    I kept getting these popup messages about installing Flash Player Pro - numerous times a day. I finally figured out why. I had installed "Unfriend App" (Facebook). After I uninstalled this App I quit getting the popups.

    With IE 10, I had to change the popup settings from Medium to High to block the popups when surfing . Here are a few addresses I have come across using the same format. They are only links to the initial page, not the actual download. (I had to break up the reply since too long of a message pushes the personal details and the post comment button behind the previous replies. ???) http: //adc.flashproplayer.com/download5adc.php?src=ADC&kw=50011&lp=4

I would also like to take the time to apologize for any concerns about our comment system, it can get very messy.

      You can install something like Adblock plus or some type of free ad-blocking attachment for your browser. Another way to restrict this website is to use Windows hosts file and place 127.0.0.1 treteats.com at the bottom of the file.

      If you are getting popups without visiting a site, you already have the malware.

          Check your computer for any unwanted software that may be affecting your system. Go into the Control Panel and look through the list of installed programs via the Uninstaller and see if there is software you do not recognize. Also check your browser add-ons and extensions for any unwanted items and remove them if found.
