Secunia advised my 8.x is end of life and the file causing the issue was
E:\windows\system32\Macromed\Flash\Flash8a.ocx. As you see, it is on my extra drive. When I try to delete the file, I get the message that access is denied. When I try to delete the whole folder, I cannot do so because I cannot access the Flash8a.ocx file. When I uninstall the Flash player from Adobe, it deletes the one on my C drive (which of course I want and need to keep). Does anyone have any idea how to get rid of it from my E drive? I do not need it there.

I hope this is clear. There is an Uninstall file (UninstFl.exe) in the same folder but it does not seem to work. Perhaps taking care of this problem will serve the purpose.

Many thanks.
Ellen

What does your Extra drive do? Is it a backup drive? If so just create an ignore rule.

CREATING A GLOBAL IGNORE RULE - ALL PSI VERSIONS EXCEPT VERSION 2 (BETA)



1.Click on the SETTINGS tab>scroll to the bottom & click on CREATE IGNORE RULE

2.In the RULE NAME BOX insert the Drive detail - My Backup Drive for example.

3.In the RULE BOX type E:\4.Click SAVE IGNORE RULE>CLOSE

5.Carry out a full PSI rescan & all should be in order.

All [b]hard drives
will continue to be scanned by default but the result from the drives ignored will not be published.

Adobe provides these instructions for getting rid of the Flash Player: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html
