    we all know the internal memory on our desire is pure crap, and we must be selective about apps and games. so my latest adobe flash update has taken it's space up to 17.37MB!! others include contacts (11.42Mb), maps (10.91Mb) fbook (6.54) and so on. I frequently clear cache and data but still struggle to keep my desire from being swamped by the constantly expanding 'big daddy apps'. these are the apps which we can't live without right..?

    anybody know why adobe is ballooning faster than the western worlds waistlines?
    cheers

    YES, please tell me to handle this!
    This morning, all of a sudden I see the storage on my HTC Desire is full again. It has downloaded this Adobe update and left no room on my phone. I am pretty sure I turned off all automatic downloads and upgrades, but I do it again and remove the update. 2 minutes later it downloads the same upgrade again!
    One thing is that it's jamming my phone, but it is also costing me plenty of MB! How to stop this?!?!?
    And how come HTC isn't giving us any hints and tricks to keep our phone operating? I have 20 MB of contacts and no idea why.

    I also need to uninstall the Adobe flash updated on my HTC Desire for space reasons, but cannot prevent it automatically updating again. Any tips gratefully received!

    I even sendt an e-mail to the adress provided in the app. Haven't heard anything yet, surprise surprise...
    Tried to find something about this in Adobe's own forums, but couldn't fin anything.

    The real issue is the seemingly forced updating which I think is a market issue.

    I keep getting updates to google voice, maps and God knows what else.

    I'm seriously thinking of quitting my contract to get a phone that I can actually use properly.

    unfortunately Adobe seem to be catering for the more advanced smartphones that have oodles of memory / space and not the generation that has limited space. I managed to uninstall the update and have ticked the box "Automatically Update" in the market place option and thus far have not had another install.

    You can stop the annoyance by disabling the automatic update:
    1. Remove the update:
    - Start the Settings app
    - Select "Applications"
    - Select "Manage applications"
    - Select "Adobe Flash"
    - Select "Uninstall updates"
    - Accept the warnings, to continue the uninstall process

    2. Disable update:
    - Start the Market app
    -Press menu button, select My Apps
    -Select Adobe Flash Player
    -Remove the checkmark in "Allow automatic updating"
    -Press "Home".

    It seems, however, that Adobe/Google re-insert the automatic update each time a new update version is available, so you have to repeat the sequence.
