Default adobe flash 11.1 question

i keep getting prompted to download adobe 11.1 flash player, the prompt is a nuisance, as i dont watch video, via the computer. my question is:

will adobe flash player 11.1 be ok to download if nothing more than to stop the download prompts?. i will never use it that i know of, as i dont much care for adobe anything.

is there another way to stop the download prompts?

xp home, 2003, sp3, m.s.e., mbam, hitman pro, and the newest love of my virtual life, sandboxie.
thanks in advance.

Look, Flash Player is not a video watching exclusive. Many websites you daily visit may work with it. But if you want to delete it, you can do it through control panel, programs, uninstall. With this you delete Flash Player and the startup check for update it performs.

A total revolution around there. Maybe you can try updating it, so there's no need to have any annoying message, but in fact, the message means good, it represents an improvement in performance, which leads to a better lifestyle surfing the web.

it means good for adobe, not the end user necessarily...

Isn't there an option to not see that popup? I mean depending on the browser it normally has a install/don't ask again option

i think im going to keep by-passing it, its almost annoying enough that it makes me think of the time i downloaded a photo in a social site because it was continually asking me to accept, when i did accept, well, i went and bought another computer, then i discovered this web-site and now i feel like i have an army of good people with pure intentions and i have never been steered wrong, and my vocabulary isnt large enough to explain how much i like this site, but i just cant make myself load 11.1.

I also think you can choose "don't ask again" when you get offered Flash Player but of course your choice won't be remembered if you do it while sandboxed.

Download Flash Player manually from Adobe's website. Run as administrator.
If you want to disable updates:
control panel > System and Security > Flash Player

your right thats worked for me 4gotton21 and ive waited to see if it would surface, but it hasn't. i just keep learning new things daily from this site, and i think deep down inside i have entered into an area (computers) that i will become immersed in trying to learn all i can, im infatuated with this kind of stuff and i dont know why, i even bought a junker computer to practice learning stuff on.

thank you all, 4gotton21 thats the fix that worked for me.
