Be careful of where you are installing Flash updates from.

Be especially wary if a web page all of a sudden pops up a warning that you need to update your flash. Don't do it! New virus installs a bogus version. I've already had to get rid of this on a friends computer, and it's not easy to do.

You should only install flash updates from the Adobe website.

I have to start watching the other computers at my house a little closer now lol. I always install from vendors but the other people in my house are dumb as bricks when it comes down to stuff like this so they constantly install crap that's why they are not allowed to touch my laptop.

The computer i bought for them to use is a crappy cheap rebuilt machine that i bought on Craigslist for $100 and then did a full restore on.
