Thanks for that A Guy, I have updated to Adobe Flash Player version 13 for Plug Ins, but I notice in my Programs & Features that AFP for Active X is still showing V 12.
Where do the AFP for Active X updates come from?. Anyone have any clues on that?.

Did you also update the IE version?

Adobe - Install a different version of Adobe Flash Player

Uncheck the Optional offer if you don't want it

Or scroll down to the bottom of this page for direct download link Flash Player for ActiveX (Internet Explorer)

I prefer downloading new versions from here:
Adobe Flash Player Distribution | Adobe

For Me:
- The installs run faster and are much simpler
- There is NO OPT-OUT ADD ON that has to be unchecked !
- The install process does NOT delete the installation file I downloaded and ran

I download the latest 2 Windows installers, 1 time, and use them on all my systems.
I also use these latest installers for folks I help via Teamveiwer ...

The "Distribution" link for this is in First Post here:
Latest Version of Adobe Flash Player

Adobe Flash Player Update Security Notice
In the past I have accepted Adobe requests to update the Flash Player with no problem. Now I get a security notice that states my "current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded". I am no sure is this message is coming from Windows or Norton. Anyone else run into this?
