People who are tired of clicking on the Repeat button placed on YouTube, Dailymotion, MegaVideo, and Metacafe, might find FLV Blaster application useful. Many people think that it is very useful because this program promises to help them to download music and videos from different web pages, and thus store those files on the computer. It means that you will be able to listen to the music and watch various videos straight from your desktop. On top of that, you will not need to click on the Repeat button when you want to listen to the song or watch the video again. There is no doubt that FLV Blaster seems to be a very beneficial and useful program; however, it is far from being perfect. Specialists working at pcthreat.com even classify it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). There are several reasons for that. We are going to present them in this article. On top of that, we will explain you how to erase this program in case you do not like how it acts.
It seems that this program will really help you to download songs and videos from YouTube, Dailymotion, and other popular websites; however, it is definitely not “100% spyware and malware safe” as it claims to be. Our security specialists have noticed that this potentially unwanted program can install such untrustworthy applications as FindWide Toolbar, and a bunch of adware programs that belong to the MultiPlug family on your system. What is more, our researchers have found complains that FLV Blaster shows ads. Our researchers think that this is quite possible because this program installs extensions to all the browsers and might show ads through them. It seems that they will appear on the program itself only, so you should not see them while surfing the Internet. These ads might look completely harmless, but we still do not recommend clicking on them because you might be exposed to potential threats.
Users do not always download FLV Blaster themselves because this program often travels bundled with undesirable programs too. If you cannot remember downloading and installing this software yourself, there is a very huge possibility that a bunch of untrustworthy software has been installed alongside FLV Blaster. In our opinion, FLV Blaster travels bundled with other PUPs, adware, and, probably, hijackers. They are not as dangerous as Trojans, ransomware, and rootkits, but we still suggest erasing them because they might act in an unwanted way, use your PC’s resources, and even attract other infections. If you do not want to encounter any kinds of threats in the future, you have to take care of your system’s safety. The easiest way to do that is to install a security tool on the system.
Of course, FLV Blaster is not a very serious computer infection, but we cannot say that it is very trustworthy too. Therefore, we have prepared the manual removal instructions and encourage you to erase this program as soon as possible. Other similar reliable tools exist, so it is better to install another program instead of FLV Blaster. Do not forget that other threats might be installed too, so it is not enough to delete this potentially unwanted program manually. You should check Control Panel and the Add-ons Manager to check whether your system contains suspicious software; however, it is very likely that you will miss some kind of program. You can easily detect all the existing threats with the help of an antimalware tool.
