Popup notice to download Flash Player Pro

Mar 19, 2013 8:15 AM

I keep getting the following pop-up message when I go to use something requiring the Flash Player. The message starts with text I am unable to copy. The following text is the only part of the message I was able to copy.  I'm afraid to download because I wiped out a previous computer hard drive by downloading what I thought was legitimate Adobe.  I seem to have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player and Google chrome purportedly updates as needed.  Has anyone else received the following popup message? Is it legitimate?
