For those not fluent in Dutch, here is the English version of the directions to disable Flash in Internet Explorer:

hmm…wonder why user don’t use the Auto update feature when they install to prevent vulnerability to start with…

I use “ask” . A window pops up when there is an update & if it’s not convenient I can select “remind me later” .
The link DrageMester posted that shows the Flash player version is correct except it reports my browser as Google Chrome but I’m using Opera Next or beta whichever name you like best.(The same browser).

I have a Firefox addon, which replaces all Flash applets with a clickable placeholder. Firefox will not even load Flash Player into memory unless the placeholder is clicked. Flashblock for all!!!. PS: Flash Killer is a nice way to kill Flash applets that are already running.

Flashblock is good and I use it myself in Firefox, but on some sites it makes videos unplayable even when clicked.

I also have enabled click to play in Chrome and Internet Explorer, so that I get to choose which sites Flash will play on.

I checked my version when I read this story but it had already been updated to the patched version.

Always best to sure though. :wink:
