    Flash 12.0.0.44 caused major issues here with crashing IE for us and were in midst of rolling it back now, so that can take a jump for now.

    I would love to see flash die too, it's horrible to patch and keep on top of at times, same for IE for me, it's such a horrible and cumbersome browser compared to chrome/mozilla

    Upgrade to Windows 8.1 and you won't have to worry about Flash Player updates ever again since IE includes its own copy of the plug-in (like Chrome).

    No, then you just need to worry about IE updates keeping up, and not breaking anything

    That's why you should have two browsers installed.

    I run 8.1 on my office and a home machine and love it, I realise flash seems a lot more stable on 8.1, unfortunately though we use seven here and ie10 for the workstations, I don't fancy putting people through metro because of the stupid upheaval and the amount of hassle it would generate because of the start menu differences.

    If you are daring you can allow the built in silent flash updater. But runs as system account and will need internet access. Plus doesn't give you a chance to test.

    Local Update Publisher makes this a lot easier to deploy and control, but it is ridiculous how often it needs to be updated. Same as Java - which I only install where absolutely required.
