The pop-up windows may suggest you to install an update for Flash Player Pro, but they are generated by adware. You may have installed the adware related to by handling a freeware bundle with the 'express' or 'Typical' option. The legitimate Adobe Flash software does not have a Pro version and will not display pop-ups from to invite users to install updates. The domain is used by adware developers to earn pay-per-install revenue by inviting users to install software packages, under the logo of Adobe Flash, that may contain programs like OtShot and PngToPPTConvert. The programs mentioned before have a bad reputation and could decrease the overall performance of your computer and display advertisements in your Web browser. Moreover, the adware linked to may be used to spread rogue security tools like AlfaAntivirus and Antivirus 7 to scare users into purchasing bogus premium protection. The adware may use an executable DLL file and an extension to performs its operations. Also, the adware changes the home page and the new tab settings of infected users so that they are presented with pop-ups by as often as they open a new tab. The adware linked to could be located in the Temp folder that many threats use to evade security scans.
