I un-installed Flash Player successfully, but there are two directories containing files from flash player that I am unable to delete. I get a message saying I need permission from Flash Player to delete the files.
One of the directories is : c:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash
Other directory is;
c:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash%appdata%Adobe\Flash Player\%appdata%\Macromedia\Flash Player
Thanks for any advice on how to delete these files.
Which Windows version is this?
If this is Windows 8.1 and above, Microsoft embeds Flash Player in IE/Edge browsers. The standalone uninstaller does not remove the embedded Flash Player ActiveX for IE/Edge. If you have Windows 8.1 or 10 it could explain why the files aren't removable.
To remove the embedded ActiveX Control run Microsoft's optional update https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4577586/update-for-removal-of-adobe-flash-player
Thanks for your reply. I have Windows 10 and using Chrome as browser.
