Adobe Flash Player updater RRS feed

  • Question

  • Wasn't getting adobe flash updates and check spybot teatimer and it said it deleted C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil32_11_3_300_271_Plugin.exe.  So thinking that this was mistake.  I allowed it in start up.  Maybe made a big mistake.  Because when I restarted 764pro, an adobe window came up wanting to uninstall flash, ok, maybe it needs to install a new one...  So no new one was installed and adobe wasn't working in moz, but the 11.3 plugin was working in chrome.  Ok.  So go back and get 11.4 flash, put it in and everything seems fine.  I'm just wondering if the above file was some sort of malware.  So I blacklisted it on teatimer and it hasn't come up since.  I did check in that folder and adobeflashupdateservice.exe is there, but not the flshutil file.  That's gone.  I've run numerous scans over the weeks with malwarbytes free, spybot, ms sec essentials and nothing has been found and nothing funny is happening with the system so far.  So I don't know.  Anyone know.

    Thanks again all,
