My Adobe Needs To Be Updated

Do I still need Adobe or java on my Computer?

They won't harm your PC, but you need them for games, and videos.

Java runs games. If your going to play certain browser games, Java is needed. If you want to watch videos on youtube or something, you need Adobe Flash player. Adobe Shockwave is needed for all games.

Uninstalling them will not harm your computer, but you might need them in the future. If you don't play games or watch videos, so go ahead and remove them.

You can always reinstall them off the Java or Adobe website. Just Google adobe flash or java or adobe shockwave.

Why does Adobe Reader need to update so often?

Updating a software frequently shows the interest of the company in delivering good results for the users. Adobe being the leader in the industry has too much of public demands and they have to make too many major and minor additions to the software every now and then. I ve seen too much of public demands about feature, if you check any question answer site, you will find a lot of questions concerning adobe like 'can I do ABC function with adobe reader?' or 'Can I do this and this with PDF files?'. All this adds to the responsibilities of adobe who are the leaders of the industry, so they have to update them softwares, and you frequently get the message if you want to update the software or not. But since some people find it a bit annoying thats why what the adobe alternative like ClassicPDF editor etc do is that they announce the updates on their websites only rather than to the users who are using it. It helps in avoid the problem that people faces by getting update messages again and again.So the simple reason for the frequent updates is the popular demand which force them to update the software frequently to keep it up to the popular industry demand.

Why do I have to go to a website to update Adobe Flash player?

If you are talking about non-Adobe websites that redirect you to the download page then it is the ignorance or the incompentence of the people who built that site that makes you go to the Adobe site since they have not implemented the Express Install feature that is available since Flash Player 6: http://livedocs.adobe.com/flex/3...On the other hand the reason that you see that version warning in the first place is since you probably have not activated the automatic Flash player background updater in your system: Introducing Adobe Flash Player Background Updater for Windows
