Dangerous: Viewpoint Media Player!
As I turned on my computer today, McAfee gave me a nice little notice that "ViewMngr.exe" was trying to access the Internet. This not being my first encounter with Viewpoint, I knew to block the Hell out of it. Of course, I wondered "Where did I get such software?" I ran Ad-Aware, Spybot, and various Microsoft scanners... all that came up were tracking cookies. I thought "Maybe Viewpoint removed itself once it realized that I wasn't going to allow it get to the Internet." Sure enough, in the Program Files folder rested a little folder called "Viewpoint" which contained a thirteen megabyte "Viewpoint Media Player" and a half megabyte "Viewpoint Manager." The Return of the Media Player. This was my third dual with the demon. Instead of simply removing it, I wanted to know the cause - something that everyone should know and will by reading this article.
