The whole premise of FusionPlayer is that it will let you create media play lists using videos on the computer and videos from the Internet. That is its hook and the incentive to install the program. The truth is, however, this is a PUP (potentially unwanted program)that is nothing more than a useless piece of software that will provide nothing more than headaches and unwanted ads. The software will show you a ton of ads, but also change your search provider. The best thing is to avoid installing FusionPlayer all together. But, if you find that it is already installed, this guide will provide tips on how to remove it from your computer.
Information about the software can be obtained from fusionplayer.com. But, the site does not actually contain any installation software. Its most favored form of distribution is to be bundled with other forms of malware. That means if you find FusionPlayer on your system there is a good bet that there are other forms of malware on you computer. Therefore, it is a good idea to install a malware scanner to see if you can catch the other issues on your machine.
FusionPlayer does not actually work the way it is advertised. Many have found that it does not actually play media files. That means its sole purpose of creation was not to provide a service. Instead it is meant to display ads and collect information from your browsing habits. And, many of the ads are for sites and services that are not that legitimate.
This means that if you do see ads from FusionPlayer, you should ignore them until you remove the software. Do not sign up for any services that are recommended by the ads. It will just cause more problems and headaches for you. There is a good chance that the ads will lead you to even more spyware and adware. And, that means even more computer cleanup.
The removal process of FusionPlayer is not too difficult, but care should be taken.
