I keep getting a popup for movieplayerupdate.com. How do I get rid of it?
When I go to certain websites a popup comes up that warns me I don't have the latest movie player. The URL is movieplayerupdate.com. I want to get rid of this popup.

I do not get any page with that address. It is totally blank.
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"
I would get my Flash player from Adobe, not from some third party.

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?
