I have Downloaded Flash Player 11 and I hear radio commercials. I uninstalled it and the commercials went away. I reinstalled and they commercials came back. I have downloaded this from several different sites and I get the same commercials. How do I get rid of the commercials? I wan to us flash player because frankly I am tired of the pop up coming every time I click on a video. Any help getting rid of the Commercials would be greatly appreciated.
What is your operating system, version & edition?
What is your web browser?
Download Flash Player only from the Adobe.com website, not from 3rd-party download sites.

Can you please explain what exactly you are doing when you hear these commercials?
Does it happen when you run the installer?
Does it happen when you use any browser? If so, what is the URL where this is occurring?
Does it happen when you do nothing?
Is it possible that your system is infected with malware? (I am asking because I have never heard of such a thing happening.)
I have been on youtube and break.com to watch a video a friend sent. I heard something about "mania tv".Sometimes they are local commercials to my area for a local car dealership, there were t mobile commercials as well. When I have uninstalled flash player there were no more commercials. When I reinstalled the commercials came back. When I closed all the browsers the commercials were still on. I ra a virus scan with McAfee Total protection and there were no virus'. I was looking on McAfee just now and it says protects against virus and spayware but I didn't see anything about Malware. What is that?
Malware is a general term for any bad stuff; viruses, troyans, spyware, etc.
Sorry, I have no idea about your radio issues - I have never heard of such a thing. So this is happening even if nothing is running on your computer? Can you check with the Task Manager (Processes tab) if you can see anything that could be doing that?
