    I am being prompted to update my out of date adobe flash player for past 6-8 weeks but cannot seem to do this. I have followed all the usual instructions from adobe re: setting of IE security settings; removing old programs; loading new flash player via other down-load sites (as adobe one fail to initialise) but all to no avail. Does anyone have this problem and if so have they overcome it and how?

    I am not sure what is prompting you about Flash Player update, however, if it's something like Secunia, you will need to get rid of the OLD Flash Player before installing the new one, otherwise, both versions remain on your pc. You can uninstall Flash Player using the Uninstall Tool by Adobe which is here:


    Then install the new one. Then the updater services such as Secunia, File Hippo, etc shouldn't keep advising you that you have the old version of Flash Player installed. I hope this helps.
