FusionPlayer

The last thing you want to install onto your operating system is some program incapable of providing you with beneficial services. FusionPlayer is that kind of a program, and, even though it is unlikely to be installed without your permission, you could be tricked into installing it.

ShieldFix PC Cleaner

ShieldFix PC Cleaner

ShieldFix PC Cleaner poses as a PC optimization tool, which you can use to scan your computer for free; however, you can only fix the problems by purchasing the software. After careful observation in our internal lab, it has been found that the displayed scan results may not always be trustworthy and might only serve a reason to make unsuspecting users buy the product. Thus, ShieldFix PC Cleaner has been categorized as a PUP, or potentially unwanted program.
