Potentially unwanted programs like MusicStreamSearch are often spread through pop-ups, ads, or various file-sharing websites. Thus, if you want to avoid such software you have to be very cautious when you search for new programs. Firstly, we recommend choosing applications from legitimate websites only. Also, it is best if you research tools that you have not heard of before. It is vital to find out if the program was created by a reputable company. Expert and user reviews could help to determine whether a tool is safe or not too; just make sure that the reviews come from reliable sources.

Besides being careful, we also advise getting a reliable antimalware tool that could help you protect your system and keep it clean.
MusicStreamSearch works only on Google Chrome browsers. It may change your default search engine with a search website called portal.musicstreamsearch.com. As said earlier in the report, this website might redirect your search quarries to a modified Yahoo search engine. There could be a difference between search results displayed by the original and modified Yahoo search engines. For instance, the modified version could contain additional advertisements from the potentially unwanted program’s third-party partners. Also, we mentioned that MusicStreamSearch could ask for permission to read your browsing history. This quality could be unwanted as some users consider information available through their browsing history private. For example, your browsing history could show your search keywords, ads you interacted with, websites you visited, and so on. It is possible that such data could be used for marketing purposes or, to be more precise, to show you tailored content.
