Uninstall Adobe Flash in preparation for Windows 10

By Peter Chubb - Jul 28, 2015

The frequency of Adobe Flash Player updates have started to get out of hand, and not only are users becoming very annoyed, but also shows just how out-of-date this software now is. We have already seen a huge number of websites make changes so that it no longer needs to use Flash, which is great news for you and I.

We have seen a growing number of people uninstalling the Adobe Flash Player so that they no longer have to install regular updates, but also as a way to help them feel more secure in the knowledge that they do not have a piece of software that could leave them vulnerable to attack.

Windows 10 installation

People are now starting to prepare for the Windows 10 download to go live tomorrow, and so we have now started to hear from more people that have uninstalled Adobe Flash in preparation for Windows 10. However, you do not really have to go through all the hassle.

One of the Windows 10 install options is refresh, which means that if you have an older version of Windows you can select refresh when installing the new version, and what this will do is wipe all third-party software from your system. All your music, photos and other such files will remain on your computer.

Some people would rather wipe their system completely so they have a clean Windows 10 install, but the good news is that Windows 10 has a deeper refresh process than previous versions, and so a refresh will be perfectly fine for many of you that do not wish to back up all your files and totally wipe all data.

    sigh, but I don’t want to remove my 3rd party software. I would then have to re-install all of it.
