Specs: windows 8, 2.793 GHz / 4 gig
it says on the flash player website - that to change settings you need to use the online tool directly on their website - but my question is - is there not a program or managements tool that can downloaded and have it sitting in the control Panel ???

would make alot more sense - also I can not find any Option for turning Flash Updates Off - please help

Go to the computer Control Panel. There should be a Flash icon there with various settings.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

✔ Best Answer
Most of us turn off flash player or uninstall it because the ads got ridiculous a while ago, started bogging down the browsers, and reports that it increased the chances of infections made it unusable for us.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

"...reports that it increased the chances of infections made it unusable for us."

Precisely. Even Adobe won't be supporting it much longer:

And it's been considered risky for quite some time:

HTML5 is now widely used instead of Flash.

By the way, use Firefox with uBlock Origin and adverts vanish from most places, including here and Flash

I take it then Most of U dont use the Opera Browser because that thing seems to be HEAVILY dependent on FLASH. and keeps crashing if u dont let Opera browser update flash Automatically - !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just remember Opera is the Only one that has FREE VPN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Of course I hope that in the next version of Opera - they completely get rid of Flash if its such a security risk- Only thing is Most Websites have not converted yet to this HTML5 someone was mentioning- Also if flash goes down the Drain- U wont be able to play anymore Flash games - I would assume that HTML5 can handle those type of games.

Opera used to be my go-to browser, even though it was a little different from everything else. But then they started getting bloated and too heavily ad-dependent. Still use Firefox 30 (and a heavily modified hosts file) on my most-used XP machine. It continually tried to update itself up until a couple months ago. I still am part of the "if-it-works-leave-it-alone" crowd (obviously)...

For Flash controls, try here:

https://www.macromedia.com/support/...

Here is a bit of information from the site:

Note: The Settings Manager that you see above is not an image; it is the actual Settings Manager. Click the tabs to see different panels, and click the options in the panels to change your Adobe Flash Player settings

As far as I know this is no downloadable program.
Just bookmark the above site and use it when you need to make a chaange.

"Just remember Opera is the Only one that has FREE VPN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

It's not a true VPN. You might want to look into it.

"Do We Recommend Opera VPN?

Definitely not. It is somewhat ok for accessing geo-restricted sites now and then. But again, your real data gets leaked. And you can’t be sure you won’t face the law for accessing a forbidden website.

Opera VPN is not a real VPN. It’s a proxy service that just allows you to trespass restrictions. It logs your activity, and its jurisdiction creates plenty of concerns."
