There are two ways to install Skyrocket Player. Users either download this potentially unwanted program (PUP) from its official website, skyrocketplayer.com, or they acquire it bundled with third-party software. As our research shows, the third-party programs installed along with this program can be malicious, which is why you have to research them as well. Even though potentially unwanted programs are not considered to be extremely malicious, there are a few things you need to know about this program. We are sure that if you read this report you will choose to delete Skyrocket Player. After all, this program is not beneficial and does not work the way users expect it to. On top of that, you might encounter certain security issues if you do not remove this PUP.
Did you know that Skyrocket Player has a clone that users are advised to delete as well? PlayThru Player is introduced to computer users using the same information, which is why we believe both of these programs serve the same purpose and are controlled by the same company. When researching PlayThru Player, it was found that the developer of this potentially unwanted program is known for creating malicious and advertisement-supported programs that require removal. Needless to say, it is highly unlikely that malware creators would suddenly change their ways and start releasing beneficial and reliable programs. Having said that, we do not have enough information to claim that the developers of Skyrocket Player are malicious. Despite that, we still advise removing Skyrocket Player because of the content that this program introduces to users.
Our researchers have found that Skyrocket Player has the potential to show commercial advertisements and pop-ups. Interacting with this kind of content can be dangerous because all ads are meant to route users to some kind of third-party sites, and it is possible that these sites will not be reliable. Some users also think that they should remove Skyrocket Player as a browser hijacker because it replaces their regular search tools with Yahoo Search. The reality is that this search tool is offered as an optional addition, and all users are allowed to decline this addition. Of course, in our eyes, the most important reason to delete Skyrocket Player is its inability to offer beneficial services. Even though this media player is promoted as a useful tool, in reality, it does not work as well as users would like it to. To be fair, Skyrocket Player is a new program, and it could become more beneficial in the future.
