Fake Adobe Flash Player Installer and Redirect Virus

Fake Flash Player Update is a browser redirect that will try to get you to voluntarily download malware onto your computer. It will start appearing on web pages as ads and when opening the internet a page will open saying "A flash player update is required to view this content." This can start because of downloading freeware bundled with this program. It will eventually start redirecting you to an update page every time you search. It can get into Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox. It can be removed in the registry fairly easily. As long as you don't download the "update", no real damage will come from this program.
