Get rid of whatever A/V you downloaded. Don't need it. As for PWs, OSX asks for your PW whenever you are changing an application. And with the new Sandboxing function, it asks for it for any software trying to install from an unknown (to Apple) source, i.e., third-party websites. If you want to disable the sandbox protections, System Preferences, Security and Privacy, change the selection where it says "Allow applications downloaded from:" to whatever you want. "Anywhere" is the most open, but also most risky, as OSX gets out of the way of any install, including malware.

Flash is a resource hog. I don't have it installed, nor do I have Java. Both have security holes you can drive a truck through.
