PROBLEM RESOLVED, see post #3 Hello all.... I need to "manually remove" Adobe flash from a 2010 MacBook Pro running 10.6.8. Background: I'm trying to update flash, and the updater "hangs in the dock" while trying to load. Only option is to force-quit. I tried to UN-install flash using the Adobe UNinstaller, but that (too) hangs while trying to load (same as the installer). Thus: Can't update flash. Can't uninstall flash (at least using the "official" uninstaller). (Aside: I tried to create an entirely new administrative user account, and update that way -- exact same problems) What I'd like to do: I'd like to -manually remove- all the components of flash, and then attempt a "clean install". Question: Where can I -find- all the components of flash to remove, and how are they named?
