PopCorn.net

PopCorn.net, also known as Movieland and MoviePass, is a P2P program that offers a 3 day free trial download for online users. PopCorn.net takes over the whole screen and displays pop-ups to keep reminding you that payment is due following the trial.
According to PopCorn.net's terms of service, unless you cancel the service during the three-day period, the company will bill you $29.95 a month. PopCorn.net billing reminder pops up even when you're not surfing the web. PopCorn.net comes bundled with malicious files that allow it to keep popping up requests for payment, making it difficult to remove.
PopCorn.net is described by its maker as an "a new media search and download service that provides thousands of entertainment titles on demand to your desktop." You may have intentionally or unintentionally installed the Popcorn.net Download Manager trial software on your computer by clicking an advertisement on a web page.
PopCorn.net maintains that users with expired trials have entered into a binding contract and that these users now owe PopCorn.net money for the service they agreed to pay for. While their TOS is quite clear, there are no popup messages alerting users to this seemingly important detail until after their trial has expired and it is time to collect. The popups escalate in frequency until they disrupt your computing experience almost continually. In addition, PopCorn.net's Download Manager software also transmits a list of all installed programs on your computer back to the PopCorn.net organization. PopCorn.net claims that this helps them overcome any software "conflicts," but it has earned them a designation of Spyware from Schrock Innovations.
If you see these popups on your computer, you already have a PopCorn.net Download Manager account, and you MUST cancel your PopCorn.net account if you wish to discontinue service. Failure to cancel your PopCorn.net account could result in collection activities and damage to your credit report.
