Hello everyone,

I have a very minor problem. A few days-week ago I believe I was prompted for flash to update. When it told me I needed to restart, I clicked that I would restart later.

However, I have been left with this "FPInstallMountPoint" mount on my desktop. When I double-click to open, nothing happens. I have tried dragging to the trashcan to eject and ejecting through disk utility to no avail. I went to the adobe website to install the latest version again incase I didn't have it, but it doesn't appear to have changed anything.

Any ideas on how to get rid of this image?

Try
sudo unmount -f /path/to/thingy

the other option is
sudo diskutil unmount /path/to/thingy

Rebooting did the trick. Thanks everyone!
