What is Fireplayer Ads? And how does it work?
Fireplayer Ads is an ad-supported program categorized as an adware which means that it displays all kinds of ads including suspicious ones and sponsored results. As usual, its main purpose is to gain revenue from pay-per-click ads and links. If installed, Firepayer Ads is quick to launch a background system process that initiates a connection to an adware server. After the connection to the adware server is established, every time you browse the internet, you will be often interrupted by intrusive ads and pop-ups. It does not only cause annoyance on your part but it can also lag your computer and can cause your browser to crash.
Distinguishing Fireplayer Ads is not that hard even if its icon does not show up on your computer’s desktop and tends to run in the background, there are still recognizable symptoms that are not hard to miss. One of these symptoms is the slowing down of your computer’s performance. And you will notice a sudden increase on your CPU usage.
How is Fireplayer Ads distributed?
Fireplayer Ads can be tucked inside some popular freeware or shareware bundles downloaded from free sharing sites. Cyber criminals take advantage of the fact that most users choose the quick installation process instead of the Custom or Advanced ones. This can result to an installation of extra programs you know nothing about. These kinds of programs are mostly unwanted and can do potential harm to your computer just like Fireplayer Ads.
