Hello everyone, I have been watching with great interest for a while.
I have two situations now.
I am told by youtube to install the latest flash player which I do, when I have carried out a clean using adaware/regcure/regscrub and registry mechanic (all of which seem to find different things), the next time I go into youtube, I have to reinstall the latest flash player again. Is there any way of preventing this?

When my system is running slower, I use adaware and it finds several items, is there a way of preventing these getting onto my system in the first place ?

It would seem that one of the applications you are using is doing something to flashplayer, or at least with your registry entries for it. I personally avoid using registry cleaners since they do not really help my computer's functionality, and often recommend the deletion of files that seem to be needed by many of the applications I run.

If you use Ad-aware SE, it would be useful to know what items it finds; whether, for example, these are merely tracking cookies, or something more serious. Knowing this, it would be somewhat easier to advise you on preventing them.

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
