  • Explain your problem in step-by-step detail if possible: I went to a website [REMOVED] that kept asking me to update my flash player - so I did. I started the download from my browser and proceeded to install. I kept getting virus protection warnings telling me the software is not trusted. Being it was Adobe , I ignored it. I started to install the software update for flash player and then this popped up [screenshot below]. The installation did not complete and now every 10 seconds I get this same screen to pop up. If I try to download the flash player update again it will do the same thing and pop up a second identical error window. I think I've broken my laptop with this flash player update...
