in the background. Examples include AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, and games that use Flash (any file with a name that ends in .swf). If you see such an icon, right-click the icon and click Exit, as shown in this example:
    Run the uninstaller

    • Double-click the icon of the uninstaller that downloaded to your computer.
    • Follow the prompts. If you see the message "Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer?," click Yes.
    • Delete Flash Player files and folders.
      • Click Start > Run.
      • Copy and paste the following and click OK.
      • C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash
      • Delete all the files in this folder.
      • Follow step 1 to step 3 for the following:
        • C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash
        • %appdata%\Adobe\Flash Player
        • %appdata%\Macromedia\Flash Player

  4. How can I check if this is a legitimate adobe flash player update?

    I can't find Adobe Flash Player

    Hi Manal,

    I realize that you are unable to find Adobe Flash player in Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge. I will try to help you with this issue.

    To check if Adobe software package is installed on the PC, follow these steps:


    • Press Windows key + X and click on Programs and Features.

    • You will get the list of all installed programs on the PC.

    Suggest you to refer to these articles to check if that helps.

    Flash Player is integrated with Microsoft Edge in Windows 10. You do not need to install Flash Player.
