I often see/hear people writing and saying "install Adobe Flash", "update Adobe...". I'm sure DTV chat/skype utilises it. But is it pilfering your info or at least leaving you exposed? I use it and am just about to alter it's settings

Good post Doogle. Last week I upgraded Adobe flash player and several programs piggy-backed onto my hardrive. I had to back-up and wipe everything. An Israeli search engine took over among other programs which were copying data and sending it to at least 3 sources online. Wiping everything was my only solution, they were pretty hidden in my system.
