    Unreconciliable need for Administrative Privileges for Installation

    Lit_Reflex

      My automated detection of updates for Flash Player alerted me tonight that an update is available but claims that it requires administrative privileges in order to proceed with the installation.

       

      I was completely unable to locate, even with help from a Google search, the file responsible for these updates and so took the logical step of downloading the whole thing separately.

       

      I gave the installation file administrative privileges but it still claims "process not elevated".

       

      **This is a serious security issue that I need resolved.**

       

      It is insane to use programs/code that are susceptible to malware attacks without the ability to stay updated with the latest security updates and if my issue cannot be resolved I will have to consider ceasing all Flash activity.
