If you have downloaded the Mediafinder extension onto your Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers, there is no doubt that General Crawler plugin has been activated as well. Did you agree to install this application onto your own web browsers? It is most likely that you have not because this additional program, which serves a highly important purpose, is not represented during the installation of the program. Needless to say, if you have downloaded the application onto your PC, you probably have no idea that the extension is not running on your browsers because your attention is most likely focused on the program itself. Do you use the program to browse, search and download Video, Audio, Image files and other software? Then you need to continue reading to learn why you may want to delete Mediafinder from the PC.

Mediafinder is offered at, and the promotional information presented on this page suggests that the application is the most beneficial and useful file-downloading application you could install. Needless to say, this program may enable the installation of illegal files, including illicit DVD and MP3 rips. As you may know already, such activity is punishable by law, which is why we certainly do not recommended using Mediafinder to acquire illegal programs and files. We also recommend that you delete General Crawler if you do not want this browser add-on to collect information regarding your web browsing history. Even though neither the file-sharing application nor the plugin helping it locate links to file-sharing sites are considered to be malicious, we advise that you eliminate advertisement supported programs without any hesitation. As you may have discovered, ads are presented via the interface of the program, and there is no way of telling whether you could trust these ads.

If you do not want to get into trouble for downloading pirated files or software and you do not wish some unauthorized plugin to use your virtual activity to enhance potentially illicit services, we advise that you remove Mediafinder from the Windows operating system. Use automatic malware removal software which will delete adware from your personal computer. If you wish, you can also delete Mediafinder and General Crawler using the manual removal instructions which you can find below. We recommend using a reliable spyware scanner to help you identify other potentially existing threats if you choose the manual removal option.
