FLV Player

What is FLV Player?

If you do not want to have your operating Windows system and browsers infected with malware, you should not install FLV Player. Even though this application may seem beneficial to you, our researchers at Anti-Spyware-101.com have discovered that the program comes bundled with various PUPs (potentially unwanted programs) and malicious software. We certainly do not recommend that you download this program from softingo.com, and you should be careful about other programs which might be promoted through this source as well. In case you have already installed the application and now your PC and web browsers are intruded by unreliable or even malicious programs, you need to delete them right away. Please continue reading to learn more about FLV Player removal.

Why should you delete FLV Player?

FLV Player stands for Flash Video Player, and there are tens of authentic products which fall into this category; however, all of them should be installed from legitimate, official sources. Needless to say, the player in discussion is not the one you can trust because the developer Somoto Ltd. has created it to distribute third party software. If you are not cautious with the program, before you even realize your PC could be packed with undesirable software. Some of the most notable products include PC Utilities Pro – Optimizer Pro, Babylon Toolbar and Webcake. We have reported these programs in the past, and you should be extremely cautious about their activity.

As soon as you install the suspicious player onto your computer you will notice that your Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers are corrupted as well. As research shows, the FLV Player comes bundled with Babylon Search tools, which is why your home page is likely to be changed to the unreliable search.babylon.com. Note that you may also face start.search.us.com. If you perform searches on these search engines, there is a great chance that you will be exposed to links leading you to corrupted websites. If you do not want to download malware without even knowing it or get involved in online schemes, we suggest you remove Babylon Search tools right away.
