I'm running Firefox 26 and am trying to install Flash version 11.9.900.152. I keep getting this Error: Application currently in use and it fails to complete the install.

I went to Adobe and found uninstall instructions and in the process of trying to uninstall Flash, I'm trying to delete all the files in the c:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash folder. I can get them all except: NPSWF32_11_9_900_152.dll, which produces the following error: the file is open in plugin container for Firefox

How do I get this stopped so that I can update to the latest version of Flash? This is so darned frustrating.

click CTRL + ALT + Delete to open Windows Task Manager and in Processes tab look for process "plugin-container.exe", right click on it and click end process. That should solve error.
