Adobe Flash Player

Recently, a box with the heading Adobe Flash Player pops up and says that a script is causing my computer to be slow. It finally got to where the computer was almost useless as it locked up on every webpage. So I uninstalled the AFP. Now there are so many things that insist that I must have AFP to watch their video. They even have a link for downloading.
If I down load, the problem of script notice returns. I am not knowledgeable about computers. Is there a solution for me?

I dont have the link to the trouble repair method on adobe site but basically its....
look in task manager for Macromedia & Flash Player, end all processes you find there.. Uninstall from control panel....then use the uninstall tool, delete all the folders and files you can find on the hard drive... Restart before installing fresh.

Unistall tool;

delete all folders and files you might find at these locations ;
%appdata%\Adobe\Flash Player
%appdata%\Macromedia\Flash Player

Restart the PC and install fresh...

for ie;

for mozilla;

RE: Adobe Flash Player

It looked complicated as you posted it. I did not find many of the files/programs you suggested. But I did as you suggested to the greatest extent that I could and it all seems to be working now. I am very grateful.
