What is Beansplayer?

Beansplayer is a name of an application promoted as a beneficial media player. Like other media players, it should play media files users have on their computers, but, as many users find out after using it several times, it is far from those beneficial media players available on the market today. Its main drawback is that it does not work the way it should, so you will, without a doubt, not regret uninstalling this application from your computer. Since Beansplayer is far from trustworthy media players, specialists at have decided to put it into the category of potentially unwanted software. Potentially unwanted programs are, of course, not as harmful as other malicious programs, e.g. Trojans, ransomware, backdoors, etc., we get to analyze from time to time, but there is no point in keeping them installed too, especially, as in the case of Beansplayer, they do not act the way they should.test

What does Beansplayer do?

Beansplayer is advertised as a media player, so users install this application on their computers expecting that it will play various media files, e.g. music. Unfortunately, they often get disappointed after installing this program willingly on their systems because they realize that this application does not work well. Specifically speaking, it might not play all files and it might crash/freeze a lot due to bugs it contains. On top of that, it has been observed by researchers that there is no information about the developer of this program provided, its files are not signed by anyone, and it uses free libraries ( and This suggests that it could have been developed by amateurs. Beansplayer should not cause serious security and privacy-related problems for you, but there is definitely no point in keeping a program that does not work well installed. It will only occupy the space, use your PC’s resources, and will not do anything good for you. Some users say that they have started seeing ads after the installation of Beansplayer too. If you are one of them, remove this PUP without consideration because it will never become a decent program.

If you are still not sure whether or not Beansplayer is installed on your computer, you should check Control Panel. Alternatively, you can open the %PROGRAMFILES(x86)% directory. This potentially unwanted application creates a folder there when it is installed on the computer, so you will be able to find the BeansPlayer folder too if this program is active on your system. More advanced users can find out about the presence of Beansplayer by checking the system registry as well because this application creates a new registry key there: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{0DB86D3A-F3B4-4541-AD28-D31249B2AF8E}_is1.

Where does Beansplayer come from?

Our researchers could not find an official website of Beansplayer, which suggests that it is distributed in software bundles with other applications (usually free software), or it can be downloaded from a file-sharing or a torrent website. To be frank, the developers of potentially unwanted programs often employ the bundling method, so it is more likely that you downloaded and installed the entire software bundle from an untrustworthy page without a clue that a PUP is among free applications. It is not always easy to prevent undesirable software from entering the system, even for those users who are experienced, so a trustworthy automatic antimalware tool needs to be installed on all computers connected to the Internet.
