    Several of our systems are reporting patch failure KB923789

    It seems to be a patch for Flash Player version 6; since the user already
    has Flash Player version 10 the path is failing.

    Can this be fixed?

  2. The patch is offered if flash6.ocx is present, irrelevent of which
    version of Flash is installed. Suggest you search the system for all
    instances of flash6.ocx and delete all copies found in the WINDOWS
    directory, only.
    Some programs contain the outdated, vulnerable copy. Hopefully, the
    programs will be updated in the future. If I knew for certain that you
    could safely delete the PROGRAM copies then I would recommend doing so.
    I don't.
    BTW, the copy of flash6.ocx that is present in WINDOWS should be located
    in WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash
    If you have difficulty deleting it check the Permissions.
    AND, the latest Flash Player is at v.9.0.28.0
    Were you referring to Shockwave 10 ?

  4. Uninstall and reinstall Flash -
    1. How to uninstall the Adobe Flash Player plug-in and ActiveX control
    http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=tn_14157
    Due to recent enhancements with the Flash Player installers, you are now only able to
    uninstall by using the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller

    2. Then get Flash here: http://www.adobe.com/downloads/

    more info:

    or easy link: http://www.adobe.com/go/tn_19166


    If that doesn't help - hide the update.

  5. I did this and it helped somewhat, the uninstaller that is. It didn;t delete
    everything. After running the uninstaller (with an unknown publisher) I went
    to windows/system32/macromedia/flash/ and deleted all the flash ocb i could
    and installed an update from adobe flash player download center. It seems to
    work.
