When you have installed Flasplayer there is an uninstaller in the Utilities folder. You should use that and nothing else to uninstall Flasplayer.
Follow Dominic's instructions and you will have the newest Flasplayer installed.

First of all, I´ve never installed this crap. Flash has the sole purpose of littering my computer with all sorts of marketig garbage. Now it showed up out of the blue, embedding spams in my youtube videos. When I right-click the ads, it shows "About Adobe Flash Player version xxx". I click on Adobe and it takes to their website, where it detects: You have version 11,8,800,97 installed.
- I followed Dominc´s + all above instructions step by step, all worked fine until the uninstall was concluded. I went to the Library, but could NEVER find what I was supposed to delete. I found the folder Internet plugin, the both Flash files were not there.
- After that the the ads keep popping up in my youtbe videos.
- Adobe website keeps giving me the message: You have version 11,8,800,97 installed.
- I restarted the computer, all the same results: Adobe detects my installation + ads popping up on youtube.
What happened to Apple?! It´s like Windows now infecting and hijacking computers? Please help me. If I can´t solve it here I´ll have to go to an Apple store, send it to repair.

I´m using Google Chrome, last version, and exactly because it doesn´t requiere Adobe Flash player to play videos. Last time I used Flash (with Safari) it was a nightmare, with pop up windows forcing me to update. It´s not happening now though.

wait a moment, you are highjacking this thread, while we are not sure the issue of supermomish has been cleared. Your issue is not the same as the supermomish issue: start a new thread please.
@supermomish: has your issue been solved?

I´m not hijacking the thread and I´m waiting for @supermomish to have her issue solved so I can solve mine. The issue is the same: Flash won´t uninstall, each one in a different way. I´ll open another thread though anyway.

Chrome is bundled with it's own version of Flash. You get it whether you realize it or not.
Other browsers use the plugin in the Internet Plugins folder. That's why you need to start your own posting.
