I am running Windows 8.1 and have removed Flash Player because my system in the last week developed a condition where all I would get is an error message when trying to play UTube videos. I was trying to reinstall Flash Player by downloading the "adove flash player setup.exe" from adobe but bullguard is blocking it as known malicious software when I try to run the exe. Does anyone know what is going on here?

Hi Leo,

Please download Adobe Flash Player from the official Adobe webpage .

Regarding the inability to watch videos on YouTube, this may be related to a proxy service set by a browser add-on. Download AdwCleaner from here and run a scan with it.
