Many important updates

  wester john 20:38 12 May 2006

For the last three days when I go to shut down my PC with WINXP +SP2 I get a message to click turn off and install important updates. I duly do this; the last was yesterday evening but this afternoon I get the same message again.
I'm a bit worried about this. I use Zone Alarm and Avast AV.
Anyone any clues please?

Does it show any critical updates missing?

"install important updates" for what?

I already have Belarc Advisor installed. It showed one critical update missing to do with Macromedia Flashplayer but when I tried to install the download it said it wasn't compatible with the version I already had. I don't know what to do next.

Please see click here and the links within it.

It's for older versions of the Flash player.

Thanks for the support. I uninstalled the Flash player I had on then downloaded the latest version and all seems OK.

I had the same problem.
I contacted Microsoft and here is what they had to say:

"If there is any error which has occurred in the flash player, we would request you to contact Macromedia.

You can get the information from the below mentioned link:

For step 2:
Click on Start->Run type %windir%\System32\Macromed\Flash\ and press OK.

Delete the files mentioned in the article:

Thanks for that. I found Flash.ocx and deleted it.
Touch wood, all seems OK now. After shutting down and rebooting I just checked and there is no mention of critical updates!
