How Do I Remove Flash 11 and install previous version?

Oct 28, 2011 8:32 PM

Hi Everyone,


While Flash Player 11 seems to work for me with most things (e.g. YouTube, most news and video sites, etc),  I find that it is crashing all the time when playing browser based games that use flash.


I was over on Yahoo's website and found that it kept crashing on this page or crashing when trying to load any of the games listed on that page.


Given these problems (and judging by the numerous posts on this forum... it looks like there are many issues with version 11), how can I uninstall Adobe Flash 11 and restore it back to version 10, x, x, x ?? 


(Note: I am using x's just because I don't remember exactly what the previous version of Flash was)
