Users download FusionPlayer thinking that this program will allow them to create media playlists using videos on their computers and the web. Unfortunately, this PUP (potentially unwanted program) does no such thing. In reality, the supposed services are only used to conceal the true nature of the program, which is to show ads. Once installed, this program will not only show ads using its own interface, but will also affect your default search provider. If you want to stop this from happening, do not install the PUP in the first place. If you already have, delete FusionPlayer from your PC using our removal guide.

The official site that was created to represent FusionPlayer is fusionplayer.com. Luckily, this source does not offer to install any other programs together with the PUP, which makes the removal process much more straightforward. However, if you acquire FusionPlayer bundled with malware – which usually happens after executing installers on unreliable sites – it is very possible that you will have to delete malicious programs. If you are not sure whether or not you need to remove FusionPlayer-related PC threats, install a malware scanner. It will inspect your operating system and give you all the details.

Just like its clone QuickVideoPlayer, FusionPlayer does not function properly. Our researchers have tested this app and have found that it does not play media files, which should be its main function. Needless to say, this should pose questions about the real intentions behind this program. Was it installed only to create an advertising platform? Unfortunately, it is likely that it was, which only supports our argument to delete FusionPlayer. Even if this PUP did not showcase malicious ads, it would be useless and annoying anyway. In fact, our researchers could not find one reason why the removal of this potentially unwanted program should be postponed.

Are you sure that the ads injected by FusionPlayer are harmless? We believe that most of them are at least unreliable. You should not pay attention to recommendations to register for unfamiliar services, nor should you install other media players that might be even more unreliable than FusionPlayer itself. Pay no attention to the ads that might show up on your default browser either. If you end up clicking on corrupted ads, you could be tricked into visiting malicious websites, and that is never good. In some cases, you might even have to delete malware after interacting with FusionPlayer ads.

How are you planning to delete FusionPlayer from your Windows operating system? Have you uninstalled this program? Well, unless you remove leftover components as well, it is likely that the irritating ads will keep showing up from time to time. If you do not know how to remove FusionPlayer leftovers, trust a malware remover to get rid of them automatically. We also recommend using this tool if you have other threats or potentially unwanted programs to worry about. Needless to say, it is much more efficient to use a tool that can delete all threats automatically than it is to find and delete them individually one by one.
