I am getting an Adobe Flash Player installer pop-up virus.

May 3, 2010 8:29 AM

Whenever I try to open a flash video I get a pop-up asking me to download Adobe Flash Player.  I already have the latest version installed.  when I try to close or cancel it, it locks up the web page and shuts down the browser page.  I'm using IE 7.  Please help.

    Since you have already identified the pop-up as a virus, there is really no point of asking for help here.

    Try to hijack the startmenue for some programs which don`t seem very normal. Maybe the virus was at first on your pc and the adobe reader has nothing to with it. Or Adobe is watching you...

    Hi,

     

    I had the same problem. Drove me nuts! would kick me out of my email everytime. The only solution I found was to delete adobe flash. Now my internet works but I dont have adobe flash.  I have not tried to download flash again but I think I may give it a try.

    Hi, if you are still having problems, I would use one or both of these scanners:

     

    http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

     

    http://www.eset.com/onlinescan/

     

     

    I'm not sure if eset removes what they find or not, but I know Malwarebytes does.

     

     

     

    Hope it helps,

    Hi, well that does not sound good at all. Here is the number for Microsoft's security line. 1-866-PC Safety.

     

     

     

     

    Hope that will help solve your problem.

     

     

    Thanks,
