    Did you check if a policy was set as my post 2?

    I now have the registry.Pol Reader. Don't know how to use it.

    Run the Registry Policy Editor from an admin account. Use to open the registry.pol files in these locations and check / delate anything relating to Flash:

    C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine
    C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\User

    Right-click on the Start button --> Windows PowerShell (Admin).
    Run the following command:

    Get-ScheduledTask "*Adobe Flash Player*"

    It will display all tasks whose names include Adobe Flash Player

    Run the following command:

    Get-ScheduledTask "*Adobe Flash Player*"|Unregister-ScheduledTask -Confirm:$false

    It will delete all tasks whose names include Adobe Flash Player

    I did all that and uninstalled Flash Payer again. Seemed to have worked --- until I booted up this AM. There it was again.

    Did both #17 and #18 above.

    Flash Player returned upon re-boot.

    Do everything once again. Disconnect your PC from the Internet. Restart Windows.
    See whether Adobe Flash Player comes back again.
