Tried to delete file c:/windows/sysWOW64/macromed/flash10h.ocx but was unable to do this. Message says administrator permission required, but I am the administrator.

As long as U are logged on as an Adminstrator & do this it will clear Flash.

REMOVE OLD ADOBE (FORMERLY MACROMEDIA) OCX FILES.

If Flash was running when an update was attempted it will not remove all of the old (and vulnerable) files.

To remove these files:

COMPLETELY EXIT (using Task Manager if necessary):

a. All Browsers.
b. Windows Messenger.
c. Incredimail
d. All Adobe products
e. PSI unless using Version 2 BETA.

Can U please clarify what U mean. This thread is about clearing a Flash vulnerability.

Are U saying U are trying to read the PSI PDF manual & cannot because of a lack of a reader?

HI,

@panderson
If you have lost your ability to read PDF files I fear you have probably deleted the wrong program. The advice in this case was to delete Macromedia Flash Player (Which is an old version of the Adobe Flash player - developed before Adobe aquired macromedia).

If you want to restore your ability to read PDF documents, you can either download the Adobe Reader again, or you can download one of the many alternative, free PDF readers, such as the Foxit or Sumatra PDF readers. If you wish, you can search for PDF readers on this forum, as several threads have already been created discussing the merits of one reader compared to another.

hope this helps.

Thanks. I could not find Macromedia on my add/remove programs, clicked on download solution, and got another threat identified. Should I remove all adobe programs and start again?

All that is left is Adobe Air. Had enough of threats due to Adobe, so installed Foxit. Thank you for responding. Have now got to try and find out where my microsoft word has gone, probably deleted that as well and that does create problems, big time!
