FlashPlayer.hta is a malicious installer.  Any time you see it don't click on it, instead either send the URL directly to phishing@adobe.com or private message it to one of the staff members that posts on the Flash Player forums.

If you're constantly getting installer notifications for FlashPlayer.hta it most likely indicates your system has been compromised in some form.  If you haven't done so you should run a complete system scan for viruses, malware, adware, etc
