To avoid crashes and un-secure add-ons, keep your Flash and Java updated.

These instructions are as of 10/27/14 and thanks to Batty.


Update Flash Player to avoid FiestaHacker Exploit kit breach here: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/

Install from drop down menu for ALL browsers you use- after 1st install you can back page to install the next one 9S0

You do not need  to un-install unless Flash Player is not working at all, which means it is corrupted.


You do not want Java 8.25, it is an unsecure Beta version, yet Oracle has put it on their site early. If you have it, you should un-install it from your add/remove programs in your Control Panel

Un-installing Java 8 and rebooting (hard reboot not just restart: start menu>shut down) is important

Next,  go to http://www.java.com/en/download/manual_java7.jsp and download the offline version 32 bot for most people, 64 bit only for users of 64 bit browsers, regardless of OS bit version.

This is for Java 7, update 71.

Do not install Java while online go off the Internets all together. Go to your Download folder and look for http://prntscr.com/50bzjx double click to install (will be similar for MAC OSX instead of Windows

Java install will likely cause security warnings first time you use it for something, click allow and remember to stop them.

Next big Java release should be Java 8 in spring 2015, unless this version gets hacked and Oracle has to patch it again, which is likely, lol.

Like a Star @ heaven  Like a Star @ heaven Reboot after installations of Flash or Java to ensure it hard sets in system, this means full shut down, not just a re-start. Hard reboot is always best after installing or updating anything on your computer. start menu>shut down Like a Star @ heaven  Like a Star @ heaven
