A question about Macromedia (Flash player 6 )

Lately I've been getting this (pop up?) message appearing while I'm A2King. I don't know for certain whether it's a genuine message or not.
Could someone advise me?

The information box is headed "Internet Explorer"

Message under the heading: "Internet Explorer encountered a problem with an add-on & needs to close".

"The following add-on was running when this problem occured:

file: flash ocx

Company name: Macromedia Inc.

Description: Macromedia Flash Player 6

This free player is required to view the website you are visiting"

----

OK, should I respond to the request to send an error report/download the suggested stuff?

If I click "Don't send" I lose my current connection to A2K & have to re-enter the site.

Some advice, please, someone in the know?
I'm uncertain of how to preceed.

Thanks in advance,
Olga

I'm not certain either ms olga but you do not need to have flash to view a2k unless you click on a link to a video so i humbly suggest you should not download. I would suggest a yuckwear scan as this seems the most likely source of the pop-up. I can tell you with certainty that I dont get this pop-up here, however i am running etrust firewall and firefox browser and dont get any ads at all.

Thanks, dadpad.

.. um, "yuckware"? (Pardon my ignorance)

I run Spybot & Ad-aware & my anti-virus program. I need something else, then? Gosh.

It just happened again. I clicked "send report" & got bumped out of A2K again & received this message:

ok so macromedia is a legit program from Adobe. You should not access the player via the advert instad go to Major geeks and download via their site.
This is a free download. Choose from one of the sites for your download. Click on your selected location on the web page i have linked you to and follow the prompts.
Or use the links in the thread i linked to below

"Yuckwear" is a term for all that stuff that ends up on your computer that tells the web where you have been and what sites you visited and allows targeted advertising via a site such as A2K. You probably dont need more than spybot and adaware just run them in safe mode. really you should make it a habit to run timbers Yuckwear removal thread in its entire form.

Breaking news Read this first. this threads would seem relevant

Thank you for that, dadpad. I'll follow up your advice tomorrow, it being a bit late now.

Much appreciated,
