    Older Dell does not tell us much. PC or notebook? What is the model number? What plugin?

    Note that Adobe Flash and Adobe Shockwave are two different things.

    I would totally uninstall them as per instructions, reboot to ensure all hooks are cleared, then install them again.

    Uninstall Flash Player
    Uninstall ShockwavePlayer

    Ok in my plug-ins it has:
    Adobe Flash Player version 17.0.0.169
    Shockwave Flash 17.0r0
    so I thought it was the same but I will uninstall them

    The adobe flash player won't uninstall,I'm using chrome.Is there a deep clean progam I can use for things that may have been left behind after uninstalling programs,etc.I only have 23.7GB used with 50.7GB left cause I try not to download too many programs but my computer is really acting up.I mainly use it to look things up cause I can't download & play movies on here.
