    Hi there,

    I just noticed windows 10 still has the flashplayer as systemcomponent onboard.

    To be honest, I never understood why flashplayer needs system permissions, but now I'm just interested first of all to remove this package, as nowadays there's no need to have adobe's flashplayer anymore due to html5 and at least not as an autoupdated "windows feature" while so many other cool windows features have been removed.

    Any ideas how to find this flash package to purge?
