Hi joesoap,

Common problem - so much so that I now just cut and paste my answer from the last time.


The latest versions are:

Adobe Flash Player 10.x ..... (ActiveX), for IE, and (NPAPI) for other browsers (eg Firefox).

It may be, that even if you have the latests version, there are still parts of the old version(s) remaining. You must uninstall Flash every time before you update, using an Adobe uninstall download.

It is probably best to start again. Download and run Adobe uninstall Flash from here:

Re-boot and re-scan PSI to ensure nothing of flash remains.

Download and install latest version:

You may have to install the latest version 2x. Once using IE, and once using another browser (if you use multiple browsers).

Re-boot and re-scan PSI one more time, and hopefully this will do it.


Let us know how it goes.
Good luck
