Even if you find ClearScreen Player attractive and somewhat useful, our research team classifies it as a potentially unwanted program. This program supposedly can help you “enjoy” online videos without your browser, directly from the Desktop. The most interesting feature associated with this video player is the transparency settings that allegedly allow adjusting the quality of the video you are watching. On top of that, this program is free to download from clearscreenplayer.com. Have you downloaded this program from its official website thinking that it can be a useful addition to your operating system? Maybe it was offered to you along with other programs via a software bundle? Whatever the case, we advise deleting ClearScreen Player from your browsers, and you can learn why this is advisable by reading the report.
ClearScreen Player presents the videos you can find on youtube.com, dailymotion.com, vimeo.com, and blinkx.com. Despite the fact that this function works, you have to ask yourself if you need a program that offers you the same content that you can find via your browser. After all, videos will not be loaded if you are offline, and the app is not special in any way. What is more, this potentially unwanted program is also considered risky. Have you seen ads popping up after downloading this PUP? Well, this is caused by the program itself as it is the one injecting advertisements. The EULA (End User License Agreement) statement – which you can find on the official website – provides very important information about the advertising processes. First of all, it reveals that ClearScreen Player is supported by advertising, which is why users who classify this app as an ad-supported program are not wrong. Furthermore, this statement reveals that ads can be shown periodically after analyzing your search queries to ensure that they are attractive to you personally. The creator of this PUP relies on attractive ads to bring in the profit because money is not earned if you do not click on the ads shown to you. Luckily, the ads represented by this PUP should show up with the tag identifying the program injecting them, which makes it easier to avoid them.
Although many users download ClearScreen Player from its official website, many users also acquire it packaged with third-party software, and it is important to discuss this. The creator of this PUP is likely to pay third-party distributors to promote it across the web, but some of these distributors might be unreliable or even malicious. Depending on the party controlling the bundled installer, you could find ClearScreen Player packaged along with adware, hijackers, and even Trojans. The worst part is that some malware distributors manage to spread infections silently. Even if you think that your operating system is clear from malicious threats, you should scan your PC with a malware scanner to make sure. Do not panic if malware is detected. If dangerous, critical threats are detected, it is best to use automated removal software for a quick elimination. If you find that you can erase the existing threats yourself, research them before you jump to anything. You can check our website for the removal articles of the infections active on your PC.
