Security experts warn computer users not to rely on and install the updates promoted via pop-up windows from the domain. The pop-ups may suggest you to install an update to your Java and Adobe Flash software, but you should not trust those invites. The domain is not trusted, and the legitimate Adobe and Java software have a built-in updater that will install secure updates. The pop-up windows are caused by an adware infection on your computer. The adware linked to may have entered your system as a drive-by installation of a free program setup. Security experts remind users to use the 'Advanced' or 'Custom' option of freeware installers to be aware of what is being written on their machine. The adware may have edited your Windows Registry and could be listed as a start-up program. The pop-up windows may contain links to harmful domains where you could be facing web-based attacks at vulnerabilities in your browser and active plug-ins. Once again, users should not download and install the updates promoted via the pop-up windows. The software offered on may contain cyber threats like Delphi and Nurevil, and you may lose data and control of your PC. The adware linked to may have installed its files in the Temp folder under the Windows directory to evade detection and is not likely to appear on the extensions manager of your Internet client. Therefore, you might wish to use a trustworthy anti-malware tool to eradicate the adware and prevent security breaches.
