The disturbing fact is that MPlayerplus_01 can get installed on target systems silently. In other words – it does not display any kind of prompt before the installation takes place. What is more, it does not have a direct download page, so it always comes bundled with freeware applications and user might not even realize that he/she has installed MPlayerplus_01 until this application starts displaying commercial pop-ups.

In our case, MPlayerplus_01 was bundled with NewPlayer bundle that users can download when they click new media player pop-ups on random commercial websites. It might also come along via Fake Java installer and Fortunitas adware. Take note, that when you install a freeware application it is very likely that there is more than just one additional extension or plug-in included in its setup. For example, with MPlayerplus_01 you are very likely to install Re-Markit, Severe Weather Alerts, MyPcBackup, Search Protect and other unwanted applications.

Although none of these apps (MPlayerplus_01 included) are direct computer security threats, you are strongly recommended to remove MPlayerplus_01 and other applications from the system at once. A system overloaded with adware applications can become really slow, and your browsing sessions will be always interrupted by a huge amount of pop-ups and other types of commercial advertisements. Do not forget that adware and pop-ups might expose you to corrupted websites and dangerous content that may compromise your system even further.
