Although PUPs may usually travel in freeware bundles that might contain additional malware infections, QuickVideoPlayer seems to be mostly spread through its official website, which you can find at quickvideoplayer.com. The website looks all professional and makes you feel like the promoted software must be a decent one. But you will be disappointed once you try to download it. Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome blocks the installer download right away. At least, if you keep your browsers up-to-date, they do that. This already makes you wonder if this software is really worth all the fuss. Then you try to download it in Internet Explorer, and success! Though you will not be happy too long because as you start installing it, even Windows Defender will give you a warning about the file being malware. If you have a third-party security tool safeguarding your PC, most probably, that will have a say too. All in all, it is a really suspicious way to get a legitimate-looking application installed.
This PUP is supposed to be a media player that can help you organize your music and video files, watch online content as well as offline videos, and even create a professional montage presentation. Although it all sounds great, the truth is it did not even play a simple .mp3 file we tried to listen to. Once installed, this program makes sure it can autostart with Windows and it may also display commercial pop-ups occasionally. Since there are too many question marks with regard to the behavior of QuickVideoPlayer, we recommend deleting it from your system.
When you have reached the conclusion that you want to get rid of QuickVideoPlayer, obviously, you would like to do it as fast as you can and as simply as possible. Well, we have good news and bad news. The thing is, there is a simple, manual way, but there is no guarantee that all the components will be cleared.
