adobe flash player
i hope this download works properly
Sincerely thank you for your feedback, we will try to do a good job in this regard.
To Fred Bittel:
You must have a non-IE Flash version already installed, or the Adobe auto-system update checker isn't reading your setup correctly. Uninstall ALL Flash instances on your system (plug-ins or stand alone utilities). Login to adobe.com and go to Flash update; it should come up telling you what version you need, including what browser you use and processor type (e.g. 32-bit or 64-bit), it will be all set to download/update.
The why is quite simple, as I said in my previous comment to the "other" Anonymous. If you want to run a well operating system, the user MUST keep drivers and programs/utilities updated; if you have a good program that properly checks for new driver/utility/program updates and tells you, you'll be ahead of the game to begin with...doesn't take much time... Not updating regularly with the most recent versions makes your system much more likely to crashes, lockups, poor performance, as well as much less secure.
I teach for all ages and find a simple explanation that they should read popups, as they many times are telling you about product updates that they have running (generally in the background). Then explain that the need for Adobe's numerous Flash updates is for the most part security-based. If you explain to them clearly, maybe even give them a simple booklet telling them about different things to expect as normal daily occurrences, you'll find they will retain what you teach them. Filepuma isn't and shouldn't try to control the frequency of updates shown, that defeats the reason for keeping everything updated to begin with. A system that is not kept updated regularly by the user is a poorly configured one that will have more problems than worrying about update frequencies.
I teach computers to senior citizens, most do not know or care what flash player is or does.
Senior citizens and I suspect 23/30/40/ and 50 year olds see the constant updates as meaning that something is wrong with their computer or that some virus/hacker is trying to mess with their settings/data. Adobe may be well regarded by the professional world but most ordinary users of PC's don't even know the name.
If updates occurred less often and the message to say there is an update were to be somewhat clearer in what it is about to fix, I think most users would become more informed and more comfortable about going ahead whit an update.
wondering why always keep up the updates? If you do this to me it sound like check in my computer? I think it should once that is all then all peaceful but keep bugging update all the time... can you tell me why?

I use IE. How do I stop constantly receiving non IE Flashplayer updates?
Add the option to delete updates the customer does not wish to install.
I häve Windows 8.1 and flash player fungerar not!
I agree that you should have the ability to delete any updates if you do not wish to install. Why is that option not available?
i agree that Adobe Flash Player is totally unstable with error messages and constant updates that must just be repetitions of previous ones.
Adobe flash regulary crash and pollute my firefox,is it voluntary?
This add on is a true stinking shit till now.
cannot keep Adobe Flash updated and functional. Have tried several means to update trying to avoid the sleazy providers. Looking at my programs i can see a recent Adobe flash but it won't function. I am using Mozilla for browser and have read it may not be the best at supporting Adobe? Any suggestions?
Why do these 100k+ paid 'programmers' learn how to program? Seems every week Adobe has new 'fixes' to install - and they used to be GREAT software

The Adobe Flash Player is most frustrating and non-adaptive piece of "software"(not the word I wanted to use) ever created! Internet Explorer just SUCKS, so I refuse to even use it anymore. But Fire Fox keeps "not responding" when ever I try to play ANY games, claiming that the 'Shockwave' plug-in crashed, but Adobe refuses to fix the problems! I have spent many hours trying to communicate my problems to ALL of these software manufacturers to no avail! Why can all the companies who manufacture software that is 'required' for Microsoft/Windows get their "****" together and play nice together?

ALL ADOBE SOFTWARE IS BUGGY!
It takes 2 to 3 or more tries to download because the downloads keep crashing.
Then you will find it takes a couple of tries to get the program to install.
Then within a few weeks you start getting notices of new "Important upgrades," that you need to download NOW to protect your computer.
I am fast becoming an Android fan.
Between Adobe and Windows 8 a few of my friends and colleagues are switching to Apple.
Because of my reputation for fixing computers, people have been giving me their non-working Computers.
I now have a collection of 5 top of the line HP Laptops, plus some Sony's, Toshiba and Dell's all are dead.

We need to be able to NOT download "Updates".
Certain Software Companies use Updates as a Beta Testing.
If I, or anyone else doesn't want Updates we should be able to delete the updates and not be pestered about downloading them.
After all, Freedom of Choice is the American way.
Just go into any food store and just stand in the cereal aisle and be overwhelmed by choices.
adobe flash never works right & is the biggest pain-in-the-ass on the planet. Especially with an XP computer. WHY ? I haven't a damn clue, other than Java won't allow it.
