Lates Adobe Reader Update Issue

My Mozilla plug-in page says my Adobe Reader needs updated. Now I have the latest version XI 11.0.08. It does not need updated but this apparently is the Acrobat version which mine is 11.0.8.4. I don't remember having problems updating before but it is asking something new now when you go to update. It was asking for my system with a lot of choices to pick from. All I have is Windows XP so the only 2 things I saw that I figured were for me would have been Windows XP SP3 or 2 (64-bit). I know I have Windows XP SP3 installed so I picked that. Then it asks for language, picked English, then it asked for version. 2 choices, either Reader 11.0.08 English for Windows or 10.1.4 English for Windows. I knew my Adobe XI was 11.0.08 so I picked that. So when I went to install it said I already had it and finished. Still plug-in says it needs updating. Was I supposed to pick 10.1.4 English for Windows instead? They never asked these questions before. So I am at a loss. Technically I have Adobe XI 11.0.08 and this new one is called Adobe Acrobat Reader DC which can work on all devices (of which I have none). So perhaps I don't need to worry about it. I don't know. Thought I'd throw this out there for anyone who could help me. Also my Avast program says my Adobe Reader does not need updated but we're talking about the actual program, not the Acrobat part which I guess is different. Same deal with my Java. Since I have XP the next update was for Version 8 but it said I could go ahead and install but it may not work now with XP. So I haven't bothered doing that and left it with Java 7 update 76. Well thanks if anyone can let me know if I picked the wrong thing or not to worry about it.

I'm just having monitor black out issues right now which are more important that my cousin and I are trying to figure out the cause.

If you have problems with current Shockwave Flash plugin versions then check this:

  • see if there are updates for your graphics drive drivers

https://support.mozilla.org/kb/upgrade-graphics-drivers-use-hardware-acceleration

  • disable protected mode in the Flash plugin (Flash 11.3+ on Windows Vista and later)

  • disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin

I've been finding out that the right hand does not know what's going on with the left hand lately. My Avast tells me all systems are updated even though it doesn't match the plug-in checker.

Yep, that can happen when the 'hands' are on different bodies that may even be on different continents.Hard to synchronize 'hands' if they aren't wi-fi enabled for 'communication' over distances. Also, using an EOL operating system doesn't help matters; as the usage stats drop, the concern for accuracy diminishes, IMHO.

Thanks! I'll look at those sites later. But I'm not a techy person. It's enough I found out how to update plug-ins by myself and a few other things. I've been told it could need a new graphic card/video card whatever it's called. If that's the case I may go looking for a new desktop or heaven forbid a laptop which I don't want.
