Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller 15
Easily uninstall all copies of Flash on your PC

The Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller is a tiny portable tool which will quickly remove all copies of Flash from every browser on your PC.

For the program to work properly you must first close every application which is currently using Flash, though. And that can be a problem, as there may be more than you think. So we would shut down everything non-critical, just to be safe: every regular application which might be running, and everything in your system tray which isn't security related.

With that done, though, everything else is relatively straightforward. Just launch the program, click Uninstall, and watch. A progress bar will show what's happening, and within a few seconds you should see a message "Adobe Flash Player uninstalled successfully". Click "Done", and the program will close.

And if you want to be thorough, you should now probably remove any remaining Flash-related files and folders. Hold down the Windows key and press R to launch the Run box, copy and paste the path \Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash there, click OK to open that folder, and delete all the files and folders there.

Repeat the process to delete the contents of the folders \Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash, %appdata%\Adobe\Flash Player and %appdata%\Macromedia\Flash Player.

And when you're happy, reboot your PC and Flash should now have disappeared. Although if you'd like to be sure, then it may be wise to visit Adobe's online Flash version checker. If it shows you a blank box, rather than a version number, than all is well. And if you want to reinstall Flash at some later date then the same page explains precisely what you need to do.

Verdict:

We're not quite sure why it leaves you to clean up the various Flash "temporary" files and folders, but otherwise the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller is certainly very easy to use

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
