My PSI scan results in an update required for Adobe Flash Player 9.x (ActiveX control) when in the 'add and remove programs' it clearly shows I have version 10 loaded!

Am I missing something here?

I just did some quick calculation and there are now more than 2000 threads about Adobe Flash Player. I suggest you see the solution in those threads.

I take it U are a new member & what @HBR says in the previous post is very relevant. There are now many good solutions on this Forum to a mulitute of problems. It is just a matter of searching for the one that suits U. That said, here is the solution for Flash.

To remove all versions of Flash from the C drive of your PC:

1. Download & use the flash Uninstaller from here:

#####Before actually running the uninstaller it is a good idea to close all browsers,PSI and any other programme U think may be using Flash #####

2. Reboot to clear out any left over ocx files.

3. Rescan using PSI - if there are any insecure Flash elements left what is the path to them? U should not proceed to stage 4 until all U clear any problems found.(The PSI overview page may look a little odd because it uses Flash for the pictorials)

Note: At this stage,if PSI finds any elements of Flash in the C:\i386 folder or on any drive other than C that is an OEM reinstallation partition (normally D drive) or a drive U use solely to backup your work U can safely create an ignore rule.

4. Reinstall the latest Internet Explorer Flash Player from here:

4A.If U are also using Firefox, Opera and other Gecko-based browsers U need this link as well:

5. Go to add/remove & double check Adobe have not installed the useless Adobe Download Manager - if U see an entry remove it.

I apologize for the digression, but I couldn't find the topic I need.
I have the most recent version of Flash installed, and the scan did not indicate otherwise; but it said it could not display my progress chart because I didn't have the latest version installed...
'Tis a conundrum...
My PC crashed last week and the shop removed the registry errors and malware only. It worked fine until then. Today is my first day back online and I patched the three items found (other than IE8 for-which there is no fix...).
Your guidance would be most appreciated.
