We aren’t sure how reliable that info is, but if you see any Adobe Flash pop-ups you didn’t try to install yourself, make sure you don’t accept them. The way malware gets on your computer is usually when you download things and the malware can be compiled in with other programs so you don’t notice it. Other times, the adware may try to get you to download things because it profits when it gets you to download a program from the internet.
