My antivirus states I need to update and install myself Flash Player IE 18.104.22.168. Antivirus states it's critical. When I click download, I get redirected to Adobe Home Page. I've checked your forum and I can't find step-by-step answers on HOW to complete this (1st time using forum & not very tech savvy). I have checked Flash Player in my Control Panel. Clicked the Updates tab and I cannot do anything, it's dimmed. It is set to notify me when updates are available but never has notified me. Can someone please Help me??? Using Window 10 Home.

Microsoft does embed Flash Player in IE and Edge browsers on Windows 10 and all updates to Flash Player for IE and Edge are released by Microsoft via Windows Update. Windows 10 Home does not offer a way for users to disable these updates so I imagine the version of Flash Player in IE and Edge is up-to-date and this notification is for a different browser.
