I need a solution to be able to remove Adobe Flash player from multiple machines remotley.

 

Preferably a command line that I can deploy with Desktop Central. 

 

Does anyone use a similar system or know of a method I can use to remove Flash Player from the devices?

 

I have created a configuration to run the uninstaller, which reported successful, but after checking the security portal, all the vulnerabilities are still on the device, after doing some research I realised the flash files may still be present and would need to run another command to delete these, unfortunatley these files will not delete.

 

C:\windows\System32\Macromed\Flash

 

Has anyone else come across this issue, I have had real trouble trying to remove these files and was wondering if anyone would be able to help?

 

Thanks,
Zach

This sounds like it's the browser embedded Flash Player files that remain, especially ActiveX Control files from IE/Edge.
