Flash player update

[ Edited ]

I keep getting an Acer pop-up that says "Please Download Latest Version of Flash Player". I have updated adobe flash player and that didn't help. Any suggestions? Its an Acer Aspire 5733 purchased new less than one year ago.

Re: Flash player update

Where does this pop up occur?

What programs are running?

Re: Flash player update



I have an acer aspire one D270.  I have also been getting an acer pop-up.  I asks me to download the

latest version of flash player.  I have done that, but keep getting the message. 


This started happening when I decided to "clean" my computer and get rid of some unwanted programs.  I deleted a flash player that looked like it was a duplicate.  My computer functions OK, but it bothers me that I can't fix it.  I tried do do a restore - did not work.  I think the acer system has flash player installed at a certain location, and when I now update, it gets downloaded and installed, but not to the location where the acer system wants it to be.


Can anyone help?

Re: Flash player update



In this issue, I would suggest that you disable the Acer updater from the start up items and check whether the issue persists.

I have an Acer Aspire V3-571G laptop. I have had that problem myself. Totally annoying having that pop-up 30 times a day.

I solved it by ditching the screensaver. It was not nescessary to disable eg. Acer Update. I found that the screensaver has a legacy Flash Player built in and it does not update when updating by the pop-up.


The easiest way to ditch the screensaver is to follow this path and doubleclick the Uninstall.exe.




Best of luck with your problem
