    And Adobe issued an update on 8/13. Hopefully it addressed this vulnerability.

    New updates as of Sept. 20th: Adobe - Security Bulletins: APSB10-22 - Security update available for Adobe Flash Player.

    Based on past experience, you should be able to directly download the current Flash player installers from these URLs without installing a download manager or third party extras:

    ActiveX version for IE:
    http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flas..._player_ax.exe

    Plugin version for other browsers:
    http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flas...ash_player.exe

    Always be cautious and carefully check the URL, then save and scan any EXE downloads before running them.

    Installed this latest Flash thanks.
    Question ... should we completely uninstall all existing Flash components using the Uninstaller and then what's left over after reboot in System32/Macromed including the Flash folder. It seems that the Adobe Uninstaller does not remove 'all'.

    If you happen to be using IE9 beta, you'll be directed to install from Adobe Labs - Downloads: Flash Player "Square" Preview Release.

    Hi Ron,

    I always uninstall the old Flash packages before installing the updated version. But I have been using Revo Uninstaller to do so. Revo Free Edition works fine with 32 bit applications, and after it uses the standard uninstaller, it checks for registry keys and other folders/files left behind in the process so they can be identified and deleted. You can download Revo Uninstaller Free here.

    Thanks folks for your inputs.
    I am still on Vista32 and IE8 which are both running nice and stable so might be a while before I move up a notch to the latest and greatest.
    To (hopefully) avoid dodgy downloads, I always go to product web sites and not via 3rd party links. I guess this helps defend against nasties.

    I do not bother doing that routinely. Perhaps I should do it immediately, but I generally wait for a Secunia scan to flag up issues with missed DLLs in strange folders, etc.
