Adobe Flash Player Update Request Keeps Popping Up

Running Windows 7 64-bit Internet Explorer 10

I keep getting a pop up when browsing asking me to update my Adobe flash player software. I already have the latest version. I uninstalled the old version via control panel and reinstalled the latest version 11.

I am also getting popping up asking me to download ilivid software. Something is obviously triggering these ads, but what?

Any help welcome. Thank you.

First - Scan for virus an malware.

I use to get that on a regular basis, especially when using YouTube.

Not sure now how I cured the problem, but I think it was something to do with Java, on a Google search for an answer.

I'm actually getting allot of ad pop ups now. I have run my anti virus scan but it hasn't helped. Can anyone recommend a good free malware remover please.

I use SuperAntiSpyware with good results. Some of the other forum member's seem to like Malwarebytes.

For advertisement blocker, I use Adbloc Plus, which works very well.
