The newest adobe flash player update gave my computer a virus that required me doing a system restore and completely removing adobe flash player from my system. It was sending spam emails in different languages and spam videos. It was able to slip through my virus scan in the initial download but was found after I scanned it again when I began having problems. I need flash player to do online school work, but cannot have my computer spammed, infected, and crashing anymore. Is there any way this can be fixed so I can use it without problems. Most people I know who have tried updating it have not been able to because their virus scan wont allow them to do it and it comes up as a dangerous file. Please help
Download Flash Player only from the Adobe.com website, not any dubious 3rd-party download site.
