What is CinemaP-1.4?

CinemaP-1.4 is a misleading browser plug-in and you should stay away from it if cyber security is an important matter to you. It has recently been labeled as an adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP) due to the fact that it relies on bundling distribution method and usually infiltrates random computers without asking direct user’s permission. In addition to that, it may be responsible for various system modifications, slow downs, commercial advertisements on each of your web browsers and constant redirects to suspicious-looking websites. You may start seeing ‘Ads by CinemaP-1.4’ right after installation of a freeware, such as download manager or video player. Beware that such and similar programs serve for affiliate marketing and helps various third parties to collect sale leads, increase page ranking, generate pay-per-click revenue or spread other potentially unwanted programs. Thus, we recommend removing this program as soon as you notice CinemaP-1.4 ads on each of your web browser because after clicking on them you may be forced to visit questionable websites where you may be tricked into installing another adware or even malware. Not to mention, this suspicious program is capable of monitoring non-personally identifiable information related to your browsing habits and transmitting it to other third parties. To sum up, if you have already noticed that this questionable program works on the background of your system, we recommend removing it immediately with a help of a reputable anti-spyware, such as Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego, because most of its ads include suspicious links that may lead you to unsafe website.

How can CinemaP-1.4 hijack my computer?

Before finding out how to remove CinemaP-1.4 virus from your computer, you should understand how such and similar programs manage to get inside users’ computers in order to prevent similar infiltrations in the future. The majority of potentially unwanted programs are promoted on their official sites and can be easily downloaded there. Unfortunately, CinemaP-1.4 doesn’t have its official site. It means that there is another way, which allows spreading this adware widely. In fact, the majority of computers has been infected after installing a free software, such as download manager, PDF creator, video or music player and so on. That’s because it uses bundling and travels attached to the main installer of various free programs. Thankfully, developers of freewares have left us a possibility to install their products without additional components. For that, you only have to dedicate some extra time for the installation process. We recommend selecting Advanced or Custom installation option and inspecting everything carefully in order to spot check boxes claiming that you accept to install additional components, such as CinemaP-1.4. If you have already installed this program and feel bothered by its ads and redirects, you should not keep it any longer.
