View Full Version : Adobe Flash Player Update Servive 11.3 r300

28-07-2012, 10:36 AM
Several times recently including today (28/7/12), an error message has arrived on screen, saying:

"Adobe Flash Player Update Service 11.3 r300 has encountered a problem and needs to close."

It wants to know if I want it to advise Microsoft. I use win XP. Is there anything that I can do?

Microsoft wont do anything, its not their product. Uninstall it then update it to the latest version. Its just been updated to 11.3.300.268. Its here. Untick the Mcafee option, you dont need it (http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/) If you have a different OS / browser, select it at the top

When you reinstall tick the option not to inform you of updates to avoid the problem you have been having.

Should have written above: These installs are clean and will not try to install crap, just run the uninstaller with all browsers closed then install the two versions and tick the option not to update or advise of updates available, easy-peasy.

Swear at it lol. Had that happen a couple of times today on a workshop PC - real annoying - swore at it and it came right ;)
