Adobe provides a variety of products and software, including Flash Player, which enhances your Web browsing experience. Adobe also has an Flash Player Updater that prompts you of available updates when connected to the Internet. RunOnce, on the other hand, is a bug in Internet Explorer's Web browser. Instead of your designated home page, the RunOnce prompt will appear whenever you launch Internet Explorer. Fortunately, you can remove each of these nuisances separately.
