I use Excite as a search engine with Internet Explorer 10 and since yesterday whatever I search for results in a web page prompting to download Flash player. I am suspicious as the name of the file that is downloaded is "Install Flashplayer.exe" .
I have scanned it with Sophos and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and no malware was reported.
I don't get this problem if I use Bing as a search engine.
The properties of the file are reported as shown below, Is this likely to be a virus or malware ?
My PC is running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.
