Playzy is an adware application that promises you access to free games. It enters your browser as an extension. Then, Playzy creates a small icon of a gaming console controller in the bottom right corner of your browser window. When you click it, a window shows up. There, you can browse through the games Playzy offers. Once you pick one, a huge pop-up, supposedly containing the game, overtakes your screen. It’s badly made and slow. Obviously, Playzy is not very good at what it promises to do, so you should remove it as soon as possible.

Playzy is distributed via bundles of free programs. It is known to be bundled with tools like PC Optimizer Pro, classified as a potentially unwanted program by our research team. It’s likely that you weren’t paying attention while installing something and various unexpected programs found their way on your computer, Playzy among them. We think you should remove Playzy from your computer. Running a full system scan with a trusted antispyware program should also prove beneficial.

Keeping in mind that the advertised function of Playzy hardly worked on our computer, one might start wondering about the business plan of its creators. The obvious answer is that this application, made by the developers of another adware, called Wajam, makes its money by showing you commercial adverts and collecting your browsing information to make it more efficient. To put it simply, each time you click an ad provided by Playzy, its developers get some money for the increased web traffic. To stop Playzy developers making money with a piece of software that barely works, you only have to remove it immediately.

With the games Playzy offers barely working, you should probably get rid of Playzy right now. If that is not enough, you should know that according to security experts, nearly 80% of all users infected with this adware chose to remove it. You can do it automatically or manually. If you choose automatic removal, you won’t have to do anything yourself. Just run a scan with a dependable anti-spyware tool and click Fix the problem once it’s done. Software like this will find every threat on your system, and take care of it all for you. It will also keep protecting your computer in the future with real-time protection. Nevertheless, if you insist on uninstalling Playzy by yourself, instructions are provided below. Uninstalling this adware from Control Panel only removes it from Internet Explorer, so if you're using Mozilla Firefox, you will have to delete the Playzy extension yourself.
