  • Never heard of it but Google came up with this: http://cardhouse.com/otto/
  • Hi:

    "otto" is just some preinstalled junkware games from wildtangent that can be safely removed. It was one of the first things I uninstalled from Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs, on my Dim 9100 when I first got it last year.
