Re: Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.262
Not everyone had issues with Flash 11.3, but enough people did. My Win 7 Pro x64 desktop did not work till now, my Win 7 Pro laptop had no issues with 11.3 but I updated it also. My desktop has an Nvidia GPU and my laptop ATI.
My son's Win 7 starter netbook also had issues with Flash 11.3 and Firefox. Also none of my XP PC's had any issues with 11.3.
Desktop Win 7 x64 Emsisoft Anti Malware v6.6, Laptop Win 7 x64 & Desktop XP Pro Emsisoft Anti Malware v6.6 & Online Armor Premium v5.5, Netbook Win 7 Starter and Netbook XP Home Avast 7, MBAM and Hitman Pro used on-demand only.
> Weren't these issues with 64 bit OS only due to the protected mode now included with Flash?
No, it was Low Integrity, on both 32 & 64 OS's.
> I don't think protected mode runs on XP.
Most likely right on that, in particular on x86.
But again, it would be Low Integrity, & Adobe did not add that feature to Flash for XP systems.
> Does it run under vista/win7 32 bit?
Yes, Low Integrity would run on Vista & up OS's.
Yes, you're right, they do call it "Protected Mode". (I was thinking more of Windows "Protected Mode.")
