      Hello,

       

      Since a few days I upgrade computers I manage from Windows 7 to Windows 10. On a major part of them I have a problem.

      An old version of flash player is present on the old directory of Windows (created automatically by the upgrade of Windows) on exactly C:\Windows.old\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash.

      I want to uninstall them because it is a old version and so there is a security risk but it does not work.

      If I run the exe file file to uninstall the program is running but there is always the ocx file at the end. I have administrator rights but I cannot delete it.

      How can I delete it?

      I do not want to unistalled the version used by Windows 10 (that is integrated with it) but only this old version.

       

      Thanks in advance for your help.

       

      Anthony.
