Which link are you using to download Flash?
ive tried both links including the direct one
Moving this discussion to the Installing Flash Player forum. If you have already tried downloading from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ then please check to see if there is updates available for your anti-virus software.

I would suggest running a malware scanner (http://www.malwarebytes.org/) on your system as it's possible something is overriding this download. As far as our executables go, they are clean and safe to install. I've confirmed this by running them through 3 different virus scanners just now.
it seems to be that this is happening on all items i try to download as
i tried to update my windows and the same thing happened but im not
sure what i can do about it
You might want to try another antivirus vendor to see if this is isolated to AVG
no its not ive been in contact with avg
I have AVG 2013.0.2805 installed, and I have no problems downloading any Flash Player installers.
What is your AVG version?
i had avg 2013 which i uninstalled and now i cant re-install it because
im getting the same security message when i download anything from the
internet, it installes to 100% until it gets to checking security
status then i get the message 'contained a virus and was deleted',
could this be something on my internet security settings, i get the
same message when i try to install adobe flash and update windows
hi not sure if you got my last email as have had no reply, my avg was
2013 which i have uninstalled and now i cant reinstall due to the fact
im having trouble with downloading flash player and anything else from
the net with the same problem, starts to download to 100% then gets to
security check and comes back with contained a virus and was deleted so
problem not with avg because now i dont have anti virus but could the
problem be somehow connected with internet security settings
