I updated my flash player and now I'm getting popups for Russian and Asian girls and other malicious looking pages. I can click on something in my browser and these will popup on another page. How can I stop them?

Hi @dragonforce2000 and welcome to the community!

Thank you for posting your concern here. 

The flash player update that you have downloaded may not be a legitimate update which is the reason why your browser has been hijacked. This is the reason why you are being redirected to a different page whenever you open your Internet browser.

To resolve this issue, please visit the link below:

Resetting your web browser for performance and website redirection issues

With regards to the flash player update that caused this, please check your Program List from the Control Panel for any potentially unwanted programs (PUA).

Here's the link on resolving PUA issues:

Uninstalling Potentially Unwanted Applications (PUA)

We hope this helps. Should you have further concerns, please do not hesitate to let us know.

Thank you and have a great day! :)
