I seem to have some kind of virus on my laptop that keeps popping up with a request to download the "FLV Player".  Can someone tell me how to fix my computer?

What browser are you using?


(1) Reset the browser.

(2) Disable or remove all browser add ons and tool bars.

(3) Boot up in safe mode with networking. Does the problem still happen?

I'm not sure if this will help but it is worth a try
STEP 1: Uninstall FLV Player programs from your computer
STEP 2: Remove FLV Player adware with AdwCleaner
STEP 3: Remove FLV Player browser hijackers with Junkware Removal Tool
STEP 4: Remove FLV Player virus with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free
STEP 5: Double-check for the FLV Player infection with HitmanPro
