    Stinger and Adobe Flash Player Virus

      I downloaded Stinger from McAfee and I get alert that FlashUtil10m_ActiveX.exe is a FakeAlert!fakealert-REP trojan. This is the report I get. I also scanned the computer with Microsft Security Essentials with Admin privileges. Also scanned with Malwarebyte with Admin privileges and neither found any viruses.
