MusixLib Start is not a new browser extension, but, somehow, it has emerged in our cross-hairs only recently. If you are "ready to improve your experience" regarding web searches, you may think it is a good idea to have such a potentially unwanted program (PUP) in your browser. We certainly beg to differ, though. First of all, this tool only works under Google Chrome, so what if it is not your preferred browser? Well, in this case, good for you. But why not install a tool that you could actually use in any of your main browsers? This PUP changes your homepage and new tab settings as it sets its own featured search page. This tool actually is designed to promote musixlib.com, a website in which you can listen to all kinds of free online music albums streamed from YouTube, of course. Since this PUP may display potentially unreliable search results, we believe that you are better off if you remove MusixLib Start right now. For the details, please continue reading our article.
You can find the main promotional site at musixlib.com, where you need to click on the Extension menu to be able to install this tool directly. Of course, this website is filled with questionable third-party advertisements, so we warn you to be cautious where you click if you ever visit it. Another possibility for you to officially install this PUP is to land on the Chrome web store page, chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/musixlib-start/ifhnjalcekbmmeknpgnkpghldbbhanen. But somehow we have this feeling that you may not have seen any of these pages before. So how is it possible that you have this PUP in your browser and now you need to delete it?
Well, the answer is very simple. It is quite likely that you have either clicked on a corrupt third-party pop-up ad while browsing, or installed a software bundle you downloaded from a suspicious torrent or shareware site. If we have to choose, we would say that the former is definitely the less serious issue because, in that case, it is possible, though very unlikely, that you have no other infections on board. However, if you have installed a bundle recently, chances are there are multiple PUPs and malicious threats as well operating on your computer. If you want to be sure that you are using a safe computer and it is safe for you to go online, we advise you to run a reputable online malware scanner after you delete MusixLib Start from your browser.
This annoying PUP seems to be designed to promote musixlib.com, which is a free online music streaming website. You need to be careful with this site, though, because it hosts a number of third-party ads, which could be unreliable for all you know. One click on the wrong ad and you could find yourself on a new tab with a malicious website loaded or drop an infection directly. This PUP modifies your browser settings and this is how this featured search page can come up as your homepage and new tab page as well. This search engine forwards your queries through musix.searchalgo.com to a possibly modified Yahoo search results page. Unfortunately, you could be presented with unreliable promoted content there. This is why we do not advise you to use this tool at all. One click and you could infect your machine with serious threats or even land on a malicious website. No wonder why we suggest that you remove MusixLib Start as soon as you can.
If you have made you mind up about this useless PUP, you can use our instructions below to eliminate it. Do not think for a second, though, that you are all done. It is more likely that you will find several more serious threats on your system if you run a reputable malware scanner. We think that it is essential for your own protection and privacy to defend your PC against all possible potential and malicious threats. Therefore, we recommend that you start employing a reliable anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter, or any other really that you find powerful enough to do a perfect job protecting your virtual world.
