Thanks again. How many 'offers' do we need to watch for this time? :smileysad:

Seems like it's taking more time to opt out than it does to get the product. But then maybe that's the way it's designed.

thanks
I download the adobe flash player installer directly.
I use the flash player for active X link since I iuse Vista 32 bit OS
in the past the would be an active x link for 32 bit and a seperate one for 64 bit. But I do not see two seperate links now.
Anyone else notice that?
page with the link is
helpx. adobe.com /content/help/en/ flash-player/ kb/installation-problems-flash-player-windows-html
(I broke up the address to keep it safe

Hi Calls I just checked the adobe download site for flash player and it seems to be  only available only in one type for both 32 bit and 64 bit. I did notice this morning when I downloaded from majorgeeks .com that the size of the download was about 9 mb that may be the reason for the larger download size

Flash has released a 64 bit flash player since 11.0.1.152.   The installer includes BOTH the 64 & normal 32 bit versions.

Important heads up: the latest version of Adobe Flash Player (version 11.3.300.257) is causing Firefox 13 (specifically the plugin-container process) to crash. This is due to the new Protection Mode Adobe has implemented in the latest version. Information and workarounds are over here - I have deinstalled Flash Player altogether until a fixed version is released (just disabling it doesn't seem to help):

Do NOT downgrade to a previous version of Flash Player because previous versions contain security holes!

Thanks Yaso_Kuuhl,

 

I did not know this,  so will use Chrome until a fix is released (hopefully soon).
