Adobe has pulled a fast one with their latest Flash Player update. Just after restarting my computer, I received a notification about an update being available. The update prompt window says it “takes less than a minute over broadband” and that “no restart is required”. That’s wrong. While the program does not incessantly prompt to restart (like Windows Update does), or simply restart when you click “Finish” (like Norton AntiVirus’ updater often does), it pops up and says that “The new version will be available after you restart your computer.” Adobe needs to rethink their text here.
Restart or Not Restart?
