Windows 8 comes with built-in Adobe Flash!

And why the f*** is this thing installed INSIDE the Windows system folder? It is just a DLL. WHY does it need administrator right in order to show come YouTube video?
I don't want Flash and don't want to install it in my system. Why is the OS forcing me to install Flash? WHAT THE F***?
I want a CLEAN OS where I choose what to be in it or not. IT IS MY PC!
Windows 8 is not an OS. It is an abomination.

By the way, I use Opera and flash doesn't need to be installed in order to work. I only use the DLL-file and put it inside opera ( I manually update it ) so this way, flash dll has no admin rights. ONE DLL.
EDIT: (OT, but can you believe for only ONE dll, Adobe asks administrator rights to your system? *lol*)

Warning: The following commands will effectively "disable" Flash, after trying to view the test page in IE, IE and Explorer.exe crashed. So this is just the tip of the iceberg it would appear. Test it in a VM if you'd like, I wouldn't recommend it on your actual computer.

It seems that DISM replaced the pkmgr. Do you happen to have any more specifics how to actually remove flash from the Windows install?
You can use DISM/pkmgr to kill the Flash package and next use the official flash installer (Win7 compatibilty Mode) to setup a newer flash version.
EDIT: Hm... weekend read I guess:
