I have been having a problem with one of the add-ons that is installed on internet explorer. It is the Adobe Flash Player add-on from Adobe systems incorporated. Recently every website I go to that I remember the information bar appears at the top of the page and says “This website wants to run the following add-on ‘Adobe Flash Player’ from Adobe Systems Incorporated’. If you trust the website and the add-on and want to allow it to run, click here…
I was wondering what I can do about this. I don’t want it to keep popping up all the time, it is just annoying. I never used to have this problem before and am wondering if it indicates a virus on my computer or what? I have not changed any settings on my computer to have it always start or anything. It seems to have just been a random change. Does anyone have a solution for this? I know some of you are going to suggest switching to firefox. Don’t I can make my own decision about which browser to use. I am not averse to using firefox except when I used to use it it would always start up quite slowly. I may try it again in the future but not yet.

I had the same problem for a long time. I tried to uninstall and reinstall Flash several times. The installation usually seemed to work, but then websites would refuse to display items and told me to install or update my Flash player. I tried to delete everything Flash-related from my registry, but that did not help. I finally solved the problem by finding a “heavy-duty” Flash un-installer on the Adobe website. After running it and re-installing Flash yet again, everything has been working fine, and I have successfully updated Flash a couple of time since then with no problem.

Here’s a link to Adobe’s uninstaller: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/t…..14157.html
You won’t be able to view Flash-based content until you reinstall Flash. Fwiw, I’m of the opinion that Flash is some of the worst code I’ve ever seen, imho. HTML5 video is the Flash-killer on the horizen, afaict.

I agree with the linked article.
