    It seems to me that every time I complete the patch Tuesday updates, the very first dialog I get on reboot is an Adobe Flash update. Anyone else get that? Look like they are joined at the hip.

    Do you Adobe flash for IE, or are you using another plugin-flash browser?

    You're right. Starting from IE 11, M$ has integrated Flash with IE.
    For other browsers such as Firefox, Chrome, Opera etc., usual procedures apply.

    Actually from windows 8 and IE10, adobe flash has been integrated.
    One needs adobe flash installer only for non-IE browsers. This applies for both win 8 and 8.1.

    Thanks all for the responses. Firefox is the browser I use most often, but I do use I.E. and Chrome too. Not sure why I jump around between browsers - guess I'm still trying to decide what suits me best.

    I use FF the most but somehow FF is buggy for me in windows 7 x64 (office pc). No problems in home pc (8/8.1). On win 7 x64, Whenever I open/click pdf, it gets unresponsive and then when it has completed loading the pdf, it says unresponsive plugin and should I enable it or whatever and not ask again. I do it but the same thing happens again.
