Hi,

 

In the past few days I've gotten popups twice asking me to run or save FlashPlayer.hta Type: HTML application, 1.44 kb From: quoopsocaltransport.org

 

I've never been on that site in my life. Is it some other infected site I've been on trying to get into my computer, or is it a virus already on my computer?

 

I use Windows 7 and these prompts came up while using Google Chrome and Skype. 

 

Kaspersky Internet Security scans don't find anything and neither does Malwarebytes. 

 

I would appreciate any help, thank you!

Most likely it is just an infected site trying to get you to install malware on your machine. This is a very common tactic.

 

If I was you I would be unconcerned, though we can run some additional scans if you like.

Seems that this may have been related to this...
