Do you know what SysPlayer is?
Users are made to believe that SysPlayer is a “free, fast and extremely lightweight media player.” Most users, however, identify it as an irritating program that showcases third-party ads. Due to this, our research team recognizes the program created by Goobzo Ltd as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Regardless of how this program reaches your operating system, it is likely that you will encounter “Ads by SysPlayer” advertisements, and clicking on them can be dangerous. The strangest thing is that the PUP does not provide any information about the ads that you might encounter, which means that Goobzo might be hiding this information. We believe that this is enough to remove SysPlayer. If you need more reasons to delete this PUP, continue reading this report.SysPlayer screenshot

Even though the information on sysplayer.com suggests that SysPlayer is safe to use, we would not call a program that can show ads without any warning to be reliable. In fact, we have reason to believe that this potentially unwanted program was created to show ads, in which case it deserves immediate removal. For example, SysPlayer is a clone of the infamous HDQPlayer, and both of these programs display pop-up ads as well as open advertisements in new tab pages. Needless to say, the incentive for the developers of these ad-supported programs to inject ads is the profit that can be generated. If you interact with the ads that are shown to you, the developers of the PUP are likely to earn money. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that all ads shown to you will be reliable, which is another reason to delete SysPlayer from your operating system. It is also wise to remove this program if you do not want it to track your activity and share the information about your browsing behavior with unfamiliar parties.
Even though SysPlayer is quite complex, the removal of this program is usually straightforward. All you need to do is uninstall SysPlayer using the guide below and examine your operating system with a trusted malware scanner to make sure that you have not left any files behind. If leftovers are detected, remove them as soon as possible. If you have downloaded this PUP bundled with other suspicious programs, the scanner will examine them as well. If you cannot delete SysPlayer and malicious programs manually or you cannot take care of the protection of your operating system, it is high time you installed an authentic security tool. Make sure that you install reliable software onto your operating system; otherwise, you will have to delete even more unreliable programs.
