Updates 11/25/15 - Flash; CCleaner 5.0

Adobe Flash Player 15 has been updated to 15.0.0.239

Notes as of this writing:

1) there is no documentation available [yet].  SEE BELOW

2) The download links we usually cite here for direct downloads (with no bundled junk) are still offering the previous build, x.223.   I don't know if there's just a delay in Adobe updating these, or if it represents a change in their philosophy. SEE BELOW

3) If you insist on downloading these updates immediately, they can be obtained from https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ ; however, be advised that going through this site, you will be offered unnecessary bundled software (Google CHROME, Google Toolbar for IE, McAfee Security Scan Plus utility):  be sure to UNcheck these "Optional" Offers [unless you actually want them].

RE: Updates 11/25/15 - Flash

Speed,

1) Neither of those files/versions are for the newly-released Flash:   15.0.0.239

2) I *DO* have links that point to a "no junk / no toolbar" installer (which in fact, is not packaged as an achive/zip file, and so is easier to work with for most people)... moreover, it's much smaller than the downloads you cited --- between 16.5 to17 MB.   Offering no junk wasn't the issue... but as noted in my first post, the links I'm aware of are still offering 15.0.0.223.

Either be careful to UNcheck any pre-checked offers for bundled programs/toolbars (unless you really want them)... or else, wait a few days until the SLIM build is released.

RE: Updates 11/25/15 - Flash; CCleaner 5.0

Just downloaded the new version of ccleaner and told Win 7 to save the file.

The file saved was named ccsetup500_exe which obviously isn't the name of an executable. I didn't notice the error until I double-clicked it and Windows asked what app I wanted to open that file. I changed it to .exe and it installed.

As a test, I had their site download it again and it's named _exe again so it's an error on their end.

DUH!

RE: Updates 11/25/15 - Flash; CCleaner 5.0

Ron,

that's interesting:   I downloaded the file twice --- once to a primary Win7 system, and once to an XP-Mode Virtual Machine (on the Win7 system) --- and had no such problem.

Hope you can see this (or click jpg to open in full window).

I should mention that I was downloading the free version of ccleaner, not the paid version. So maybe that's the difference..??
