Occasionally I will be on a website and I will get an error message. The explanation they give me is:

Problem description
The error was likely caused by:
Macromedia Flash

Recommendation
Macromedia Flash was created by Macromedia, Inc.. A new version of Macromedia Flash is available for download that should address this issue. Macromedia, Inc. recommends updating to the latest version of Macromedia Flash to take advantage of security and stability improvements. Click the following link to go to the update page:
Macromedia, Inc.


Is it safe for me to download that update? I wouldn't want to download something that would cause more problems than it helps.

Thank you.

Use this link to check if you have the latest flash and download :

Oops, I get an error page.
But, it is safe to download an updated Macromedia flash?
Thanks.

I just tried this link. It works. The other was working 2 days ago. If you are asking if you should install the latest flash player, the answer is yes.

Just a friendly reminder, if you don't want the Yahoo toolbar, be sure to uncheck before downloading flash.

When I went to install, the yellow bar at the top of the screen came up and said:
"This site might require the following ActiveX control: Name. From: Publisher. Click here to install..."
It also said there may be some risks if I do so.
Are these risks worth it? Are they safe?
Thank you.

Active X from sites you trust are necessary, and in this case - yes

OK. Because I can download from Microsoft, so I assume that will be safe.
Just checking, so I don't do anything I can't reverse.
