It's a video player bundled with a load of malware. If it's already installed you'll need to remove it and remove the malware along with it. Here are some resources:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
SuperAntiSpyware

If you don't have an anti-virus:
Microsoft Security Essentials

If you don't have a firewall:
Comodo Firewall (Install as Firewall Only)

Alternative video player:
Video Lan - VLC Media Player

I searched through add/remove programmes and see nothing named FLV.
I did install limewire the other day but i removed it and reset my pc and still get the popup "FLV Direct installation,The installer is outdated please download the new version".
Im using Norton 360 v4 and tried spybot with no luck.

Do a system restore to a point before you installed the software ... Also... Limewire is a virus magnet... forewarned is forearmed..
