The Essence of Flash Player Pro
Flash Player Pro is a fake video or sound player which has been created by some unscrupulous software engineers to earn huge profit. You may be confused the first time you see this software because it has almost the same name as a famous legal software Flash Player. You must be aware that every once in a few days, when you started your computer, a window would pop up to ask you to update your flash player. It’s an important software to assist you to browser web sites. If you don’t update it for a long time, when you open your web browser, pictures can’t be displayed nor videos can be played. You can only see a big X sign on every picture. However, Flash Player Pro has nothing to do with the important Flash Player software. It’s thoroughly another software which doesn’t have any important functions.
After you installed Flash Player Pro into your computer and ran it, you might be familiar with its interface. The only reason is that this software is only an imitation of some other famous video or sound players. So the interface is almost the same. In fact, it really can play some music files or video files but it’s not a good player at all. It can block you running other programs and generate many system errors. This outrage can run automatically after you started your computer. And if you try to uninstall it, nothing can be installed. You just can’t find its installation icon no matter in Control Dannel or in its parent folder.
Don’t use Flash Player Pro as your frequently-used player since it just plays the role as a malware. Further more, it can cause privacy disclosure such as some of your private photos or videos. On its homepage, it will inform you that it’s a free software. Don’t be fooled. Maybe the first time you use it, it will be free, as time goes by, it will ask you to become a member otherwise, you can’t use it any more. Of course, you can’t remove this software either. Harmful effects of Flash Player Pro can be from many aspects. Once your computer has been infected such virus, you will be painful.
