    I'm using the 32bit version built into Chrome. No issues so far.

    No issues with the 64bit flash 11 either, so not entirely sure what he meant.

    Using the 64bit Flash player in IE9 was okay until I tried to play back a video from TSN.ca. I forget exactly the error, but a restart was required with faulting file: ntdll.dll

    Is the 64-bit stable IE-only?

    The problem I have with flash is that I downloaded the update today. It downloaded the web installer which downloaded two applications.
    1. Adobe flash
    2. Downloaded and installed Mcafee security scan plus and installed it without any user intervention choices.

    Why did it install Mcafee? I already got a AV and I dont need any checkers or anything else installed and ontop of it theres no option to select or deselect it. It gets installed and thats that
    Anyone noticed this?

    All browsers, but there is no flash 11 stable.

    It's been installing McAfee for a long time, are you sure you didn't miss the step to disable it?

    Good practice is to wait until the good people at Wilders post a new release, they will post direct links to executable installers. Check out the updates forum.

    Wouldn't it be nice if this became a trend and Flash stopped being horrible insecure?
