Unfortunately, these updaters are not always smart enough to know whether or not the user has Admin rights.
In a very small environment, this may not be a problem since users may  have Admin rights; however, in a larger environment, this can generate a lot of unnecessary support requests when a user that doesn’t have Admin rights gets a UAC prompt that wants Admin credentials…

You'll be a lot safer, because a large chunk of the malware attacking web browsers worldwide is dependent on Flash Player flaws.
