Do you know what FiziPop is?
FiziPop is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that works only on the Internet Explorer browser. The application is available on fizipop.com, which is its official website. Apparently, the site contains lots of various games that you can play online and free of charge. The problem is that if you want to play games from the premium section, you have to install this PUP. The program will show you advertisements, and if you click them, you will be redirected to third-party sites. Naturally, the PUP’s creators should receive advertising revenue per click, and you might land on harmful web pages. The way we see it, there are tons of sites with free games where you do not have to install any suspicious software, so FiziPop is not worth to be kept on your system. If you think the same way, you can slide below the text and take a look at the removal instructions.
Our specialists say that the application could be downloaded from the official website, but it might come bundled with other software too. If you visited fizipop.com, you probably entered the premium section where you should have been suggested to download the PUP if you wish to play the selected games. In this case, you agreed yourself to install the application, but some users might have visited a doubtful file-sharing site and downloaded a bundled installer. Once the installer is launched, you should see a setup wizard that might suggest you to install more programs, such as FiziPop and others. Many users skip through the installation wizard’s steps and fail to notice the bundled suggestions. If this situation seems familiar to you, then you might have downloaded the PUP just like that without even realizing it.FiziPop screenshot

In non-techie terms:
The application itself is not that harmful as it cannot infect your computer or damage it in some way, but it provides unreliable third-party advertising. You could try to avoid the ads, but it seems easier to remove the PUP from your system.
