What is KeyPlayer?

KeyPlayer is an adware web browser extension/plugin for Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome that's primary purpose is to inject advertising in the web browser using Virtue Interactive’s Advertising Modules. Advertising is injected in the form of banner ads that are automatically placed in various spots of the browser that would not normally appear. Also, advertisments may include additional display ads, coupons, popups, price comparision and in-line text hyper links. The software will add a proxy server that sits in between the browser and the internet so that it can track web pages visited and the context of the page asn inject these ads. Additionally, the plugin will modify the browser's and operating system's functionality and will install an enable the plugin using a protection feature. The protection feature will prevent 3rd party programs including anti-virus programs from disabling the ad-serving proxy server.
