You have to have the free Adobe flash player in order to be able to view most of the sites at the internet. These sites that use flash media player are not able to open in Internet Explorer without the flash player plug in. You can check at various sites (http://www.877.gr, http://www.bestradio.gr, http://www.vfm883.gr)

Adobe Flash is used to display Flash animation or video content. Example, if you were to goto http://www.homestarrunner.com, you wouldn't be able to view that page without the Adobe Flash Player. Other websites like Facebook require Flash to play games. Of course your computer doesn't need Flash to work properly. If you don't intend to browse the Internet, you could do without it.
There are a few alternatives to Adobe Flash if you want to use something else. Here's a list of alternatives:

If you just have no use for it and want to uninstall it, you can go to the Control Panel, select Programs and Features, right click on Adobe Flash Player and uninstall it.

Please visit www.adobe.com, in the right side of the window click on Adobe flash player and you can download the latest player, if you have it the window will clearly specify the same.

You don't need it for Windows to run, but without Flash many (most) websites won't display properly. Flash animation is a part of almost every site now. So while it's not absolutely necessary, you probably should install it.

Only if you want to use a lot of web content, but otherwise, no, it's not absolutely necessary.

The directions and links to files that you need to remove it are on the link below (click it):

My new packard Bell Onetwo M D6321 64 bit system will not function with Adobe Flash Player 10 Active X. Im using internet explorer (64 bit) as my browser. Adobe website keeps leading round and round...


The component is named 'ActiveX'.
The version of the Adobe Flash Player was 9-point-something, but now
the current version of the Adobe Flash Player is 10-point-something.

So, use Add/Remove Programs to _remove_ Adobe Flash Player.
Restart your computer.
Access: http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
and allow the ActiveX control downloaded from Adobe to be installed.
