Falashplayer

Hello

I installed and then uninstalled "Falshplayer" several weeks ago.
But today after Windows XP loaded I got a "Falashplayer" advertisment asking to "install" or "remind me later or "do not install"

I think I was not connected to net but I am not sure.

How can prevent future advertisment, and why was "Zone Alarm Secuirity suite" , which I have installed, was not able to block such advertisment.

I have Adobe Acrobat installed on the computer.

Eaglek1,

That wasn't actually an ad but it was a notice of an update being available.  You were most likely connected to the Internet or had been and the notice could not appear at that time.  If your concern was an ad then this may be all you need.  If you want to stop the Flash player from checking for updates then let me know.  In my opinion it is better to let it do it, especially since you will not often see that update notice (unless you never update).

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

I find the B grade odd since you never posted a response to my comment but I'm glad I could help.  If you still need help with this or accidently closed this then let me know.
