Ok, so I am taking an online math class that requires me to use an online math program. Well, since Adobe released the 10.1 verison of flash player the program is having a problem capturing the answers. It records them, but when you go back to see what problems you have missed it just shows them all as incorrect. Today the Plato learning enviroment released an email stating that you can either download version 9 to correct the proble, OR download 10.2 beta. Here are my questions.

1. Adobe flash player 10.2 beta seems to only be available for 32-bit systems, and I have a 64-bit. Is this compatiable?
2. What security risk come with using the beta version?
3. How much am I risking my computer by downloading the old version? Side note- I rarley open emails, never visit junk sites (I only go to 5 total website including this one out of fear of viruses), and have all ad-onns disable from running in IE explorer. I have also followed the instruction on your site for cutom security settings. I also almost never open ANY emails. This is my personal school computer and it MUST remain safe. Oh, and I have paid avg internet security 2011.

Thank you and I hope this is the correct forum, Angela
