The program falls into the category of potentially unwanted programs due to the reasons that will be discussed in more detail throughout this article. So let us delve deeper into these reasons.
Before we discuss the functionality of the application and its disadvantages, let us take a moment to learn about its origins. It has an official website, called Yeaplayer.com but the website is down at the moment, so it is not be possible to download the player. We have no information about it being bundled with other applications nor is it distributed via free software sharing websites. The developer, so it still remains a mystery, but based on our research we have come to the conclusion that it is similar to Magnoplayer, which is also considered a potentially unwanted program.
YeaPlayer itself does not contain any malicious traits, and seems to work just fine. However, at some point during the installation or after, it installs adware-type applications, such as Searchult search, istartsurf.com, and a few others. These applications might be annoying at first, but eventually they will start causing trouble. Adware is used to promote shady entities who advertise all kinds of content including malicious applications. So, your computer might become infected with various Trojans, rogue programs, and other malicious programs that can cause damage to your computer, steal your personal files and identity. So, this chain of one program distributing and promoting another one might have undesirable consequences that you should obviously avoid.
We have heard reports that some anti-virus programs have detected some main files of YeaPlayer as Trojans. However, it might be a mistake and this issue should be resolved in the future. But this fact does not do this application any favors. Our research shows that the application is not malicious, but there is no reason why you should not substitute it for another application that does not install adware applications that only jeopardize system security.
If you want to remove this application manually, you can do it via the Control Panel. We have comprised a manual removal guide, which will make the process as easy as it possibly can be. But we still recommend getting a antimalware scanner that would remove any additional malicious application that might be hiding. Cyber security is of utmost importance these days, and one should not neglect it. So try to keep your computer secure with an antimalware scanner.
