    Failure to Delete

    I have Adobe Flash Player files that will not delete. I have used Adobe's program but it will not do it. I have used FileAssassin but it will not touch them. I've tried several ways suggested by different forums, but still no go. Does anyone know a good program that will delete files which are brain boggling?

    MS has made FP part of Win 10, but have found this article which may help, but why do you want to get rid of FP ?

    If you don't want to use Flash Player (and who could blame you), is it not good enough to disable Flash in Edge and IE?

    its possible to have several versions of flash. disabling or uninstalling can be done within the browser.

    For Internet Explorer (and Edge on Win10)
    For Firefox
    For Safari
    For Google Chrome
    For Opera

    use the link for a scan to check whether flash is onboard and for more info.

    I didn't want to get rid of it, it is just that the old files were hanging on and would not delete. I finally found a way to get rid of them and then reinstalled the update. All is fine now. Thanks.
