    I got a WU today to remove Flash that was not on my machine??

    The Flash Player it is intended to remove is the one that was built in to Windows for use by IE and Edge, and which Microsoft regularly updated through Windows Update.

    Just checked WU and KB4577586 showed up but by the time I took a screen shot it had disappeared. Wonder if Microsoft is doing a periodical check if Flash is removed?

    Next time you may just press the PrtScn key immediately. Then, run Paint and paste the image.

    I'd taken the screen shot and it immediately disappeared after. So it didn't install anything. I use Lightshot so no need to mess around with ancient Paint.

    Hi KCR, the KB to uninstall Flash only applies to the embedded version of Flash.

    A quick search from the Taskbar, Windows Explorer or Everything Search by Void Tools should tell you if you have an independently installed version. Or any Uninstaller program like Revo or Wise.

    I used both the KB and Revo Uninstaller to clear out all my Flash junk.

    Flash and Windows Updates


    Hello

    I have Windows 10 Pro 2004 Build 19041.804
    One Windows update today removed the Flash player from my PC.
    The problem is I have a very old program that I need flash to run it. This is an email client (IncrediMail 5.8.6.4332 - which no longer updates) and without flash it won't even open.

    When I try to open the program, it says:
    "The conect version of Flash is not currently installed. Flash by Macromedia is a popular animation plug-in and is a required Incredimail component."

    I know the Adobe no longer supports Flash Player after December 31, 2020 and blocked Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning January 12, 2021, but I would need it because that would be the only way I would be able to continue using this email client.
    I tried to download and reinstall the Flash, but failed because it says "Application initalization error"

    Can anyone help me? Maybe "W10 Tweaker", aka Michael?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Best Regards

    Gabriel
