    "Installs Stuff Without Permission"

    October 23, 2010  |   By jssand2

    Version: Adobe Flash Player 10.1

    Pros

    None at this time

    Cons

    Updated to this last evening and discovered that it installed Mcafee antivirus and assorted download managers/auto-update programs. You are NOT given an option to opt out of the install.

    Summary

    Avoid until Adobe changes the installation process.

    "Apparently I can't give it No Stars At All."

    October 22, 2010  |   By Garf_Bailey

    Version: Adobe Flash Player 10.1

    Pros

    Don't like anything yet.

    Cons

    Adobe Download Manager will not install this product now I've switched to Windows 7.

    Summary

    I can't use the product because Adobe Download Manager just doesn't download it. It just loops around and around, whether I access it via Firefox Add-ons, individual web-sites (like the BBC), CNet, or whatever. Why do they need to install their own download manager anyway? And does it install the software? Install it it does not. I was happily using 9 before, and I'm going to try to get back to it - hope I can. This is unacceptable from a multi-billion dollar outfit like Adobe.

    "Terrible-Insecure, impossible to update,"

    October 20, 2010  |   By BOBRGR

    Version: Adobe Flash Player 10.1

    Pros

    Needed to play some net content - Pro for adobe, CON for me...I wish I could replace it with something else

    Cons

    Can't update - tried multiple methods
    Insecure - Vulnerable to malware attack
    Intrusive Flash-based ads

    Summary

    I'm going to delete this because security against attacks is more important than flash content...A bonus is avoiding all those flash ads

    "A necessary evil"

    October 20, 2010  |   By Bill_Levinson

    Version: Adobe Flash Player 10.1

    Pros

    You need it to view a lot of Internet content; otherwise, it is more a liability than an asset.

    Cons

    It is so poorly designed that, in many cases, unwanted content does not respond to "stop" or "fast forward." In some cases, you cannot even identify the source of the unwanted content so you can ban it from your computer with the HOSTS file.

    Summary

    I have encountered cases in which Flash begins to play (without my invoking it in any manner) unwanted content. Only in some cases does right-clicking over it reveal the Web domain, which I can then ban from my computer through use of the HOSTS file. I am an adult but I can see how parents and workplaces have a legitimate need to ban certain Web sites from connecting to their computer systems but Flash player is of such poor quality that this is an issue.

    The bottom line is that, unless you need to view content that plays only in Flash, don't install this on your computer. To be quite blunt, the quality of the Flash player reflects, rightly or wrongly, on Adobe as a company and would influence my decision as to whether to purchase its other products. If Adobe has this little pride in the quality of its freeware, I have to wonder how much pride and quality it puts into products for it wants people to pay.

    "DO NOT UPGRADE TO THIS"

    October 5, 2010  |   By adobe10isrubbish

    Version: Adobe Flash Player 10.1

    Pros

    NONE whatsoever !

    Cons

    It will ruin your internet experience

    Summary

    If you like browser based games do not upgrade this version ! , it constantly crashes and no matter how many reports you send off nothing gets done about it.
    I have stopped using youtube and similar sites etc because of the constant crashing
    I use a laptop with 1 terra byte hd, 5 gig Ram and 2 next gen graphics cards ( each with their own memory cache) and it has been rendered useless ....to the point of me considering restoring settings to before i ''upgraded '' this pos flash player.
    The fact of the matter is this , if you're flash is ok DO NOT UPGRADE!!!!!
    It gets one star because you cannot give zero !
