Logging onto crunchyroll I reached this landing page, asking me to try the new media player and automatically starting the download for it, I wanted to give it a go so I finished the download and installed it... I now think it's fake as it doesn't do anything when you execute the file.

now my browser will force me on the same page even after refreshing and restarting my browser multiple times on www.crunchyroll.com, clicking anywhere else on the site will take me to a network error page.

If it is a fake could anyone give me any tips on getting rid of this program? I can't delete it off my desktop, and I hope this helps anyone with the same issue,

Thanks

Do not download or install the CrunchyViewer program. It is picked up as a Trojan by Windows Defender, and Virus-Total shows it as infected.

My Norton rejects it outright.

It is NOT legit!
Do not use it, Crunchyroll has no affiliation to the "desktop application"
Confirmed through a rep.

It's ransomware that will encrypt your harddrive after you reboot and demand money to decrypt it.

Do not reboot your computer whatever the heck you do or you will be locked out of everything and forced to pay somebody money. In the meantime back up all of your important files: pictures, game data, etc onto an external drive. Try to find a fix to remove the program, if you can't after backing up everything it might be a good time to reformat your computer....
