NowUSeeIt Player is an unlikable application of the Adware variety. This is a type of virus that attaches itself to your favorite internet browser – Chrome, Firefox and/or Internet Explorer happen to be evenly attractive to it. Until you remove NowUSeeIt Player you will be the victim of endless spam waves of ads. Pop-up ads, banner adverts are most frequently displayed, but you might also experience new pages opening without your consent or getting redirected when you visit webpages yourself. Rarely the Adware can also turn specific keywords into hyperlinks – whenever you read a text and the word is present it will be highlighted and it will contain a hyperlink with the Ad if clicked on. KEEP IN MIND THAT EXCESSIVE HYPERLINKS ARE DANGEROUS!
What is NowUSeeIt Player?
You have probably heard that Adware threats like NowUSeeIt Player are considered to be the least dangerous out of all malicious applications. That is somewhat true, but by no means they are something you want to have on your computer for too long. These specific kinds of applications often record your online activity. The data obtained is sent online to the inventor of the Adware to be resold.
The advertisements themselves also pose a threat. Cheap or downright fraudulent software and other types of online goodies commonly advertise through Adware channels. Frequently the software is about computer health and security. These scammers play with the fear and ignorance of every day people, who are worried for their devices’ safety. They are bombarded with various kinds of warning, malicious threats and claims of viral infection in order to pay money for a program that doesn’t do anything but simulate finding the problems. Such programs are commonly referred to as PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) and should be uninstalled ASAP.
You probably don’t remember installing NowUSeeIt Player yourself, right?
Adware applications support a legitimate profile – as long as they don’t damage your PC directly they can be obtained from an official site. Few folks actually do so – the majority of victims infected by NowUSeeIt Player received it obliviously, usually while getting some other software.
So far the most popular method of spreading Adware are software bundles. A software bundle is essentially an software installer that has more than one program bundled inside of it. Whenever a naive user runs such an installer and agrees to the default installation functions he will also receive all the additional programs hidden within this installer. On the bright side of things it is fairly easy to avoid becoming infected in this manner, just remember to avoid the custom installation options on all program installers you are unfamiliar with, even on the ones you are well acquainted with. Always go with the advanced settings. You’ll also have the option to remove anything that is not essential and you should take advantage of it.
Additional methods of installing Adware include online storage and cloud download sites, online Ads and email attachments. Most Adware programs like NowUSeeIt Player promise some kind of service for free. It is a good idea to always read a bit of information on any program you want to install – if only to make sure you are installing legitimate software. Prevention and boy scout type of preparedness is always the best form of defense against this type of threats – removing unwanted programs after they are installed can be a difficult and tricky business.
