“Flash Player Pro” Is Not A Legit Release Of Flash – Don’t Install It

There have been reports of Flash update pop-ups that are leaving people with infected computers. There is always one rule of thumb. Never install anything that isn’t directly released from the distributor. This is really the only way to ensure that you are not installing a tainted piece of software.

In this case, I would go directly to adobe.com and download any updates that might be offered. You can see by the below url that this “update” is suspect and shouldn’t be trusted. It was released by treyeats.com/flashpro/download5.php?src=114695&kw=sear&lp=4n. This is obviously NOT an adobe domain and therefore should not be trusted.

Below is the message that these people are receiving and leading them to download corrupt software. Beware when on the internet. You computer, school work, and work life might be under attack.

Flash Player Pro is distributing custom installers which are different from the originally available distribution. These new installers comply with the original software manufacturers’ policies and terms & conditions. Optimum Installer is an install manager, which manages the installation of your chosen software.

You are not required to install any additional software to complete your installation of your selected software. You can always completely remove the programs at any time in Windows’ Add/Remove Programs.
