i've had trouble installing flash player; it seems like forever, but it has only been < a year. tried various version iterations. each installation has completely failed. when it is "successful" it installs a process that consumes 50%+ of my cpu; it frequently freezes and locks my computer. i avoided reading the enews because of those problems. BOTTOM LINE: i don't want flash player to remind me to update/install it again. that means adobe has left something on my computer somewhere that will remind me periodically to install it. I WANT TO UNINSTALL AND REMOVE ALL "DUST" OF FLASH FROM MY MACHINE. i don't want that "thing" on my pc; i don't want adobe to analyze my drive to discover that i once had flash on my pc; i don't want adobe to remember that once i had flash on my computer. (i have a similar problem with adobe reader which i still have installed and occasionally need and use (because i don't know what to replace it with.) it too seems to freeze my pc, but eventually will load a document to the screen. that takes 5+ minutes then works fine if i am just reading a document; it is more difficult or close to impossible if i am required to sign a document, or change/add information. i usually avoid that by printing the document and ink in the information and send document via usps.
i have windows XP-SP3, 32b
i almost exclusively use firefox 40.0.2; internet explorer is on my pc but permanently deactivated to never start up automatically. i think I.E. is 6.0.2, although it may be 6.2.xxx. i have not activated internet explorer in months
i don't know what else to tell you, but i want any cookies or .... whatever .... that tells me, reminds me, recommends, suggests that i install flash player to be removed. this annoying behavior is not limited to adobe. other software, usually security-type, e.g., norton, mcaffe, avast, lastpass, etc. that ploy doesn't not convince me that they have the better product. if i uninstall XP then reinstall it that solves the problem, but it is getting harder and harder to do that and get service pack 3; sometimes a restore to previous configuration is a better, easier procedure
please help me to rid my hd (UNINSTALL) of this little subterfuge
