Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

1.Close all web browsers including IE9.
2.As dgofman wrote, get the Flash Uninstaller from Adobe.  But, run it elevated as Administrator because you're using Windows 7.
3.Run Regedit and find this registry key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/MIME/Database/Content Type/Application/x-shockwave-flash. Delete the key.  (Note: editing the registry is dangerous and can cause your machine to stop functioning.  Back up the registry first: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Back-up-the-registry )
4.Reinstall Flash from IE.
5.Browse to the pages that weren't displaying properly, and verify that they display successfully.

all great suggestions - we tried some or all of all of them. Finally it was determining that she was using the 64 bit IE and it wasn't clearing properly soooo once we got it all cleared we used the 32 bit IE and all is good.
