Hi @s5CCD,

Sorry, I don't understand your question either.

Please consult your operating system's documentation about removal of programs.

Also consult your browser's documentation about removing plugins and add-ons.

For copies of Flash Player distributed by Adobe, you can simply download and run our uninstallers:

If you still have questions, please write a super detailed question, include operating system and flash player versions, full path names, etc.
