How to remove (uninstall) KOOL Player

Kool Player is an adware pogram that installs on the computer without users permission.


Advertising utilities include a pretty long list of various species, but the very effective of them are browser toolbars, adware and browser hijackers. You should understand that they aren't the fine tools that advertise other reliable software - they were made to generate tons of ads. Scammers try really hard to persuade people that these programs are helpful: they describe them very well and promise incredible efficiency and benefit. To make it easier for you, we will describe the main features of each type of advertising utilities.

  • Toolbars are less irritating than browser hijackers and adware, but ads aren't their single task. They can collect the info about user's PC and about his doings on the Internet. This data is of considerable value for each advertising company.
  • Browser hijackers invite another sort of issue. Hijackers periodically open a scammer's web-page in victim's browser that passes to one of the dangerous websites.
  • Typical adware is known because of countless spam with all possible kinds of ads, pop-ups and banners. Suchlike utilities could be disguised as anything: driver updaters, media players, software for finding games and movies, system optimizers and much more. Proposals that are shown by advertising utilities aren't secure and you better not click on them.

Every of above written kinds of adware uses separate techniques to get into the system and to work inside of it. They have one common feature - they all provide problems for the user and prevent the victim from Web-surfing. Except for evident nuisance, such as the growing number of advertising and pop-ups, KOOL Player has one more perilous feature and it is the significant lowering of PC's defense.

Now, when we see why was KOOL Player, we will tell you how to detect it. The biggest and the most annoying sign of adware is the advertising overflow. The second symptom is the appearance of weird software on your computer that you haven’t downloaded. Such thing might happen when victim clicks on all links that adware displays, visiting the strange sites and loading viruses from them. If such thing happens, you might not even understand how virus penetrates the system.

The other symptom is a strong lag of the computer, and an enlargement in the boot time of the system. We should say that suchlike issues frequently appear for other reasons, not related to adware. The computer becomes slow because each advertising tool is working in the background and never stops. It means that the program is running at PC's boot and turning off only when the PC stops working. When there are too many advertising programs on the machine, their synchronous running starts to overburden the system, and takes so many resources that reliable tools simply cannot run. This can summon emergency turn-offs, retardation and fatal errors of basic services. If you witness any of these marks - you should check the hard drive via quality anti-virus or remove all viruses in manual mode.
