FirstFlix is a new application that is associated with such programs as TopFlix and AnyFlix. To be more specific, all these programs belong to the same family. In case of FirstFlix, this application promises to enable users to “access U.S restricted content” no matter where they are located. If you open the official website of FirstFlix (firstflix.info), you will immediately notice that this program promises to allow all users to reach such services as NetFlix, Spotify, CBS, HBO, ESPN, BBC iPlayer, and ITV. In fact, specialists working at 411-spyware.com believe that this is one of the main reasons users decide to install FirstFlix on their computers. At the time of writing, it is impossible to download it from its official website, so researchers believe that it is distributed somehow differently. Actually, it does not really matter whether you have downloaded this program from its official website or another third-party source because we still believe that it would be the best decision to erase this program. You will find out why we think so in this article.
First of all, researchers have managed to find out that FirstFlix is going to change the DNS settings on your computer. It is said that these changes are necessary in order to enable “users to browse freely through the web”; however, it is also very likely that it does that to be able to present users with different commercial advertisements. Actually, it is not surprising at all that this program might display pop-ups and other types of commercials because it will drive all the traffic through its own DNS. If you start seeing advertisements on different websites you open with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, you should ignore them all because these ads might quickly expose you to threats even though they look quite harmless. Researchers say that untrustworthy commercial advertisements contain bad links inside them, which means that users who click on them are immediately taken to another website. Unfortunately, not all these websites are associated with the product that is being advertised.
Even though the majority of users start seeing advertisements immediately after FirstFlix enters their systems, there are users who do not even know that this program is responsible for all those ads they see on the screen. We cannot blame those users because it is known that FirstFlix might enter systems without permission too. Users can be sure that they have this adware installed if they can find its folder in %PROGRMAFILES% (%PROGRAMFILES(x86)%). More experienced users will also be able to find new registry keys in the system registry: [HKCU/HKLM]SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\FirstFlix and [HKCU/HKLM]SOFTWARE\FirstFlix.
It is not very easy to delete FirstFlix, so we are going to help you with that. Below you will find the manual removal instructions, and you should follow them step by step. Unfortunately, you will also have to reset your DNS settings too. Our instructions will help you to do that as well. Less experienced users can leave this job for a trustworthy antimalware tool, such as SpyHunter. This tool will not only erase an ad-supported program, but will also reset the DNS settings for you within seconds. Last but not least, it will make other additional undesirable programs disappear.
