As soon as Simple Media Player enters your operating system you will be presented with disturbing warning messages within your web browser as you are surfing the web. The warning messages will most likely try to convince you that your operating system is running a suspicious program or is about to be infected. While it could look like a legitimate alert notification, you must know that, in reality, it is entirely fake and should be ignored at all times. In addition to these false and annoying alerts, this potentially unwanted program might trigger random download all by itself without any notification. Such activity could actually have devastating outcomes, to put it mildly. This is so because at times it could download browser hijacker and adware programs, which would shockingly affect your online experience in a negative way. Keeping your PC safe and secure at all times should be your utmost priority; thus a complete removal of Simple Media Player should be executed without any hesitation.

Our reports show that a lot of users get Simple Media Player, not from its official website. This signifies that vendors of this potentially unwanted program use other dubious ways of distribution. It is not surprising that we have discovered that in the majority of cases this suspicious tool is spread via software bundles.

Furthermore, you should always pay as much attention to installation procedure as possible because you might be presented with a chance to cancel the installation of some unwanted questionable program. Finally, make sure to ha a licensed malware detection and removal tool active on your PC because it provides overall system security at all times.

Make sure to remove Simple Media Player as soon as possible as it could turn out to be a major virtual threat. Once you have executed the manual removal, you should check the %APPDATA% folder and your registry system to be sure that no leftover files or registry entries related to Simple Media Player are active on your PC.
