Re: Flash Players or lowering the bandwidth?
NO, you are not stupid. The person who gave you that advice is mis-informed.
If I were you, I would just leave the Flash Player alone. Some sites will nag
you to install it if it is not installed.
The Flash Player is installed on your desktop? It is usually installed as a
plug-in for Internet Explorer. Did you get this "Flash Player" from Adobe?
And you should not just "delete" things -- you should UNINSTALL them through
Control Panel (Classic view) > Programs and Features.
