Flash Player for IE 10 in WIn 8 is "embedded" by Microsoft, and you don't update it outside of Windows Update, so, the odds are the notices you see are fake. If the notices appear in your browser, you need to look into another browser like Firefox, that uses add-ons like AdBlock Plus (not comaptible with IE - it doesn't work with ActiveX controls).
If you're seeing the update outside of the browser, you've likely got "adware" that's causing it.
Yeah, probably fake.
If in doubt, just go to the Adobe website and install the latest or check your version from off the home page.
I use Spybot to prevent Adware on Windows. There is also Ad-Aware, too.
Thank you, I will scan and not the app in my security to block it.
Thank you I will use your advice.
