    Hi, If I may ask, why don't you use the included uninstaller from PDQ Deploy's collection?.

    I had few cases where the MS KB failed to uninstall Flash just because it was in use at the time of deployment. A secondary deployment failed becase the KB ended prematurely as "already installed". The uninstaller from PDQ got rid of the rest.

    Hi, If I may ask, why don't you use the included uninstaller from PDQ Deploy's collection?.

    I had few cases where the MS KB failed to uninstall Flash just because it was in use at the time of deployment. A secondary deployment failed becase the KB ended prematurely as "already installed". The uninstaller from PDQ got rid of the rest.

    I am running the PDQ uninstaller, running the Adobe Flash uninstaller from their website (probably the same uninstaller as PDQ), running the windows KB uninstaller, running MSIexec.exe uninstaller that targets the GUID registry key for NPAPI and PPAPI (just to make sure I'm uninstalling every instance of Flash), running a script that goes through all user folders, and removes the flash folders from \Appdata\Roaming\. This script also removes flash content from the SYSWow64 and system32 folders. Yes, it's overkill, but I'm trying everything.

    It's being removed from all the collections except for the "Flash for IE" created by PDQ in the collections library. I'm curious as to what PDQ Inventory is seeing... A hot fix, an old windows update? Is that why PDQ thinks Flash is still installed?
