Path name too long.

Hi all,

Appearantly Macromedia Flash was installed on my pc. I don't think I asked
for it, but....

Anyway, in my documents and settings folder, in sub directory:
Macromedia\Flash player\#SharedObj it has created a whole bunch of sub
directories with weird names such as 22FP49XH and each of these directories
has a sub directory who has itself another sub directory... that goes on and
on until the path name is too long. Windows refuses to delete this directory
sturcture because the path name is too long. Appearantly these Macromedia
programmers had forgotten about this llimitation. Does anyone know how to
get rid of this crap? Uninstalling everything from Macromedia didn't work
either... My virus checker crashes on it, which leaves me kinda vulnerable.

Tia,
Martin

Flash is not normally considered spyware. It is a browser plug-in that gets
install with Internet Explorer's ActiveX system. After the install, it
becomes a "system" file.

Who said anything about spyware?
I just think it's a crappy written program...
