Yes, this attractive app could be used as the main attraction by parties pushing software packages.

Of course, this is not a reason to delete ZX Player but rather a reason to be cautious. If you want to learn the reasons for eliminating this PUP, you will have to continue reading.
ZX Player is promoted as a media player. Officially, this application was introduced to users as a highly beneficial free program capable of playing different audio and video formats, including AVI, FLV, MOV, MP3, WAV, and XVID. Besides this, the program promised to help users play YouTube and SHOUTcast streams. If you look at the features of this program, it is not surprising that computer users download it. When it comes to functionality of this program, we have a different story. First of all, it does not actually live up to its promises, and we are sure that you can find much better, more beneficial media players.
