MoviePass / Media Pipe still Trouble Computer Users

Last month we posted a free removal tutorial on our website at http://www.schrockinnovations.com/removemoviepass.php that showed our customers how to remove this software from their computers. It seems that while people have been surfing the internet, an advertisement has been appearing that offers free video content if you click on it and install some software. The next thing you know, BOOM you have Movie Pass’ Media Pipe software installed on your computer.

Of course, it is a free trial, but unfortunately you probably did not read the fine print. If you do not cancel, your computer will become a pop-up nightmare and they WILL send you a bill. Technically, its all above board, but in my opinion, this technique is deceptive and a bad business practice.

As always, watch your back and remember that there is no such thing as a free lunch… or in this case a free video.

    How may I get a copy of those proceedures. I never used this stupod software. Now I can’t get rid of the pop-ups.

    I can’t remove the moviepass license manager from my control panel. What do I do? I have tried following the instructions on the website but it doesn’t seem to work.
