MusicApp Search is a potentially unwanted program that works as a browser extension on the Chrome browser. Such programs are not dangerous computer infections, but they could be associated with specific computer security threats that you should avoid no matter what. It is clear that you need to remove MusicApp Search from your browser before this extension exposes you to dangerous content. Please scroll down to the bottom of this description for the manual removal instructions. But do not forget to invest in a licensed security tool that would protect your system from various threats in the near future.
At first glance, it would seem that there is nothing wrong with MusicApp Search. The application even has an official homepage, and you can access it via superappbox.com. The website promotes several applications that should improve your overall web browsing experience. MusicApp Search is one of the programs that you can add to Chrome via that website. Aside from this extension, there are also FilmsApp Search, FilmsApp Home, and MusicApp Home extensions. Judging from the description, we can see under MusicApp Search; the extension is there to help you “easily listen and stream the latest music of your favorite artists.”
Perhaps we would have no problem with this extension if it were you who downloaded and added it to your browser. However, more often than not, users do not understand how MusicApp Search and other similar apps arrive at their systems. We believe that there is a very good chance you accidentally added this extension to your browser when you downloaded some freeware application. Freeware apps are often promoted at file-sharing websites, and installers on those sites tend to bundle several programs together in one package. As a result, going through freeware installation blindly leads to adding a bunch of unwanted and potentially harmful applications to your computer.
Now, disregarding the fact whether the application helps you stream your favorite music, you have to remember that it entered your computer unexpectedly, and no one should tolerate programs that end up being installed on their computers against their wishes. What’s more, the moment you add MusicApp Search to your browser, it changes your default search engine. All of your search queries will be redirected to movie.eanswers.com, and then you will land on a modified Yahoo! Search page. Of course, it does not mean that Yahoo! Search has anything to do with this intruder. There are quite a lot of such programs that make use of popular search engines to make an impression that they can provide you with reliable search service.
Unfortunately, that is nothing but an act devised to make you think that MusicApp Search is a reliable application. In reality, the extension is highly vulnerable to third-party exploitation, and it could be easily misused by cyber criminals to promote their dangerous content.
The bottom line here is that you have to delete MusicApp Search from your browser as soon as possible, especially if you did not intend to have this program in the first place. After that, scan your PC with the SpyHunter free scanner to look for other potential threats that could be slowing down your system.
