Go to a tech support forum anti-rootkit for Adobe?

Downloaded the latest 10.3 for Firefox and the installer is hidden but permanently running on my machine even after reboot. I can't delete the original file because it's in use. I knew from experience I probably shouldn't download the latest flash installers because Adobe never puts a disclaimer that the latest version that pops up in a search result is just some broken code. But hey, wanted to get a video to play and my flash was outdated so I figured why not.

 

Well now it's the old catch-22 of flash again and I have essentially a virus on my computer, so am I going to have to go to WhatTheTech and get help removing this rootkit or is there any assurance there's a fix in place soon?
