first, what program (specifically) did you install and from where?
Sounds more like a worm than the real flash... is the site to get it from.
Second, open regedit, navigate to :
HKey_Local_Machine\software\microsoft\windows\curr entversion\run
Look there to see if you see anything strange. Also look in Runounce. Then Look in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es for anything that might be linked. You can also check startup from the start menu for possible connections.

Tell us if you find something you can't get rid of...

will thanks anyway i was able to fix the flash problem and uninstall msn...
for flash i ran the registry mechanic tool and i think that did it becouse i restarted my computer and everything was fine..
for msn i found this..if you go to run and type:
RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\inf\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove
it should remove msn..i just thought i share..
but thank you anyway
