Following page pops up every time I try to download. It has never happened before. Is this a virus?

For the extension to execute external commands (start the external download manager for instance and send links to it) one extra step is required. Please download, unzip and install this minimal native client to allow the extension to communicate with the external side.

   Click here to download the ZIP package for your operating system or click here to browse all available download options.
   Extract the downloaded package into a local directory
   Now double-click the install.bat file

Probably your addon "Download with FlashGet" is doing it. According to comments, it doesn't work after all, so you can remove it.
