"Doesn't work on Windows 7 Pro 64 bit"

August 26, 2015  |  By LincNeb

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 18.0.0.232

Pros

None since it won't even finish installing

Cons

It won't install.

Summary

It's time sites like the BBC find alternatives to Flash as the A(ustraliian) BC has already done. I hate to say it, but really is time for Flash to disappear and only free video formats to be used!

"Rats! Why did I accept the update?!"

August 17, 2015  |  By pe0m

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 18.0.0.232

Pros

Nothing. I can't use this rotten thing.

Cons

After I did an automatic update my new MacBook Pro slowed to a stumbling crawl. There was no alternative to removing it.

Summary

PITA

"Won't perform properly.---------- version 18.0.0.209"

August 04, 2015  |  By nosmiley

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 18.0.0.209

Pros

I haven't found any pros. It won't download and run properly.

Cons

Won't download and run properly. each time I go to a new page, it says the page wants to download Adobe. If you click OK, then nothing happens.
If you click OK for ALL requests, it then goes to the page, and asks again if it can down load.
I have followed numerous directions about uninstalling Adobe Flash player. I have used Revo Uninstaller, Adobe Flash uninstaller, Iobit uninstaller, went to the adobe site and followed the directions. Tried several virus scans, Malware bytes, etc. with no luck. Tried Combo Fix. . I have windows 7, all updates. It's interesting that it all seemed to go to hello about the day windows 10 came out. . My computer began behaving differently, and I have not downloaded anything from Microsoft regarding windows 10. I read yesterday, it has a security problem already.

Summary

I may try a time or two more to download, and get it to work. After that , I'll do without. Anytime a company starts to believe you HAVE to have their product, the quality usually goes to pieces.
They may not realize, I don't actually have to have a computer at all, much less programs that refuse to work. Most of the people that use the computer are average intelligence. If Adobe wants to go after a higher intellect market, they don't need me. I think CNET is doing us a disservice to rate it excellent. They have become part of the problem.

"Warning: installs unwanted programs. Also vulnerable."

July 19, 2015  |  By Tryumph

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 18.0.0.209

Pros

Give me a couple of years and I'll try to come up with something.

Cons

Vulnerable
Buggy
Crashes
Obsolete

Summary

Many experts and ordinary people (like me) have hated Flash for a long time. It's full of bugs and vulnerabilities, plus it likes to crash. The recent news (July 2015) that Firefox has blocked it (by default) hopefully will prompt other software producers to do the same.

Even worse, if you go to Adobe's website to update flash, it automatically installs a McAfee antivirus program WITHOUT GIVING YOU THE OPTION. This is a gross violation of commonly accepted standards for freeware.

You can, however, defeat the McAfee installation. When you're installing Flash, progress bars will show two separate installations. After the Flash install is complete, close (not minimize) the window to abort the remaining installation.

Adobe has done many good things, including the invention of Postscript, Illustrator, Photoshop and the late, lamented PageMaker (although technically PageMaker was created by another company, Aldus, that Adobe bought.) So come on, Adobe, do another good thing: Dump Flash.

"Annoying and won't load"

July 15, 2015  |  By amsev1960

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 18.0.0.209

Pros

none whatsoever

Cons

This software downloads some sort of download management software that just sits there and won't install anything. I've tried to find a fix, because, yes, I would like to see my weather radar functioning again, but enough is enough. Adobe, FIX THIS!

"FP 18.0.0.203 is a piece of SH**"

July 11, 2015  |  By 123321xcb

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 18.0.0.203

Pros

Nothing. Nada. Xip. Zilch.

Cons

Crashes in opera...in FF...in IE...in Chrome

Crashes, crashes, crashes.

But, hey, at least my comp's not getting hacked.

Mega-meg Adobe, where the developers couldn't write clean code if their lives depended on it.

Summary

Find.
An.
Alternative.

"Please Someone Kill Flash!"

July 10, 2015

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 18.0.0.203

Pros

It occasionally plays videos.

Cons

Causes browser crashes and lockups.
Needs updating monthly. Sometimes more.
Pure bloat-ware. Needs more and system resources with every upgrade.
Adobe corporate trolls trying to fool consumers with positive postings.

Summary

Adobe has no imagination left. Products bloated and inflated to justify commercial customers paying for upgrades. The executives of this company are not indispensable. Please support any project that will replace flash. It is simply in all our best interest.
