AV software is not supplied separately with OS X, so only you know what AV software you have installed. It may also be blocked if you have not installed the current Java software. Can't tell you what to get because you haven't posted what version of OS X you have installed.
If you aren't technologically capable, then you shouldn't be using OS X Server.
Apple Java 2013-005 - For OS X 10.7 and 10.8.
Apple Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 17 - Java updater for OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.
Apple Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 10 - Java update for Leopard.

you can find out what applications are currently running on the mac by opening a force quit window (click on the black apple in top left of mac screen then choose force quit)
to see what all applications are currently installed on your mac you can open a finder window (click the blue square finder icon on the dock) then on the left side click on applications for complete listing of all installed applications. find the one that is the AV software and then either do search to see if it requires an uninstaller to remove it or try dragging the software to the trash on the dock and emptying it to remove it from the mac.
as Kappy pointed out w/o more information this is just basic how to type of information

You probably have not updated Flash for quite some time, I would guess, and are using a version that is known to be insecure and has been blocked. Install the latest version of Flash from here:
Alternately, consider using Chrome for web sites that use Flash, as it will keep Flash updated for you and includes an additional sandbox for Flash for greater security. I prefer Safari for most of my web browsing, personally, but by using Chrome on those rare occasions that I want to load Flash, I can avoid installing Flash on my system and worry less about loading Flash content.
If that doesn't help, and you have installed some anti-virus software, that could be the issue. If you don't remember what anti-virus software you installed, though, that complicates things. Can you provide us a list of everything in your Applications folder? Open that folder, choose Edit -> Select All, then Edit -> Copy, and paste into a message here. This will insert a list of the names of the Applications in that folder.

Um... any chance it could be a fake page and fake Adobe Flash installer? You said it was a video telling you to install it; it could be a scam, in which case it's possible an AV engine would block it.
Could you post screenshots? I'd like to see whether they're legit. (To take a screenshot, hold Shift-Command-4 and highlight the area. To upload it, click the little camera icon in the reply box.)
I know that sometimes AV engines don't detect things like this, but that's a possibility.
