I am unable to install flash player due to malware infection of the download installer. AVG2014 picks this up as soon as i run the installer and shows details of the malware and prompts to clean.After clicking clean a script error comes up and asks continue running script? y/n both responses give same result the avg clean rips out the installation package from the download folder. I have tried the following downloaded from the stand alone site as above.D/L from 2 other sites All 3 Gave the same malware and clean result. I even D?L 3 copies from the secure site and ran each one in turn with same result in turn. hav downloade othe sftwre from non adobe sites to see if it was my laptop infected they installed and ran ok even when the Flash player Installer was present. It seems thet the malware is detected as soon as the installer is run..
Your issue is not the same as the issue in the thread you posted to (Flash player installing failed). To keep threads from getting confusing with multiple disparate issues, I branched your post into a new thread.
Our installers are checked regularly for viruses and malware and have not been found to be infected. It has been a known issue in the past where certain anti-virus software has flagged the Flash Player installers as potentially malicious. This usually happens around the time of a new release when the anti-virus company has not yet updated their virus definition files. Please be sure your anti-virus software definition files are up-to-date. If it continues to flag Flash Player installer, downloaded from adobe.com as malicious, please contact the anti-virus software maker.
I have been using AVG (currently AVG2014) for a long time, and I never had a problem with any Flash Player installer.
Make sure you only download installers from adobe.com / macromedia.com websites like
