Publisher's Description

Alternative Flash Player Auto-Updater let's you download and install the Flash Player without having to download Adobe's download manager - it downloads the latest version and asks you whether it should be installed or not. You can choose to let it run at the start of Windows, this way you can be sure that your system will never run an outdated and extremely dangerous version of Flash Player.

Useless software. Full installers available at Adobe Website without need of Adobe Download Manager.

There is enough junk that has to run in the background of any Windows PC without having to resort to further clogging a system up with the likes of this ~

Totally unneeded & 'probably' ad-ware.

This works well, and is a much easier way to install Flash on both IE and Firefox (and others). There is one error message about permissions on start up, but just click past that and it works.

If you don't want the adware, then don't install it.

I really don't understand the use of this when Flash on and off tell You when there is an update.

Useless software. Just download the manual installers directly from Adobe:

This program bundles OpenCandy in a rather underhand way. It is mentioned in the licence agreement, BUT there is no offer to install other software that OC usually does. Also, on first run after install, Opencandy runs again. ESET AV blocks these connections.

Also, the program keeps on asking to load on Windows startup every time it is loaded.

TBH, it is easier to install the Adobe downloader, d/l flash and then delete the 'loader.

This crap gives programming a bad name.

ESET pick this up as a Virus / Malware threat (Below). Good idea, but seems to be Malicious.

Whenever i inadvertedly got the Adobe Manager installed in my pc, i just let it install Flash and then removed the AM afterwards. Quite simple.
Don't need another crap-tility to do that.

But, it's a 4.

Nicely implemented, very small utility. I have always objected to having the Adobe Download Manager installed along with updates to Flash Player, then having to spend time removing it. No more!

it's not BS, outdated versions of flash are a VERY high security risk
