VIDKit is a potentially unwanted program that must have entered your system in a software package. This program is supposed to be a very convenient video player that supports a wide range of formats. However, since the program gets installed on your PC behind your back, you should not even think about keeping VIDKit on-board. Your job right now is to remove this application and then safeguard your system against similar intruders in the future. The best way to ensure that unwanted programs do not enter your PC is to invest in a legitimate computer security application of your choice.
Our researchers say that the official website for this application is located at vidpot.tv. However, this page looks nothing like your average homepage, one that would provide you with a download link and basic information on the application. In reality, vidpot.tv is a forum where users are supposed to share files and information about this program. This forum does not seem to be active, though. There are only a few topics present, and only one of them informs you about VIDKit. It says that this media player is very “light,” meaning it does not take much space on your computer. Also, it goes on to say that VIDKit can play almost any format because it has a comprehensive codec pack included.
However, everything is not as good as it might seem. VIDKit is directly associated with SMPlayer, and our research proves that this program comes bundled with the DNS Keeper adware. This adware application tricks unsuspecting users into installing it, promising them functions it cannot deliver. Once the adware program is on the target system, it starts displaying annoying commercial advertisements, and VIDKit might as well be part of the entire scheme. Just because this player looks harmless does not mean you can trust it.
Whenever you have to deal with a program that enters your system without your permission, you should not give it a second chance. There is no telling who could exploit the application for their malicious objectives, so you should protect yourself and your PC from potential harm by removing VIDKit today.
Please take note, however, that the program has an elaborate entry in the list of installed applications, so, when you open your Control Panel to delete the application, it will be listed under the name of “VIDPot.tv Survival Kit version 1.” This is the program you need to uninstall to get rid of the player. What’s more, you have to terminate all the other unwanted applications that might eventually lead to severe computer security issues.
How can you know which programs must be removed? Scan your PC with the SpyHunter free scanner and you will see a full list of all the potential threats currently residing on your system. Afterwards, make sure you delete them all immediately. If you cannot terminate some of the applications manually, be sure to delete them automatically.
