I am not inclined to view videos on my pc as I can still read. However I keep getting the message that I MUST update Adobe Flash. Is there another piece of software that will do the same thing so I can dump Adobe?

While there are no direct alternatives to flash player, you can uninstall it and use Google Chrome web browser as your primary web browser. It has it's own version of flash installed. complete with silent updates. If your using Chrome, then you can install flash. You can uninstall flash if you prefer in general, but your web browsing experience may suffer as a result. Mileage will vary.

As long as you have it installed, you need to keep it updated due to security concerns. With the latest version (11.2 for windows), Adobe has implemented an auto update feature. To learn more about that you can visit http://forums.adobe....message/4296431 . You can go here http://www.adobe.com...re/flash/about/ to check on what version you are running.

I use Firefox and Chrome as my primary web browsers and have no need to have Adobe flash installed.
