How To Remove MPlayerPlus_01

Just found a new adware variant called MPlayerplus_01. You might have found it in the Windows Task Manager where it appears as Mplayerplus_01-nova.exe or when inspecting the add-ons in Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox:

Mplayerplus_01 0.94.34 Firefox

Update 2014-05-22: There seems to be another variant around called MPP, that uses filenames such as MPP-bho64.dll, MPP-bho.dll, MPP-codedownloader.exe, MPP-novainstaller.exe, MPP-nova.exe and MPP-bg.exe.

Update 2014-05-26: Just found another variant. It is called MPMP.

Update 2014-05-27: Seems like the MPlayerPlus_01 constantly updates its name. I’ll list any future name here:

  • MediaPlayer+
  • Media_play_er+

I found MPlayerplus_01 while checking out a free media player download. In my case the installer disclosed that MPlayerplus_01 was bundled. Currently only a few anti-virus programs flag MPlayerplus_01:

MPlayerplus_01 is reported as CrossRider by Virus Total

The anti-virus vendors report MPlayerPlus as CrossRider.

How did you get MPlayerplus_01 on your machine? Was it bundled with some free downloads, and if so, was it disclosed that MPlayerplus_01 would be installed along with the download?

Removing MPlayerplus_01 with FreeFixer is a piece of cake. All you need to do is to select the MPlayerplus_01 files for removal and click the Fix button.
