I have observed that even after running the uninstaller, not everything related to Flash is removed. Still files and folders are left in Documents and Settings, and System32 folders.

Same here though I'm not too bothered about it considering I'm only going to re-install the latest version over the top in any case. Personally I've never witnessed any problems caused by Adobe Flash Player not being uninstalled correctly.

Yes, not exactly a problem... but if they are providing an uninstaller, its supposed to work right, and remove everything.

BTW... Flash causes a major slowdown of browsers by eating a whole lot of RAM, and CPU. I have tried it on both Iron, and Firefox. On Firefox too, it slows down everything after a while. Its worse on Iron, and everything starts to get to a crawl.

Good point.
As Adobe's uninstaller has been around for a long time now, one can only assume that they want it to leave behind those files for some reason

Interesting......
I virtually always use Opera and I can't say I've noticed any obvious slowdown whether related to Flash or otherwise. Usually I don't leave my browser running for any great length of time though. Opera gets launched and closed numerous times during any one day on my PC.
Maybe I'll have to take a closer look at what system resources are getting used though.

Like Sope, I don't experience slowdowns because of Flash. My observation is for
Firefox, I don't have it on IE8 which is my only other browser.
Plugin container goes up to 30MB and that's after a good while on Youtube. For
me, Flash is working better now or at least as good as before.
Anupam, maybe, you got too many things loading up your browser/s.

Yes Sope, I thought the same too... that they want the uninstaller to leave things behind intentionally, maybe for later installs.

Well, I actually play games on Facebook, which involve Flash. I experience slowdown then, after I have them run for some amount of time. They use a lot of elements and graphics, so maybe that's why things start to crawl.

It's not Flash that slows things down and I can comfirm the numbers that Bo presented. Want to see something amazing....go to a youtube video and play it without the video blown up to fit your screen. Check the resource use. This will allows all other elements presented on the page to run. Now make the youtube video full size to fit your entire screen. The memory and CPU use will go down because there are fewer elements of the webpage to process.
