    flash player


    I hope this is the right place to put this question. may sound like a silly question to you guys that grew up with computers.,
    but i'm only asking, the only silly question is the one that is never ask.


    now I have a 64 bit system here but when I went into the "all control panel items" I found I have something called

    flash player-(32 bit)


    now should I replace it with the 64 bit? if so, can I do so without the junk that comes with PC downloads? if so, where do I go? or should I just leave it alone. any advice you have would be great.

    Win 8 64-bit


    I'd leave it alone because Flash Player for Internet Explorer comes built into Windows now and is updated through Windows Update. I'm not sure why it shows as "(32-bit)" in the Control Panel either, I guess someone forgot to rename it, but I permanently run the 64-bit version of Internet Explorer Desktop and the Flash Plugin also runs in 64-bit mode as well.

    The 32-bit flash player plug-in is for your 32-bit browser. Although your operating system is 64-bit, it can and do run 32-bit programs and apps. The plug-in installer/updater puts both into the system. I use exclusively a 64-bit browser. Yet I have the 32-bit plug-in in the control panel.
