    I posted the following question on Mar 29 & after some generous help from TSG poster dvk01 the appearances stopped for several weeks but now I saw one again. They are conspicuous because they are not preceded by the standard Adobe message. I suspect that we may not have completely eliminated all the possible sources of infection. Please ignore the NY Times article attached to it.

    " For the last few days a Flash Player notice (see attachment) has been appearing on my screen. It has been very persistent & stays on top of my screen sometimes preventing me from executing commands by graying out the display. This doesn't seem like normal behavior for an install box. How can I check if it is legitimate?"
