As of Windows 8.1 Microsoft embeds Flash Player in Internet Explorer (and Edge on Widows 10) with all updates being released by Microsoft via Windows Update, and as such, the Flash Player uninstaller does not remove Flash Player for IE/Edge on these versions of Windows (the Uninstall Flash Player for Windows tech note does states the instructions are not applicable to Windows 8 and above). Unfortunately, Microsoft doesn't provide a standalone installer to re-install Flash Player for IE on Windows 8 and above and Edge on Windows 10. You can try one of the following options to repair the deleted Flash Player from your system:
- Run System File Checker to repair files/permissions: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929833
- Find a previous Flash Player Update for IE/Edge KB article and run the installer. See https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/2755801 for links to KB articles for previous version of Flash Player updates for IE/Edge which contain links to download the updates.
- You may need to do this several times until you find one that works, that is if you find one that works.
If these options do not fix the problem, please contact Microsoft customer support or their community forums.
Ya, So, Well, Win10 support forums are interesting and informative on this topic HOWEVER no solutions are forthcoming. Nothing works. RE: POGO "I have seen the enemy and it is us"
Adobe is the problem and Windows 10 is the problem.
