Ever so often I get a window popup and telling me my adobe flash player is out of date is this a virus in Mozilla Firefox I do not have adobe flash player install on my computer and i will never install it. So what should i do about this.

I have scan for malware viruses adware it comes up clean.....


I have a firewall up and antivirus and online security that should of block it. My antivirus is vipre internet security.


I ran a deep clean and it comes up as clean.

and I don't like to install software that i don't use.
or that will cause problems down the road.

Are you *sure* you don't have the Adobe Shockwave Flash Plugin installed? If not I'd uninstall and reinstall Firefox. If that doesn't help then I would contact Adobe for assistance. In that case let me know what they tell you. Scott.

It appears you may have some malware on that system: https://www.google.com/search?q=fake+flash+player

Let me know what the problem and solution turns out to be. Scott.

To add to Scott's comment, I've also seen these fake Adobe update pages be opened by (usually advert heavy) web sites.

Unless no browsers were already open, I'd see what the web site was you were just visiting prior to the Adobe page appearing. (And avoid it in future!)

I got everything seems to be working now. I didn't have malware on my computer and I got the vipre internet security 2016 chat with support it was due to that I had the 3rd party cookies block so now it working if I just remember to re enable the 3rd party cookies.


take care
