Adobe Flash 19 keeps installing at startup from GPO


  • Hi guys,

    I have a GPO in place for Adobe Flash Player 19 for a recent zero-day event. Unfortunately, every time a reboot happens on a Windows machine, it installs the managed software. I looked at all of our other software GPO's, and I didn't see anything different in those. 

    Any reason why this keeps happening?

  • Hello Mike,

    Thanks for your posting!

    For this issue, I would like to suggest you look into event logs to check is there any errors or warnings regarding to group policy.

    How did you configure the software deployment policy? Did you assign to computer?  Did you have any script running which may remove this software when you shutdown the machine.

    To go deeper about this issue, you may enable gpo logging and look into gpsvc log:

    Hope this helps.
