MusixLib is a Google Chrome browser extension users can install from the Chrome Web Store (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/musixlib-start/ifhnjalcekbmmeknpgnkpghldbbhanen) or its official website (http://www.musixlib.com). People install this piece of software expecting that they could play albums of their favorite artists for free. We cannot blame them because MusixLib promises to give users unlimited access to music for free. In addition, it promises to enable users to perform web searches more conveniently. Of course, not all people install this add-on consciously. Some of them claim they have nothing to do with its installation, and, to be frank, we believe them because research carried out by researchers working at 411-spyware.com has clearly shown that it might travel bundled. MusixLib acts the same in all the cases, no matter users install it voluntarily, or it affects users’ browsers without their knowledge. Our specialists do not consider it very beneficial software and have even decided to categorize it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP), but you are the only one who needs to decide whether or not it can stay installed. Of course, we hope that your final decision will be to get rid of MusixLib.

It might seem that MusixLib is extremely beneficial software, but it is not what it seems to be, we can assure you. All it does is setting a new homepage and New Tab URL on users’ Google Chrome browsers. The page set contains quick-access buttons opening websites that belong to third parties. On top of that, there is a search box in the middle. All these websites can be accessed by typing their URLs in the web browser’s address bar, so you do not need to have MusixLib installed on your computer to be able to open them. The chances are high that this piece of software will also gather information about you if you keep it installed. Your search queries will be recorded as well if you use the search tool MusixLib promotes to perform web searches. Luckily, potentially unwanted applications cannot access any details that are considered sensitive information, so this piece of software should not cause you privacy-related problems. Of course, it does not mean that it is a very good idea to keep it active because it might disclose recorded information (e.g. links you click, websites you enter, and a bunch of technical details about your PC) to third parties. We do not try to convince you here that MusixLib is harmful malware because it is not; however, we still cannot let you keep it because it is not fully trustworthy software.

If you have discovered MusixLib listed in the add-ons manager, it means that you have installed this piece of software from its official website or the Chrome Web Store. On the other hand, it could have affected your Google Chrome browser without your permission after slithering onto your PC unnoticed. According to our researchers, this piece of software might travel bundled with other programs. There are hundreds of suspicious applications that are promoted the same, so you should never skip installation steps quickly when installing new software downloaded from the web and, on top of that, make sure you read all the information provided for you so that you could notice these “additional offers.” If you do not trust yourself very much, you can prevent untrustworthy software from entering your system by enabling security software on your computer. It is one of the easiest ways to prevent untrustworthy applications from slithering onto the computer unnoticed, so the sooner you acquire and install it on your PC, the better.

No matter how MusixLib has appeared on your computer, it should be removed as soon as possible because it is known to be a potentially unwanted program. These are not real threats, but they might still act in an undesirable way, so it would be best not to keep them active on the system. The MusixLib removal should not be complicated at all because it can be erased using the extensions manager. Of course, if it is the first time you are going to remove a potentially unwanted program from your computer, you should use instructions you will find right below this paragraph. Potentially unwanted software can be erased with an automated malware remover as well. You need to decide upon the removal method you are going to adopt yourself.
