Per the recommendation on another thread to beef up the security on my system, I ran the Secunia Online Software Inspector to check the version security of various software apps on my system. It turned up (among other things) that I've got not 1, but 3 versions of flash living on my system: Adobe Flash 10.0.12, Adobe Flash 9.0.47, & Macromedia Flash 7.0.19.

I have 2 questions:

1) Do I need both Adobe & Macromedia versions? What's the difference?

2) I checked the add/remove programs, and the Adobe verion 9 doesn't show up. Pretty sure I don't need both versions 9 & 10, but how to I get rid of 9?

Thanks in advance...!

Use the Flash removal tool.

Well that did it... This uninstalled everything, just had to re-install the correct version again. Pretty simple, whole thing took about 3 minutes. (Wish the damn browser hijacking was that simple!)

Thanks!

I use Secunia as well and their update links work with most programs but not Flash. You have to uninstall the old version first. So keep the uninstall tool handy as you will need it again in the future.
