Why Do I Have InstantRadioPlay Installed on My Computer?

InstantRadioPlay may have been packed with a free software product, such as a media player or a file converter. The method is known as bundling and is often employed for financial reasons. Bundling is mostly used to monetize various platforms or to cover economic losses. However, it could be bypassed by opting for the advanced software installer and unchecking additional applications.
Keep in mind that InstantRadioPlay may also be downloaded from various freeware/ shareware pages. It may be a legitimate program that promises the user helpful services, but it may seriously compromise the PC’s condition. In addition, Mindspark Interactive Network has developed many advertisement-supported apps known to affect the operational system.

Browser hijackers usually influence not only the computer’s performance, but also the Internet speed. Browser crashes and freezes may keep on happening until InstantRadioPlay is fully uninstalled.
