    Win 10 Update of Flash Player How do I stop the update?


    I'm new here.
    I need help, actually my husband needs help.
    My husband uses & Loves Incredimail (not MY favorite) but the update constantly updates the Flash Player, which makes the Incredimail useless. How do I STOP this specific update?!!!

    Gratefully yours,
    Scooter

    You can test if you have the latest flash here

    Download Flash Player
    https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/
    I would personally remove Flash from add remove programs, and forget about that site.
    Note   Note
    Flash Player is integrated with Internet Explorer in Windows 10.
    You do not need to install Flash Player.

    If you are using Windows 10 and browsing the web with internet explorer you cannot download a version for that just Chromium , opera and Firefox

    Click image for larger version.

    If the website is asking you to install flash player I would be very Leary of installing it from their site

    Some virus scanners will block Incredimail (Norton)

    100% correct - if a website is asking you to update flash player - most likely a virus...
