If you have "Allow Adobe to install updates (recommended)" selected in your Flash Player control panel (in the Advanced tab), you should be getting our silent auto updates. The problem appears to be occurring for you when a major update occurs. You have a couple of options here. First, you can visit the link below whenever this occurs and download the offline installer files that should work properly. The second option is to ignore these update notifications and after 30 days we'll install it automatically (and silently.)
Thank you. I checked and I did have "Allow Adobe to install updates (recommended)" selected. I found a link on the page you recommended that updated my version (Active X) to 11.5 and I verified this in control panel. Now I can watch my basketball team get slaughtered by Kansas. Thanks again.
