In the last weeks, my flash player has been acting up, especially when I use it to play games on Facebook. It's very "herky-jerky" (stopping, starting, stopping, starting), freezes up for long periods of time (up to 90 sec), or says I don't have either current or ANY Flash Player installed and I need to install it. If I let it sit long enough, it will eventually start running by itself.
I went to Adobe Flash Player Support, and it said I didn't have Flash Player installed on my computer at all. I clicked the 'Download Now' link - thinking it would simply replace the problem program & correct the issues. It downloaded, but it failed to install. SO... I decided to uninstall the program completely (from the Control Panel) and start over with a fresh download.
The 'Installed Programs & Features' list has TWO Adobe Flash Players listed:
Adobe Flash Player 27 NPAPI 5.71 MB (installed 15Nov17)
Adobe Flash Player 27 PPAPI 4.27 MB (installed 16Nov17)
Are these actually two different programs - and is this what's causing the player issues?
Do I need both of them?
Are they conflicting?
Is there an "Uninstall/Reinstall" download?
Windows 10 version 1703 64-bit OS
Opera Browser version 49.0.2725.47
Adobe Flash Player version 188.8.131.52
THANK YOU - in advance - FOR ANY HELP YOU CAN GIVE ME!!
