In addition, the BlitzMediaPlayerBrowser will monitor search terms a user types into the browser and if such terms are for actions like downloading software, the service will popup a custom popup windows asking the user to download it 'free' from its partner site. The suggested 'free' download is bundled with a number of adware components using such download manager like DomaIQ from Tuguu SL.
