FlashPlayerUpdateService.exe - Application Error

The instruction at "0x7c9313c0" refrenced memory at "0x00000005". The memory could not be "written". Click on OK to terminate the program.

It was rather disturbing to receive the captioned error message popping up on the PC all day long, other than resort to disk formatting, is there a solid way to get rid of this error thoroughly and permanently?

Flash is a sometimes annoying piece of software and in no means a critical Windows component, so:

NO, don't re-install!!!

Just press the direct-link to the official Flash Uninstaller here: Direct Download Link
Or find it on the official Adobe site here: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html#main_Download_the_Adobe_Flash_Player_uninstaller
Save it to your desktop, close down all applications, and double click the file you just downloaded.
That will un-install the Flash you have on your system. Reboot and the problem should be solved.

Optionally, after you are sure it's solved, you could re-install the latest version of Flash right here: http://get.adobe.com/en/flashplayer/
But most software and applications run fine without it, so only do so if you're sure you even need it.

Many thanks for your favourable assistance. The search funtion (S) reported no traces of Flash. Neither could I locate it in Drive C nor in the add/remove area of the control panel. I,in fact,know nothing about Adobe Flash. It often appeared automatically on the screen each time I switched on my PC. Thank you once again for your saving my time looking here and there and it is highly unlikely I would touch on this program from now on.

I would think so unless there are other unforseeable incidents arisen. Your advice is much appreciated.

Glad I found this. Adobe must have put out a bad update because I've had this exact same problem on all of my Windows XP computers, as well as Flash crashing occasionally on all my Vista and 7 computers. I simply turned off the auto update on flash, but now I'll go and fix it this way.
