Adobe Flash Player Reaches EoL (End of Life)

Adobe Flashplayer

The final scheduled update of Adobe Flash Player for all regions outside of Mainland China was issued on December 8, 2020.  It will no longer be supported after December 31 2020, as having reached EoL (End of Life).  Beginning January 12, 2021, Adobe will block Flash content from running in Flash Player. 

Although Microsoft has made KB4577586 available in the Microsoft Update Catalog, it will also be released via Windows Update and is expected to be included in the Microsoft January 2021 Security Updates.

As indicated in the below-referenced Microsoft "Update for the removal of Flash Player", if you are using a browser that supports NPAPI (Firefox/Pale Moon/MyPal) or PPAPI (Opera and Chromium-based browsers), it is necessary to also use the referenced Flash Player Uninstaller. (Note:  a restart will be needed when running the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller.)

"This update only removes Adobe Flash Player that was installed by your version of Windows. If you installed Adobe Flash Player manually from another source, it will not be removed. For more information about how to remove Adobe Flash Player, see the Uninstall Flash Player | Windows topic on the Adobe website."


Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
