this is the exact url that always pops up; http://movieplayerupdate.com/flashplayer/download_free/ Then there is a smaller window that appears within the larger window that says; "WARNING! Your Flash Player may be out of date. Please update to continue"

Hey rojamon, I'm having the same Warning Java window popup issue and I've tried several anti-malware programs with no success. Did you end up fixing it, and if you did what did you use?

Thanks! Jerry
