    Want to disable adobe flash player


    WIN 8 -
    i tried to find the controls/settings for Adobe Flash Player - don't want all those animated ads running - does my browser (Google Chrome) affect that or Internet Explorer (which is now loading as MSN and i can't seem to change that-happened after i accidentally removed IE from taskbar - now when loaded from ''tiles' it loads MSN) anyway .. i was able to go to CP/downloads & saw i did 'disable' Adobe Player but the adds still run. Is there more than one type of ''adobe'' ? thanks so much

    Adobe Shockwave or any other Adobe app might reside in Add-ons.
    Click on Tools...cog top right hand corner....click on Manage Add-ons.
    You can disable them there.
