Windows 7: flash.exe signed by stepan rybin got through and I would like details

Windows 7 Home Premium 64
flash.exe signed by stepan rybin got through and I would like details

I'm usually good at determininng which updates are true (or needed) and which aren't but somehow this one fooled me: flash BUT I did stop it immediately as it was trying to install itself--the stop didn't work so I did a CTrl-Alt-delete etc. etc And also my antivirus kicked in as well. BUT on reboot I found 'flash.exe' and it is signed by stepan rybin. Anyhow I know where the file is so I can delete it. And as I am writing this I am also running Malwarebytes and my anti virus but I wanted to write here to get more details from you guys. For ex. I assume I should be looking at the registry as well. All info would be appreciated.

In what folder is it?
By your description it seems to me that there is a virus trying to disguising itself as Flash Player (whose main executable is NOT called flash.exe).
