    Adobe Crash Player is a backdoor to access webcam and microphone. :blink:

    Yes OP has been a member since Sep 2006, so starting a thread like this after being a member for so long is rather weird. :blink:

    yeah, maybe CCleaner or BleachBit. i thought maybe it was just Adobe's standard practice.
    good to know i don't have to put up with that

    edit: eh, "Flash Player Settings" box is unchecked on both. i assume that's the .sol cookie.
    Bleachbit has a box for just "Flash cookies" that i'll uncheck.
