    KB923789 Security Update for Flash Player Won't Install

    I've tried twice and this update fails to install properly. I've searched
    the Find Solutions database for kb923789 and received no results.

    The only informatin I cen get as to what went wrong is Error Code 0x643.

    I too have tried three times and this update fails to install. .

    All you provide is Error Code 0x643 which is no help to me.

    I am also getting this failed message. i have also tried about three times.

    The same problem I had, no solution found till now, Edo

    Have any of you installed the IE7 update? I haven't yet.

    Go to Adobe and update Flash Player there -
    http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer/

    Being as my flash player is up to date as of yesterday, I guess that's
    why Window's update didn't show KB923789 when I went there.

    Been there, done that. Several times.
    I've uninstalled and reinstalled Flash - problem still exists: Error code:
    0x643
    I've attempted to install the update many multiple times over a period of
    weeks with no luck.

    Window IE7 won't run some website Flash programs.
    (However, FireFox will run them...but with occasional warnings.)

    What next?

    From what I have read it seems this update is for users of IE? I use firefox and am also getting the "failed" result. Should I just not bother since I use firefox? Thnx.

    Microsoft Security Bulletin MS06-069
    Vulnerabilities in Macromedia Flash Player from Adobe Could Allow Remote
    Code Execution (923789)
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sec.../ms06-069.mspx

    That's a *really* old update.
    Instead, go here and see what Version is installed in Firefox:
    http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/
    IF Shockwave is installed, the system will be prompted to update to the
    latest Version if it's an earlier release.
    The page will also show which Version of Flash Player is installed in
    Firefox but it won't automatically prompt to update older, vulnerable
    versions.

    As long as IE is *never* used to view flash content, then the system
    won't be exploited by the vulnerability described in MS06-069.

    Frankly speaking, you can ignore KB923789 and run the FP uninstaller to
    remove any chance of exploitation using IE

    NOTE: This will remove Adobe Flash Player from all browsers on the system

    Then download and install the standalone FP installer for Firefox:
    http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

    *** Beware of any toolbars that will try to sneak onto the system at the
    beginning of the installation process ***
