When I booted up this morning (win XP pro) I went to make a cup of tea and when I got back a program called FlashUtil9D.exe was informing me that Flash Player had an update as described in APSB07-20. What is confusing me is how it got access to the internet. I had not started a browser, there are no Adobe programs in my startup sequence (I use Start Up Control Panel by Mike Lin) and Zone Alarm is configured to 'ask' for all Adobe applications.
The only thing I can think is that Flash knew about the update last night and waited till restart to tell me, but this doesn't sound right because Start Up Monitor normally catches any prog that leaves a runonce in the registry.
Any ideas? Maybe Adobe has given me a rootkit. I wouldn't be overly surprised.
