    There is an option to set the "Required Flash Version" (when you build a Flash project).
    I wouldn't be surprised if some of these messages are caused by people setting that option incorrectly.

    Yah, but I'm positive the popup I saw had nothing to do with Flash and everything to do with a virus.

    I wonder if there are any legitimate pop-ups about plugins?

    If there are, they propagate through the Tray. Real Adobe upgrades will always show you an icon in the Tray when they are ready to be installed. Always tell it to notify you and not download it automatically.

    Well, since SFC did not work, try DISM:

    I don't pay any attention to website plugin pop-ups.

    Since I am almost always on the latest version of Flash, I just ignore any site that claims that I need to update Flash.

    If a site doesn't work, I don't need to see it and I won't be back.

    Lol. Happens a lot!

    Not much help, but, clutching at straws, have you tried opening the viewer and right clicking, then having a look at a couple of the options. The first might be helpful, "Pictures Library"
    Other than that, I can see I have had, over the period, an update for the viewer. That could also be contributing to the problem if you haven't installed it??
