Task Manager entry question

Whenever I am online, if I bring up Task Manager I see: FlashUtil32_11_7_700_169_ActiveX.exe *32. What is this & why is it there? I can End the process w/o any problems arising, but it comes back after a while.

It's because you have Flash Player installed and went to a site that required it.

I believe if you have protected mode on, it shows, and it does not if protected mode is off. You could confirm.

Internet Explorer Protected Mode - Turn On or Off

But why does the description state: Adobe Flash Player Installer/Uninstaller 11.7 r700
Is anything actually being installed/uninstalled?
Also, if I end the process, I can still surf; so do I really need it running?

Everything I read said installer/uninstaller, but no, it's not installing anything. No, you don't need it running. A Guy
