Computer users infected with adware should note that the pop-up windows are not used by Adobe Systems Inc. to alert users of an available update to their Flash player. The domain is used by adware developers to spread fake Flash Player updates that may contain malicious code and adware like ClipyHD and Coupnoon Toolbar to earn pay-per-click revenue. The pop-up windows can be presented to you by adware powered browser plugin and an extension. The pop-ups may use the logo of the Adobe Flash Player to claim credibility and promise users a faster loading of videos, but you should not trust the pop-ups. As stated above, your system is infected with adware, and you may be invited to install potentially harmful software that could allow third parties to connect to your PC remotely. The adware may write a registry entry to launch with your browser, and the pop-ups may appear at set intervals of time. Users are advised to eradicate adware with the help of a reputable anti-malware app and secure their system.
