    Most places don't use Flash any more. The ones that do, well, I wouldn't bother with them. If you go to a site and get a pop-up that says you need Flash, just go somewhere else.

    Click the Uninstall button.
    Also, check your your Control Panel /Programs and Features. If you see Flash in there, uninstall it.

    We went through this in October.

    Use the uninstall tool
    Code:
    http://download.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/support/uninstall_flash_player.exe
    Fire up the browsers you use and if you see flash listed under plugins, disable it then uninstall it.
    There are currently 3 versions of flash: activex for IE, NPAPI for Firefox, and PPAPI for Chrome and browsers based on Chromium.

    I'm not sure if the removal tool removes all 3 versions, that's why you will need to look in the non-IE browsers to see if it is still showing.

    Right! I had forgotten this. Will study it over. Unsure if I use it now or not.

    I DO see I have Adobe Flash Player 32 ActiveX and NPAPI but no idea if I use them or how.

    Whether you use them or not, they should be removed!
