I was playing Facebook Games. I can no longer access them because they want me to update FLASH. I tried and my computer refuses to load FLASH because it is a "plug-in". I checked my program list and can't find FLASH. Is this a necessary program? What does it do? Can it harm my computer? I am a senior with limited savey but a enjoy my laptop computer. Can someone help?
