    Why are there two versions of flash player on my laptop?

    frustratedfrequently Level 1

      I'm running 64 bit Windows 7 Professional which seems to handle both 32 and 64 bit software.  I use Firefox as my default browser and use MSIE only when I must. 

       

      A Flash update failed so I checked the uninstall programs list thinking I'll just uninstall and reinstall the latest.

       

      Huh?  I found both "Flash Player 10 Active X" and "Flash Player 11 Plugin 64 bit."  Now I've no clue what failed to upgrade nor why there are two versions.  Why 10 AND 11 and why is one called "Active X" while the other is called "Plugin". 

       

      And, to confuse me further, there is also Adobe AIR.  I don't know what or why or how to deal with all of these.  Would somebody kindly explain?

       

      And, how do I figure out what update to which failed?
