Re: Users take their time over Java and Flash updates

True. Lately, Java hasn't been too much of a troublemaker with breaking systems or browsers. Usually Java breaks itself to a point where you have to use the Windows Installer Clean-up tool or Revo Uninstaller to take it out of the system rather than the traditional uninstaller. I've been finding Flash has been breaking browsers left and right. Making IE hang and fail to load pages, locking up Firefox and making it crash out on exit, and consuming an unneeded amount of RAM. Most of the issues I've seen have been resolved by doing a full uninstall and re-install, but normally Adobe Updates don't break software like that according to my own experience.
