I’m running far behind on some things.
EP sent this in last week…
Adobe has released new security updates for Flash Player, Shockwave Player and Acrobat Reader this July 2015.
Adobe Acrobat & Acrobat Reader patches posted in Adobe security bulletin APSB15-15:
Adobe Shockwave Player update posted in Adobe security bulletin APSB15-17:
Adobe Flash Player patches posted in Adobe security bulletin APSB15-18:
(this one is the second batch of Flash Player updates this July as they supersede
the ones found in Adobe security bulletin APSB15-16)
And I’m not upgrading to Windows 10 anytime this year as I’m uncertain of how
automatic updates will be delivered to Windows 10 users. I still like to download and install Windows Updates manually and to “pick & choose” which updates to install and which ones to skip.

Also a new IE security update KB3049563 [MS15-043] came out:
I’ll hold off with the Windows/IE May 2015 security updates until after Memorial Day.
But the Adobe Flash and Reader security updates in May 2015 I’ll install as soon as possible.

This just in from ER…
Adobe has posted a new set of Flash Player security updates mentioned in security bulletin APSB14-26:
This feels like a re-release of the November 2014 Flash Player security updates first mentioned in security bulletin APSB14-24:
The ones from APSB14-26 provide additional protection from the security flaws first patched in the October 2014 security updates mentioned in bulletin APSB14-22:
A recent Majorgeeks.com article titled “Adobe patches Flash again”
Whotta mess. Makes these Chromebooks I’m reviewing look better and better.

Adobe has released another Flash Player security update on Feb. 20, 2014 here:
and I saw this article on Tweaking.com 10 days ago on fixing the high CPU usage
and improving performance with Microsoft Security Essentials here:
articles/pages/fix_high_cpu_ usage_of_microsoft_security_ essentials,1.html
I had been disabling real-time protection in MSE on some old XP/Vista computers
because of the high processor usage but using the tips on that Tweaking.com article
made MSE use less CPU resources and scans are much faster and now enabling
real-time protection won’t slow down those old XP/Vista machines that much.

If you’re seeing bizarre Flash behavior with IE 11, you aren’t alone – and the problems exist with Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1.
