    Use Autoruns to see if something is installing it. Also, there may be a policy set which is installing it - see How to edit registry.pol file. I found the utility in that thread very useful.

    Right-click on the Start button --> Windows PowerShell.
    Run the following command and see whether there is a task related to Adobe Flash Player.

    Please run the command again and post the line of the output showing Adobe Flash Player PPAPI Notifier.

    For example,

    Code:
    \Microsoft\Windows\Application Experience\     ProgramDataUpdater                Ready

    Try using Revo in advanced scanning after booting to Safe Mode. Check post #13 here.

    This KB is only for the embedded version of Flash used for IE and Edge, not the stand alone Flash Player.
