NetRadio is an application that enables you to search and listen to thousands of online radio stations, but we have found a few suspicious traits about it and that is why we have labeled it as a potentially unwanted program, a PUP. The way it may infiltrate your computer silently is one of the reasons that makes this application and its intentions questionable. If you learn about all the potential risks this PUP might introduce you to, we are pretty sure that you will understand why we say you had better remove NetRadio from your computer. Please read on for more details and, of course, the solution we can offer.
Although this PUP has an official website, netradioplayer.com, and you can download the application directly from there as a standalone file, unfortunately, that is not the most common way for NetRadio to spread. It is possible that most users actually get infected with this app via freeware bundles containing malicious software installers. If you have installed free software recently, it is likely that you were not careful and visited unreliable shareware websites while looking for a source for your download. It is quite easy to get confused on those sites about buttons and links due to the fact that the pages are filled with misleading third-party ads. One click on the wrong button can result in an avalanche of unfortunate security issues if you happen to allow the whole infected bundle onto your computer. That is when it is not enough to delete NetRadio alone because you need to take care of all the malware infections as well in order to make sure your virtual security is properly restored.
This PUP can also collect information about you that may be shared with third parties. Therefore, targeted ads may be sent to your screen that can considerably increase the chance that you click on them. But we advise you to stay away from those ads since there is really no guarantee that you will not end up on a corrupted website and being scammed. If you do not want to be exposed to potential risks, you may want to consider removing NetRadio.
The solution or cure for your PUP situation is very simple: You need to find the application in the installed programs list in Control Panel and uninstall it. That will take less than a minute even if you are not an experienced computer user. You can also try to identify the other potential threats and remove them all, but not all of them may be as easy to eliminate as this one. If you want to make sure that your computer is all clean and free of infections, we suggest that you download and install a powerful antimalware application.
