Google Chrome users install Muzik Trak because they believe that this program can keep them updated on the latest music and music news. In the past, this suspicious extension was compatible with Firefox; however, at the moment, it is active on Chrome only. Besides being promoted on the official website set up by APN, LLC, it is also available on the Chrome web store. Not all users will learn about this program by visiting chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/muzik-trak/dldpaeamibmikhbfdnooilhhokbagole or its official website. According to our researchers, many users will encounter this program via pop-ups. An installer promoting the suspicious extension could be masked behind an attractive offer, or it could be introduced to you in a very appealing manner. However this program has entered your operating system and your Chrome browser, we suggest deleting Muzik Trak ASAP.
The official installer of Muzik Trak can be found at muziktrak.thewhizproducts.com. Thewhizproducts.com is the domain that is known for providing the installers of various suspicious programs, including Muzik Fury and Seen On Screen. Our research has revealed that these programs are extremely similar, as all of them are controlled by the same party. Unsurprisingly, all of these suspicious programs promote MySearch (search.mysearch.com). If you install the extension onto Chrome, you will discover that your default search engine and New Tab are set to represent this search tool. You might even think that your homepage was hijacked by this search tool because it sets New Tab to open on startup. If you choose to modify these settings via the chrome://settings/ menu, you will find that your search tools are controlled by the extension. This means that you cannot use this extension without the search tool, and that is very strange. Considering that this search tool is unreliable, you have another reason to remove Muzik Trak.
Unfortunately, some users continue trusting Muzik Trak even after they learn that the search tool that comes packaged with it is highly unpredictable and potentially malicious. This is due to the fact that this program provides links to authentic websites. iHeartRadion, Pandora, Spotify, Facebook, Amazon, Wikipedia, Twitter, and other popular services become easily accessible if you install the PUP onto your computer. The PUP is a term that is used to classify potentially unwanted programs. We call Muzik Trak a PUP because it forces a suspicious search tool upon users. Although the links presented by this program seem authentic, your interaction with them could be recorded and analyzed to assist third-party advertisers. Due to this, we suggest removing this PUP from your operating system and using your own browser bar (e.g., the “bookmarks bar” on Chrome) to attach links to your preferred websites.
If you are worried that you will not be able to remove Muzik Trak from your operating system, we have good news for you. This potentially unwanted program can be eliminated just like any other unwanted Chrome extension. Even if you have not dealt with unwanted extensions in the past, we are sure that you will be able to eliminate this one without much trouble. For your convenience, we have broken down the removal process into steps that are very easy to follow. All in all, even if you manage to eliminate this unwanted program, it does not mean that your operating system is secure. We advise using anti-malware software to have unwanted programs erased automatically and your operating system protected reliably.
