Another reason to hate Adobe Flash… their updates.

I’m not able to be alone in this… I’m damn near pleading with adobe here on this one. Please stop with these obtuse update Windows. They’re coming out like every week or so and the update process is so obtuse; I nearly can’t stand it. Are you putting efforts in to give me another reason …
