Flash Player 11 Update for Windows Vista

Dec 22, 2011 2:29 PM

Tags: #vista #virus #flash_player_11

I have automatic updates set up on my HP, which runs Windows Vista.  When the auto-update came up, my McAfee anti-spyware also came up, asking if I wanted to run it [because it wasn't sure about it, I guess].

 

I said yes, clicked yes for the update (I believe it's for Flash Player 11) and as soon as it finished installation, McAfee told me it had found & deleted a trojan.

 

And then something for "Microsoft Vista Antispyware 2012" came up, which I know is an actual virus.

 

 

Has anyone else had this problem on a PC? Was it coincidence that it happened with the Flash update or was it attached to Flash?
