Have you started seeing irritating advertisements with a label Fireplayer Ads on your screen? If the answer to this question is “yes”, this might be a sign that Fireplayer, which is promoted as a powerful media player, has been installed on your computer. You can easily find out whether it is really installed on your system by checking the %PROGRAMFILES(x86)% directory – this program creates a folder there after the successful installation. Have you managed to detect it there? If so, there is no doubt that this player is installed on your PC and, consequently, you see Fireplayer Ads coming from it. Not all the users see commercials even if they have this program installed on their computers, but it does not mean that they can let this program stay installed on their computers because it might start displaying those ads on their screens later, and, actually, it is not one of those trustworthy programs users can fearlessly keep on their systems. Specialists have even classified it as a potentially unwanted program. They say that this program has one adware feature too – it might start displaying Fireplayer Ads one day on users’ screens.
Fireplayer has been categorized as a potentially unwanted program not only because it might start displaying Fireplayer Ads, but also because it might slither onto computers quite illegally. Specifically speaking, it might be distributed through bundled malicious installers. Of course, this DisplayTime Software Inc. is not the only one which is spread in these installers. In most cases, potentially unwanted applications are distributed together with freeware and shareware and, as a consequence, they manage to enter computers unnoticed. Once Fireplayer is inside the system, it creates a folder FirePlayer in C:\Program Files (x86) and then starts performing activities on a user’s computer, e.g. it might start displaying Fireplayer Ads or start collecting information about them. Potentially unwanted applications are not the only ones that are commonly spread bundled, so security specialists highly recommend installing a powerful security application. It must be installed on all computers with an Internet connection, they say. On top of that, users themselves should be more careful too, for example, they should download software from trustworthy pages only. Additionally, they should always carefully install new programs on their computers so that it would be possible to notice additional software which is trying to get onto the computer illegally and prevent it from entering the system.
