  2. That is great that I need to wait for Microsoft to fix the issue but Skype will not work on my computer since this started happening…any suggestions for that please?

    • I’m sorry. I have no idea about the Skype problem
      Have you tried reinstalling Skype
      I didn’t think that Skype used Adobe flash in any way and it really shouldn’t be affected by it

  3. Yes skype uses flash ,not for anything useful though, and issues with the debug version have been reported in the past.

    You can get rid of the offending ads by using a custom hosts file. I recommend “mvps”. You can read how-to over at

  4. Thanks for writing this. I’ve been having this problem and a have a limited knowledge of these things. (in other words, I’m an older guy who has learned everything I know on my own!) I’ve been worried about what to do about it. (if anything) I’ve been worried if I should even be online!.

    From what I understand here, this is annoying, but not a security issue? AND that they’re (Microsoft) aware of it and will issue a fix in the next update? If so, I can live with being annoyed for a while longer. I just don’t want to be worried!

    • That is correct. It is extremely annoying and sometimes crashes Internet explorer but it is not a security risk and does not open any holes to let you be infected
      Hopefully it won’t be long before Microsoft fix it

      • I’ve been reading a lot about this but this is the first time I’ve actually heard anyone tell me that I don’t need to worry.

        I’m glad I trusted my instincts for a change too and didn’t do some of the things people were suggesting. (don’t believe everything you read on the internet, right?)

        Well, good. I think I can finally relax! (between pop ups!)

        Again, thank you.
