If the Adobe Flash Player web browser plug-in is not installed on your computer or needs updating, only download it from the following website: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

If you have downloaded and installed the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player from the above website and you are still being asked to install it, the website that you are on is either malicious or there is a malicious advertisement displaying the fake Adobe Flash Player link.

Because most persons are always anxious to watch a video online, they will quickly click on a link and install any software in order to do so. Doing so is very dangerous because you can download a malicious program, which will spy on you, steal your personal information, credit card information, or online accounts username and password.
