Adobe Flash Will Not Uninstall While TeamViewer is Running

I am running TeamViewer 12, while the client is version 11 (installed 2 days ago).

While attempting to uninstall Adobe Flash Player on the remote Win7 Dell PC, I immediately received this error screen:

Flash Player Uninstall - TeamViewer Error Message.png

I have not encountered this issue before, but did a little research and found a page (on a reputible site) that describes a malware-laden Adobe Flash/Teamviewer exploit:

The client's Win7 PC is just a week old, but has been online without an anti-virus program, and has had no Win7 Updates installed yet.

The new Dell PC was delivered with Win7 installed, and came with the Win10 upgrade DVD. Upgrading the OS is likely, but will not be addressed until January.

TeamViewer Support indicated that the Adobe Flash Player error has been reported, and is currently being worked on, but I was able to find a single reference to the problem I encountered online (Google Search).

 Is there anyone here that has encountered this error?

 

Regards,

Truman
