We've been actively removing flash from all computers on our network. PDQ Inventory has a flash collection under Runtimes. I've noticed the collection for Flash IE has not budged at all. Flash for Firefox, Chrome, and Opera have been reduced significantly.
I'm using the Adobe Flash Uninstaller, with the Windows KB4577586, and Powershell to remove leftover folders, but it doesn't affect the Flash for IE collection. Disabling flash within IE does nothing. Deploying a group policy blocking flash on IE and Edge does not reduce the amount of device in the collection.
I noticed the filters within the Flash for IE collection is set to "hotfix." Is it possible that even though flash is uninstalled, PDQ is seeing an old hotfix on the device and thinks Flash is installed?
