Adobe Flash Player 19 ActiveX & Plugins

Overview

Adobe Flash Player 19 ActiveX & Plugins is a software program developed by Adobe Systems. The most common release is 19.0.0.226, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version.

A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The setup package generally installs about 30 files and is usually about 54.95 MB (57,619,065 bytes). The Adobe Flash Player Update Service (FlashPlayerUpdateService.exe) is the Flash Player auto-update service that runs as a service and a scheduled task and used to automatically check for new releases. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 19% of users of Adobe Flash Player 19 ActiveX & Plugins come from the United States, it is also popular in DZ and IQ.
