To find out more, you can Google "Adobe Air". For starters, here's a link to WiKi:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adobe_Integrated_Runt...

Although your computer and Windows don't require Air, it is used when using the internet, for certain aspects on web pages - I can't say for what, exactly; you can check for yourself.

As far as I'm aware, the majority of users have it installed, without problem - providing you have the latest version.

[Adobe software is known for being a target for the "bad guys" and requires frequent security updates].

There has recently been an update for Air - if you download and install this (from the following link), it should clear your threat.

If you have further Q.'s or problems, then post back.
