Video Player ads appear in browsers which are the most vulnerable ones to adware programs and browser hijackers. In particular, we mean browsers like Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. Most often source of distribution of the installer related to this adware is through other free programs downloaded and installed by users, previously found at various free software download resources. If you are a person who regularly downloads and installs something downloaded online for free, please make sure that you don’t install any additional programs, in addition to the software that was your pick in the first place. This is why you should always use the options of custom installations, instead of the standard ones. This is where you may see what else is offered for you to be installed onto your PC as a part of the default installation. So, if you see any additional programs offered for you to be installed there – make sure you uncheck such installation options. If no such options are given – then just cancel the entire installation right away, without any doubts.
