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.
