WebHarvy crashes after installing the latest Windows update for Adobe Flash

Microsoft released a new security update for Adobe Flash Player for Internet Explorer (IE) a few days back (Dec 29, 2015). This update has caused many software (including Skype – see Skype Crash) to crash. See http://borncity.com/win/2015/12/30/windows-10-flash-update-kb3132372-issues/ for a list of other software titles affected due to this update.

Solution ?

The solution to this problem is to uninstall the security update – KB3132372. See How to remove updates.
Meanwhile we will try if we can update WebHarvy to overcome this issue. We are also hoping that there will be another security update from Microsoft which solves this problem since many software titles including their own Skype seems to be affected.
