How to scan whith webroot complete scan. What happen if i have the browser open?
Another cuestion Supouse i am browsing and see something suspicious, Now on day i see a suspicious thing a fake flash player install, i see that and i still worried because i think it installs on my computer. I am a litle paranoid and think if i see in some situationns a spot of posible rougue ware and i think it installs on the machine (no mater what machine), as you can se not ever you can not close all windows or terminate browser process whith task manager. And it worries. Now if i persorm a full scan the temp files of browsers obviously are in use and have the posibility webroot skip its. Did i have to close the browsers. Can i do an more agressive scan in safe mode whith network conection? i wait your answers and always good bless you

I'm not sure if Im answering your question correctly..but you can go into safe mode, networking and do a complete scan with WSAC. Scan from browsers, without browsers. WSAC works all the time scanning.
Flash itself is generally considered safe as long as you keep it up to date. Install ALL available updates as soon as they are released.
Adobe has to pay for the free software somehow, and they do it by allowing 3rd party software to be installed as well, but note you CAN reject these add-ons.
Read everything carefully, usually there will be several 'check boxes', all of which are already checked. only ONE of them is required for the Adobe software, the rest are giving permission to install the junk. Remove the checks from those.
I may be incorrect in my reply, but I think that is what you were seeing...
If you want more information regarding these applications that are offered as 'free trials', or otherwise included with a legit download of Adobe Flash, let me know. :) (We commonly call this roque, crap stuff PUA's)
David i see a website who request flash Player cell Phone number and too many flashong ads and drancerous because that i am worried i kill chrome task and reboot use chrome a while clean temp files and continúe use now i am hwlpong my cousin whith his thesis i rip a dvd and while plain to do a full scan whith mbam and webroot. Do you think i have something Bad ? Idont see nothing but obvious that was a Bad website secon i close browsers and continúe use word and rip soft did i have to stop it during both scans?
You may want to consider requesting that Webroot review the page and re-classify it as a risk so that it will be blocked in the future.
Please refer to Rakanisheu's reply HERE for instructions on how to do this.
As for do you have something bad.. it does not sound like it. It sounds like you did the right thing when presented with a potentiall bad popup or site: you ended the process to avoid clicking anything. That is sometimes the best way to make sure that you do no get infected from a malicious pop up.
EDIT: Also since your using Windows 8.1 you don't need any Flash updates for IE as you get it from Windows Update and if you have Chrome when Flash is updated Chrome will install a new version of Chrome with the updated Flash if you use any other Browsers like Firefox then you have to have to download the Flash Update for Plug-in Browsers only!
