Hi OneMarcilV! We don't have a malware section here yet!
If you think flash has infected your PC, you might give this a look!!
Remove fake update Flash Player or Java pop-up virus
IMHO I think you may have infected your PC with a fake flash update drive by. I hope not, but there is that possibility!!
PS I would skip the HitMan Pro unless you're still having a problem.
I doubt that you will need it!!

If that is malware then boot in to safe mode to catch the blagard snoozing and run malwarebytes. Then do a deep scan with your anti virus.
That if it's what I think it is, can be blocked from popping up by increasing the level of the built in popup blocker. If all else fails, download a popup blocker.

Hi! Always good to boot into safe mode while running malwarebytes. I like that "Catch the blagard snoozing"That might get it done if you are infected. Here's how I handle malware. I run these programs in this order. MBAM is good, but some times I find it needs a little help with these kind of infections. You may have to reset your browsers if you still have a problem. I have removed this flash virus here at Golden Oaks.
MABM Antii- root kit
Adwccleaner
MBAM free!
ESET on line scanner.
JRT
MBAB free(Again)

Hi! That's the best I can do for you. Adobe is well know for attracting malware. If your sure your PC is free from malware, then I don't have any more suggestions for you!!
It would not hurt to run malwarebytes like setishock suggested. We can only advise what we think might be the problem. The rest is up to you to decide if you want to take our advise! When you say Adobe is blocking things on a web page, does that not tell you there is a problem. Adobe does not normally block things on a web page!!
