What is VAF player?
VAF player is an application that allows you to collect online videos and then combine them into playlists on your PC. It is a legitimate program that does not pose any danger to your system security, but quite often VAF player is called a computer virus, because of other programs that may come bundled with it. When you install this application it should inform about the additional software, but most of the time users simply ignore that they are about to install something else as well. Also, quite often removing VAF player from your PC does not guarantee that the bundled programs will be removed as well.
Where does VAF player come from?
You can download this application from its official website at vafplayer.com. However, if you scroll down, at the bottom of the page you will see a line that says VAF player is also being distributed with a number of browser extensions, including Incredibar Toolbar, Babylon Toolbar, Funmoods Toolbar, SweetIM Toolbar, Claro Toolbar and others. A number of these toolbars are considered potentially unwanted programs, because they could be exploited by third parties and they collect certain web browsing information that users would like keep to themselves.
What does VAF player distribute?
The most disturbing fact about VAF player is that it never comes alone. Even if you download it from the official website, the player's installer will install other programs as well, such as Yontoo player or PC Optimizer Pro. If you have no intention of having these programs you can simply remove them via Control Panel, but keep in mind that security experts strongly recommend removing everything that comes with VAF player, because these applications could cause erratic computer behavior and even expose you to malware infections.
