Many users complain about otshot which is considered to be unwanted program and below is a demand from a user:

Did anyone else get "otshot" on their computer? I can't find it using control panel to uninstall it, but each time I reboot it shows up, tries to change my email to Outlook. I have looked for answers on the web and I don't trust the sites I'm finding. I have used Malwarbytes to scrub my hard drive, it tells me it finds nothing amiss. I have used Microsoft Essentials to do a full scan, again no error messages. If anyone has a clue, I'd be glad for insight. I honestly don't know which step I took that allowed this to junp on to my system. Something I did Tuesday had about six things downloading. I think it was when CNN told me I had to download a new adobe. Anyway, I'd be happy to rid myself of this pest. Thanks.
