Windows 7: IE Security Pop-up

IE Security Pop-up

As soon as I open IE I get IE Security pop-ups saying "A website wants to open web content using this program on your computer" it wants to run "FlashUtil10h_ActiveX.exe" and it constantly pops up no matter what I click. I've already uninstalled and reinstalled flash so I don't know what to do. It wasn't doing this last night.

Sounds like a virus. To start, download and run MalwareBytes. Don't worry, it won't interfere with any other security software you have installed (as far as I know).

Run an anti-virus scan and an anti-malware scan with Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware

download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop
|MG| Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.46 Download
* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
* At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.

that pop-up stopped when I uninstalled it again and restarted my comp, but it came back as soon as I went to the flashplayer site to reinstall it.

Some viruses use flash as their gateway to your computer. Run the MBAM scan.

Good. Do you have a regular anti-virus program you use? I could recommend some free ones if you don't.
