Locate and delete the FlashPlayerCPLApp.cpl in the System32 folder (SysWow64 for 64bit systems).

Also delete the following registry key:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Control Panel\Extended Properties\{2CA4F306-B280-4ab2-B5E1-1DFA3583F046}]

Or for 64bit

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Control Panel\Extended Properties\{2CA4F306-B280-4ab2-B5E1-1DFA3583F046}]

That removes the applet completely.

Or you could use Group Policy to hide the applet from showing in the Control Panel, but this doesn't disable able its use.

Please note, that there is an issue with using the mms.cfg (AutoUpdateDisable=1) method to disable automatic update notifications and what's seen in the Flash applet and the web-based Settings Manager. It works as expected but doesn't display the correct result which would be to disable/grey out the update selections.

A bug report has been submitted to Adobe and it's found at the following URL:
