Adobe Flash Player 10.2
Curious....Flash Player 10.2 keeps popping up periodically (every few days) and says it needs to download/install an update. When I agree, the update is always version 10.2. It appears to download/install and everything seems fine, then a day or two or three passes and it does it all over again. This happens on more than one of my machines.

It seems to. It goes thru the sliding bar percentage and reports completed.

I've written down the full version # (1.02.159.1) as of just this minute. Perhaps there really are updates under the 1.02.xxx that I have not noticed.

10.2.159.1 is the latest version BUT if the updater detects thjat there are other browsers on the computer, it will often keep trying to update them . However the autoupdater only works in IE not FF, or oany other browser & Chrome uses its all version that is often 1 version behind
