DynamicMedia is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that may be installed on the computer system through various bundled free software which PC users download from unreliable download websites. DynamicMedia may be installed on the computer system as an additional application to freeware, or unknowingly without the PC user's permission. The creators of DynamicMedia may also use the pay-per-install technique to spread and install it on the PC. The pay-per-install method may be used to spread not only DynamicMedia but also other security threats such as unwanted toolbars, add-ons, plug-ins, adware and browser hijackers. Once installed, DynamicMedia may change the default browser settings on the computer and show annoying pop-up ads and messages with the goal to possibly generate advertising income.
