Where a video clip used toa appear onscreen that normally would be run by Adobe Flash, in its place appears a grey box with the message:

This plugin is vulnerable and should be updated.

Check for updates.

Activate Adobe Flash.

Even when I go to the adobe website, any video clips on that site display the same grey box with the same message.

 

The thing looked phishy so I didn't click on anything and haven't been infected, exactly, with anything but the "Adobe Flash hijacker" (as I'm calling it).  .  But I haven't been able to play any tutorials, for instance, and I'd like to get that capability back.

What do I need to do?

Duh.

Thanks.  I really thought it was malware trying to get me to bite.
