You have an option to stop automatic installation of Flash Player.
If Flash Player is installed in your machine, go to the following page: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/find-version-flash-player.html
Right-click the second animation, click Global Settings.
Click Advanced and select Never Check for Updates.
I am not trying to stop the updates, I just want the software to remember the choice I made last time I had to do an update. Not sure why I have to check the same box every time the software needs to be updated.
It just doesn't make much sense to allow automatic updates to software that is buggy to begin with. What if the request to update came from a hacker? Would it then be safe to allow automatic updates?
See where this is going?

If this setting is getting reset, it's most likely due to a third party cleaning tool that is clearing out your C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\macromedia.com\support\flashplayer\sys folder. In particular, the settings.sol file could be being deleted.
Need help also signing in to get update on Abode Flash Player and it is still telling my sign is no good. I have changed my password and it still will not update Abode Flash Player. Really frustrating. Thanks Peta
I have the same problem sign in to Adobe but when I download app Acrobat or Flash player password in not recognised. i have also reset password but still got the problem!!!
This password prompt is presented by your operating system, and is intended to keep you from accidentally installing software.
If this is your personal machine and you don't need a password to log into the computer when it first starts up, you can probably leave the password blank and click OK to get past this prompt. If this is your personal machine and your normal password isn't working, check to make sure that CAPS LOCK is off, and type the password carefully.
If this is your work machine and it's asking for an Administrator password, well, you'll need to have a conversation with your friendly IT person.
If you're still stumped, you may need to reset the password on your Mac:
