Fake Adobe Flash Player Update

  woodm01 23:27 31 Mar 2017

When using Microsoft Edge browser, on occasions keep getting a box come up saying Adobe Flash Player needs updating. I have realised this is a spoof, but csnnot remove it. I have used Norton Internet full scan and Spybot. Has anyone else come across this and removed it successfully?

Run AdwCleaner and follow instructions. Should remove the PUP.

Tried that cleaner, did not find anything, but the popup still comes up randomly.

I had the same messages a week ago. Updated to Version Is this the version you are on?

Perhaps the pop up isn't a spoof. I haven't heard of this site before but have a look at this link:- click here BT website says it still uses Flash to run BT Sport.
