What is videosMediaPlayers+?

videosmediaplayers+ is a potentially unwanted adware program that injects ads into the user's browser. This includes inserting into web pages or displaying ads over parts of existing web page advertisements, banners, coupons or text links that would not otherwise appear. It will communicate with the adware's servers to check for new offers and the placement of offers as well as monitoring and recording the domain name of each page the user views, the advertisements that appear on these pages and the ads the user clicks on.

In addition the app may display alerts and popups for updating or installing new applications many of which are ad-supported browser extensions.


During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up (this is typically done to avoid any UAC prompts). It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. Once installed, it will add an extension to both the Firefox and Chrome web browsers. The main program executable is utils.exe. Typically most users end up uninstalling this just after a few days. The software installer includes 25 files and is usually about 18.98 MB (19,905,317 bytes).
  • Possible malware installed by this program
  • Automatically starts with Windows
  • Runs in the Firefox, Chrome and Firefox web browsers
  • Known to include offers within the setup
  • Injects advertisements unassociated with the underlying web page
  • The experts agree, you should remove it!
