NewPlayer removal instructions
What is NewPlayer?
Created by a company called TUGUU SL, the NewPlayer app allows users to create personalized playlists by extracting video clips from the Internet and combining them with any video/audio media available on the user’s PC. While some users may find this functionality useful, the NewPlayer application is categorized as adware or a potentially unwanted application since it infiltrates computers via a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling'. Computer users often install NewPlayer inadvertently without their consent when downloading free software.
After successful installation, this program diminishes browser performance and generates intrusive ads for additional content, software, or services (labelled as "Ads by NewPlayer"). Furthermore, this plug-in tracks users' Internet browsing activity by recording browser names, operating systems, Internet service providers, and other information. Computer users should be aware that NewPlayer is not technically a virus or malware, however, clicking ads generated by this browser add-on may lead to security infections. This plug-in may also lead to privacy issues since it tracks users' Internet browsing activity.
NewPlayer adware is similar to other potentially unwanted applications, which install together with free software downloaded from the Internet. Examples include Deal Finder, Media Play AIR +, OMG Music, and BestMarkit. These browser plug-ins add no real value, and therefore, to avoid installation of such adware, be attentive when downloading freeware. Today, most free software download websites employ deceptive 'download clients' offering installation of promoted browser plug-ins together with the chosen freeware. Download clients are used to monetize free services provided by freeware download websites, and while these are mostly legitimate, they often cause unwilling installation of adware. When downloading free software, opt-out of installation of any promoted browser plug-ins by clicking the 'decline' button. Computer users who observe NewPlayer ads when surfing the Internet should use this removal guide to eliminate adware from their Internet browser/s.
