MVPlayer, as you can assume from the name, is a media player that actually does not play any media files. Even if it promotes itself to support “hundreds of file formats,” it does not mean it can play any. What it does instead is display third-party advertisements that might be harmful with regard to your system’s security. That is why this app has been categorized as adware. Although it may not be as dangerous as a Trojan horse, this adware program might also cause some headaches for you or even expose you to cyber criminals. Therefore, we recommend that you remove MVPlayer from your system as soon as possible.
MVPlayer is the kind of ad-supported program that wants to sell itself as a useful tool and promotes itself on its own official website at downloadmvplayer.com. But we should rather call it a web page because it is what it is – a single page. The first disappointment kicks in when you try to download the application; only, of course, if you have security software protecting your computer. In that case you can say bye-bye to MVPlayer because the installer will be deleted and quarantined before you could realize what just happened. If your PC is not protected, however, you can download the program without any problem. The question is how many users may find the website at all. What are the chances of you finding it? Not much.
That is why the creators have to be more creative and use a different method to spread their worthless product. They have to make sure that it gets to as many computers as possible. Freeware bundles are the easiest way to do so. These packages are available for download on freeware hosting sites. But these bundles are not always without danger. There may be versions that contain malware infections, such as adware programs and browser hijackers. These infectious packages are mostly hosted on suspicious file-sharing websites. You can download one simply by clicking on the wrong button or link. These sites are notorious for having fake buttons or third-party ads that look like buttons. That is why it is always advisable to double-check what software you are about to download; Google it beforehand and use a trustworthy website to download it from. If, for example, you do your research on MVPlayer, you will clearly see that half of the first results page is about removing MVPlayer. That would be a sign not to download it at all and that could save you from all the trouble.
“All’s well that ends well”, as the saying goes. So, let us share with you the solution side of the “coin.” As a matter of fact, it is very easy to say good-bye to MVPlayer since it has an uninstaller.

Please follow the steps and you will be free of this infection in a minute. Please remember that you can avoid similar malware infection attacks if you carefully select the websites you visit or use as a source for downloading software.
