Windows 10: Outdated FlashPlayer ActiveX-component in Windows 10 since DAYS

    Outdated FlashPlayer ActiveX-component in Windows 10 since DAYS


    PSI (Personal Software Inspector) - a tool that checks your system for outdated SW and possible security issues (highly recommended, BTW) - reports SINCE DAYS that the ActiveX version of Flashplayer is out of date and a possible security issue.
    A "Check for updates" that I just triggered reports "Your system is up-to-date". Oh - really?
    As Windows 10 updates the built-in FlashPlayer component now automatically (or at least that's what they tell us...) and one cannot update that ActiveX component manually any more: does that mean that MS is lagging behind with its updates for that long? Very security minded, indeed!

    It shows up as a security update for Flash. But one thing I have noticed is that when I use wushowhide.diagcab to hide updates I don't want, several updates show up that I do want and they never show up in my Updates Notification when new updates arrive. I have about 4 new driver updates that are just sitting there, they never get installed when I do my Updates.
