FVP Image Viewer

FVP Image Viewer is an application that is usually classified as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) by many researchers. It means that FVP Image Viewer is not a 100% reliable application. Unfortunately, thousands of users have already installed it despite the fact that it is considered to be an untrustworthy piece of software. We cannot blame them for that because FVP Image Viewer really looks like a beneficial application. We have visited its official website fvpimageviewer.com and found that this program promises to help users view images in a convenient way. It also says that it can even open very large images in the blink of an eye. Last but not least, FVP Image Viewer claims that it will support 68 formats (e.g. JPG/BMP/PNG/PSD/RAW/WEBP). FVP Image Viewer looks like a really useful program at first glance; however we do not think that it is a good idea to keep it when there are hundreds of other similar reliable programs available on the web. If you decide to get rid of FVP Image Viewer after reading through this article, use instructions you will find below.

The first suspicious fact about FVP Image Viewer is that it is developed by the company which has released Picexa (potentially unwanted application), yoursearching.com (browser hijacker), and omiga-plus.com (browser hijacker). Secondly, research carried out by the specialists at pcthreat.com has shown that FVP Image Viewer might download other untrustworthy programs on your computer if you keep it for a long time. We do not know exactly which programs it tends to install; however, we are 100% sure that it might be responsible for the presence of yessearches.com and universalsearches.com, which are known to be browser hijackers, on your system. You will probably not even notice their presence on your browsers because FVP Image Viewer uses its own search engine Search.fvpimageviewer.com. It will affect Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. There is a possibility that you were informed about these changes but simply did not notice that.

Researchers at pcthreat.com tend to put FVP Image Viewer into the category of potentially unwanted programs also because it always starts together with Windows and does different activities. Of course, users are not informed that it will start working from the second their Windows loads up. It has been observed that FVP Image Viewer creates a value “FVP Image Viewer” in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Run (32-bit Windows) or HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Run (64-bit Windows) in order to be able to act like that. If you do not want to allow FVP Image Viewer to act behind your back day after day, you should delete it completely. Users who have found FVP Image Viewer useless and are not going to open it again should get rid of it too because it will launch and perform activities even if you do not use it or open it yourself.

We have also checked the Privacy Policy available on fvpimageviewer.com. Research has shown that FVP Image Viewer will not collect any details that are called “sensitive data”; however, it might record details about the device and network primarily. FVP Image Viewer will not violate your privacy, but it is still better to remove this program. We have already told you why it is so above. After you remove FVP Image Viewer, its main directory FVP will disappear from %PROGRAMFILES% or %PROGRAMFILES(x86)% (depending on the version of Windows). Unfortunately, it is not so easy to recognize suspicious software and thus prevent it from entering the system. Therefore, we highly recommend that you install a security tool on your computer and always keep it active.

FVP Image Viewer it not a bad piece of software; however, it is still smart to get rid of it and find another image viewer. Instructions which you will find below will help you to get rid of FVP Image Viewer via Control Panel. Unfortunately, there is a huge possibility that its search engine search.fvpimageviewer.com will not disappear anywhere. If you see it, reset your browsers and you will not see it again. If you do not have time to delete FVP Image Viewer and its search engine yourself, scan your system with an automatic malware remover, e.g. SpyHunter.
