How to remove McAfee without dropping my flash player IE9 operability

I just got a brand new Inspiron 5520 with bundled software.

Whenever I tried to delete McAfee in order to use a different antivirus Soft, my FlashDrive IE9 unresponsive.

Has anyone encountered the same problem? If yes what should I do about this problem of uninstalling?

Thank you!


Hi Eki_fils,

I agree with ky331, it seems rather strange that the uninstallation of McAfee would affect somehow Flash Player .


Anyway, try this:

Download and run MCPR.exe

  • Download the tool.
  • Click Saveand save the file in the folder of downloads on your computer.
  • Navigate to the folder where the file was saved.
  • Ensure that all McAfee Windows are closed, as well as all other running programs such as browsers, instant messaging, etc.
  • Right-click MCPR.exe and select run as administrator.
  • When you see the user account control dialog box, click Yes.
  • The McAfee software removal screen, click Next.
  • In the contract (EULA) dialog box, click next to accept the contract.
  • When you are prompted, type the Captcha information to validate the security of applications, and then click Next.
  • When you see the message CleanUp successful, restart your computer. Your McAfee product is not completely removed after reboot.


If you are having problems with Flash Player in Internet Explorer after you complete the steps above, please re - download Flash Player from the link in the post above ky331 and save in your downloads folder.

  • Close all running programs.
  • Double-click your Flash Player file downloaded to re - install.

  • How to upgrade the version of Adobe Flash Player on my new Samsung Smart TV

    How to upgrade the version of Adobe Flash Player on my new Samsung Smart TV?

    I just bought a Samsung Smart TV. When I try to watch ESPN3, I get the message: insufficient Flash drive requirements.

    Click to update provides the following information:

    Adobe Flash Player version

    Your system: 32-bit Linux, Safari.

    NOTE: Adobe Flash Player 11.2 will be the last version of target Linux as a supported platform. Adobe will continue to provide backports of security Flash Player for Linux 11.2.

    Select Version to download:

    YUM for Linux (YUM)

    . for other Linux tar.gz

    for other Linux .rpm

    APT for UBUNTU 10.4.

    When I select the first 3 options of Linux, I get the message: IMPOSSIBLE TO DOWNLOAD.  When I select APT, I get the message SERVER NOT FOUND.


    As I mentioned earlier in this thread (15,17 and 37 positions), doesn't matter which drive Flash updates for Smart TV, if any, would come from the manufacturer, Adobe and certainly not some random site asking you to fill out a questionnaire before give you a file.  Please contact your support of manufacturer of Smart TVs.

    Please, please, please, do NOT go to some random website that asks you to fill out a questionnaire to get a file.  If you happen to get a file, it will likely contain a virus, malware, etc..  Adobe, or any legitimate manufacture, will display a file on some random site and ask you to complete the questionnaire in order to obtain the file.  It just opens your system to all kinds of bad things.  Please do not.

    From Windows 8, Microsoft integrates Flash Player in Internet Explorer and all updates are distributed by Microsoft, no Adobe.

    In addition to checking that Flash Player is enabled, please ensure that the ActiveX filtering is disabled, see difficulty ActiveX in Flash Player in Internet Explorer issues.

    Today is patch Tuesday, which means that Microsoft will come out all sorts of updates, including an update to Flash Player for IE.  I don't know when they're going to live, because the update has not yet posted to Microsoft Security Advisory 2755801.  You can check this page later today, or run Windows Update later today or tomorrow to install updates.



  • How to download the latest version of Flash Player

    And now a REALLY fundamental question:

    I am trying to download the latest version of the Flash player.

    I go to what looks like the appropriate Adobe page (, and there is a link 'Install now', which I click. Apparently, but it's a misleading link, it just goes to a page full of ads Adobe peddling subscriptions for the rental of various Adobe products. There is a "Adobe Flash Player" link on this page under the "Downloads" section, but it just goes back to the previous page. (Thanks, Adobe).

    Anyone knows how to go beyond the cheezy to the real download shilling?

    This is the good link and it works fine for me without any redirection. can you check it again?


  • How to install an archived file of Flash Player?

    I want to install Flash player on a x 86 WinXP SP3, IE8.  I just updated to FP 11.4 x because I had problems of audio-video synchronization on (this was suggested by Hulu Support).

    Which did not help the cause, so that they now want me to downgrade to FP 10.3 x.  I hope this is the right version (archived) on my desktop, I downloaded and unzipped in a folder.  Whenever I click on the install/uninstall program, a window opens and tells me that I need to get the latest version of the Flash player and does not install files to archive.

    Nice catch-22 situation.

    Not the case on the site Adobe is there simple instructions on how to do (actually install a file to archive uncompressed and operate properly).

    If I do a search, nothing appears.

    Who created this site to be if not friendly must have slapped hands, removed computer rights and give an Etch-A-Sketch instead.


    Try here,
