Hi There

I have just downloaded 7 windows updates manually (why I dont know as I am set to Auotomatically download).

I then installed as usual but 1 did not install, it was (Security Update for Flash Player (KB923789))

Any ideas please

Interesting, that update was not part of the November release as far as I can see. There have been recentflashplayer issues which are usually fixed after usung the unistaller from Adobe then reinstall. The patch may load after that.

Uninstall. click here

Install. click here

I'm rather bemused by this:

1). Why should Microsoft be issuing a security update for Flash Player (which is Adobe software, not Microsoft)?

2). When I type KB923789 into the search facility at the Microsoft website it can't find it.

Yes, so am I it looks a little odd to me, I could not find it either.

In that case the uninstall /reinstall the latest version route from my links above seems the best outcome.

Thanks guys for your answers, what do you suggest I do then, if anything?

You do not have the latest version of Flashplayer the link from Coff provides info and explains the reasons for the patch and it contains a link to the Adobe site for futher info again.

The Adobe site recommends updating to the latest Flashplayer.

So, uninstall Flashplayer using the uninstall link I posted and reinstall using the install link I posted. If you do not want Yahoo toolbar don't forget to uncheck it on the download page.

You should not need to download the MS patch after that.
