Hello All. I am new here and recently bumped into your site by looking up a security issue that Adobe Flash Player Security pointed out. It stated

" Adobe Flash Player has stopped a potentially unsafe operation. The Following local application on your computer network [object] is trying to communicate with this internet-enabled location: player.cdn.targetspot.com To let this application communicate with the internet, click settings. You must restart the application after changing your settings."

Now I am not sure that has anything really to do with my particular issue as it has been affecting my computer for the past few days. I currently use Google Chrome as my web browser and have not had any issues with it until recently. I noticed that when I click on pages I will get a "google cannot open this page" message constantly. I also noticed that when I go to some websites my Flash player seems not to work. ie. www.billboard.com I get to that page and all I can see is the top of the page but if I click on anything it will not show any text or anything on the page. I also seem to notice that occasionally especially while on myspace.com that when I click a link it pulls up a blank tab in my browswer while on the original tab it goes to the link I clicked on. I thought to try other browsers ie. internet explorer and mozilla firefox but they all seem to have the same problem. I am starting to wonder if there is something attacking my adobe flash and causing all this unloadable pages.

I decided to remove an anti virus program about a few months ago that was causing issues with my computer before. However with these issues popping up I just downloaded the free version of Spyware Doctore and anti virus.

If anyone could help me I would greatly appreciate it.
