This page aims to help you remove KMPFaster. These KMPFaster removal instructions work for every version of Windows. We received a lot of request to “KMPfaster 移除” or remove, as some users want of us.
Is KMPFaster disturbing you?
Have you recently found KMPFaster on your PC, but cannot recall when and how did you get it? If you have no idea whether this is a reliable and useful program or something you should not trust, reading the information below may help you decide if you really need to keep it or remove it.
The truth is you are probably dealing with a PUP. No, this is not a cute puppy, but a program, and PUP stands for a potentially unwanted program. These programs, in general, provide some functionality, but also some undesired behavior on the users system and as such they are referred to as unwanted. Here is important to know, that PUPs are not dangerous programs, created to infect your system with viruses. They really have no intentions to do any harm on your PC, however, they may incorporate some changes that are annoying to the users. KMPFaster could fall in this category, due to some similarities in its behavior, commonly related to the PUPs. This program may sneak into your PC unknowingly and do some changes you may not like. Therefore, it is a good idea to learn about it and decide for yourself if you really need to remove it.
KMPFaster may be a Source of Interruptions
With its user-friendly name, KMPFaster easily fits in among the list of other programs you may have installed on your PC. But how it behaves may not really fit in with the desired functions of your system or software updates. Having KMPFaster on your PC, you may notice some modifications on your web browser that bring never-ending pop-up messages or some intrusive homepage hijacking. Unknown web pages may appear whenever you open a new tab, or your screen may be invaded by undesired ads and banners. Such actions may not let you enjoy your web surfing and probably are a source of interruptions for your normal browsing habits. This is part of the perfectly legal advertisement campaign employed by the program, yet the amount of Ads seems excessive at times.
This program also has a tendency to start on startup, without having a real need to do so. This will increase your PC’s loading times. Also KMPfaster 移除 is known to run a background process even when you are not using the program. This parasitic process is eating the resources of your computer and we also don’t know what kind of behavior does it take. There is a good chance it connects to a remote server to share your browsing history for the purpose of Ads optimization. This is a widely used practice, but still considered as shady by a great deal of peopl.e
Do notice, however, that KMPfaster 移除 is not a virus. Viruses are malicious pieces of software that aim to perform damage on your system and information. KMFaster, on the contrary, is a legal program, developed by Simplitec GmbH. It does exhibit some unwanted behavior, but it is still legal and many people do find it useful and keep it on their computers.
KMFaster got installed unknowingly. How is this possible?
People usually say that they have installed KMFaster on their computer without notice. This is because KMPfaster 移除 usually comes bundled with other free software (most notably the KMPlayer, which is a popular media player developed by the same company). It is often packed inside custom installers from free download websites. To prevent you from unknown software installations, we strongly advise you to always read the Terms and Agreements before installing any kind of software on your PC. Never click too fast through the “Next” button on the installation process. If you do that, there is a chance you may agree to software you really didn’t intend to install. If the installation wizard offers “Advanced” or “Custom” option, do not be afraid to click it. There you may find some undesired software which is offered and installed during the installation process.
Knowing more about KMFaster is a good way to decide whether this program is worth to have on your PC. If you have experienced some disturbance related to its behavior, then below is a guide on how to remove it.

This is the first preparation.
To remove parasite on your own, you may have to meddle with system files and registries. If you were to do this, you need to be extremely careful, because you may damage your system.
If you want to avoid the risk, we recommend downloading SpyHunter - a professional malware removal tool - to see whether it will find malicious programs on your PC.
The first thing you absolutely must do is Reveal All Hidden Files and Folders.
- Do not skip this. KMPFaster may have hidden some of its files and you need to see them.
Hold together the Start Key and R. Type appwiz.cpl –> OK.
You are now in the Control Panel. Look for suspicious entries. Uninstall it/them. If you see a screen like this when you click Uninstall, choose NO:
Type msconfig in the search field and hit enter. A window will pop-up:
Go in Startup —> Uncheck entries that have “Unknown” as Manufacturer.
Hold the Start Key and R – copy + paste the following and click OK:
A new file will open. If you are hacked, there will be a bunch of other IPs connected to you at the bottom. Look at the image below:
If there are suspicious IPs below “Localhost” – write to us in the comments.
Press CTRL + SHIFT + ESC simultaneously. Go to the Processes Tab. Try to determine which ones are a virus. Google them or ask us in the comments.
WARNING! READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING!
Right click on each of the virus processes separately and select Open File Location. End the process after you open the folder, then delete the directories you were sent to.
Type Regedit in the windows search field and press Enter.
Once inside, press CTRL and F together and type the virus’s Name. Right click and delete any entries you find with a similar name. If they don’t show this way, go manually to these directories and delete/uninstall them:
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—–Random Directory. It could be any one of them – ask us if you can’t discern which ones are malicious.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—Microsoft—Internet Explorer—-Main—- Random
If these things fail to help you find KMPFaster you need to resort to a professional scanner – obviously this is a malware that was created to steal your credentials and credit cards – meaning the people who created it spent a lot of resources to make it as dangerous as possible.
