I have no idea what that "google suggestion" is; can you post a screenshot?
I have used Flash Player since version 6, and I never got any unwanted 3rd-party programs installed. Try using the offline installers (as long as they are still available):
before this last flash update, my history appeared where that "google suggestions" thing is.
before i disabled it, it listed words like you would see appearing below the search field on google, which i hardly ever use
because they track visitors and they connect your browsing to your youtube and + and droid accounts, etc.
it's a privacy thing
Sorry, I have no idea what that is. But definitely not something you got from the Flash Player installer (not if you downloaded it from the Adobe/Macromedia site).
i appreciate any and all responses attempting to address this issue, but yeah it certainly did come
from the flash update off the flash site.
Can you post the link from where you downloaded that installer? There is another topic nearby where someone claims to have received some 47 pieces of malware with the Flash Player installer.
other than going into my history i'm not sure how to look up the address.
the flash installer sent me there.
i have 3 links in my history folder from today
Adobe - Install a different version of Adobe Flash Player
Adobe - Install Adobe Flash Player
https://get3.adobe.com/flashplayer/download/?installer=Flash_Player_14_for_Internet_Explor er&os=Windows 7&browser_type=MSIE&browser_dist=OEM&dualoffer=true&chromedefault=false&type=au&browser_v ers=11&d=Google_Toolbar_7.5&d=Google_Chrome_35.0_IE_Browser
again, i specifically unchecked the boxes that asked permission to install the google toolbar
and set google chrome as default browser. after just about every update, i have to go back
and uninstall malware and reset my browser settings to the way they were, no watter how
i check the google boxes before the updates
for some reason, this box changes the links to display as link titles
I see in the URL you provided "dualoffer=true", which indicates the offer check-boxes were selected. If you unchecked the offer checkboxes, it shouldn't download the installer with the offers. I have filed an internal bug to investigate this.
would be grateful for a way to delete this "google suggestions" thing without having to reinstall my browser.
this thing is malware.
i never asked for it or gave permission for it to be installed; it provides no value to me; and is a privacy liability.
i have gone through add/remove programs and i can't find a way to remove this thing.
update: it's an add on. tools>manage add-ons>search providers
delete the google add-on and review the 2 check boxes at bottom of window
