Do you want to listen to music for free? If you do, Ultra Music Search might seem like the right extension to install onto your Google Chrome browser. Unfortunately, it is just another potentially unwanted program (PUP), and its services are highly questionable. When you install it, the default search provider on your Google Chrome web browser is changed, and the program uses the well-known Yahoo Search to expose users to potentially unreliable links, which may include advertisements and sponsored content. On top of all that, the extension does not really offer high-quality content. Instead of presenting you with a player that would be analogous to Spotify, SoundCloud, or Grooveshark, for example, it presents you with an online player that recycles music videos from youtube.com. Without a doubt, this is not what you were looking for, and that is why you might have decided to delete Ultra Music Search. If you are still not sure if you want to remove this extension, continue reading to learn more.
Did you download Ultra Music Search from the Chrome web store? The installer of this extension can be found at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ultra-music-search/jlnigffaoljhncojcdlahoabeafbabmd. Did you download this potentially unwanted program using an unfamiliar installer? Perhaps it was introduced to you as additional freeware along with something much more desirable? If you have installed other extensions or programs along with the PUP, it is strongly advised that you scan your operating system immediately. You want to know if there are other PUPs or threats that you need to delete. Hopefully, that is not the case, and it should not be if you used the Chrome web store installer. If you used it, you must have been informed that your default search provider on the Chrome browser would be changed during the installation. If you have agreed to this, every time you enter keywords into the address bar, you are now redirected to search.yahoo.com. As we have revealed already, the results are modified by the PUP, and, therefore, cannot be trusted.
So, do you want to remove Ultra Music Search? If you do, you can use the steps listed below to do it. You also should clear browsing data to ensure that no data-trackers remain active. Overall, the removal of the potentially unwanted program is straightforward, and you should not have trouble with it. Of course, successful removal of the PUP will not solve all issues. If there are other threats, you will need to eliminate them yourself. You will also need to rethink your virtual security. Although Ultra Music Search is not one of those programs that would endanger your virtual security right away, it certainly is not a program you want installed if you do not want personal information recorded and shared in unknown ways. Have you considered employing anti-malware software to secure your operating system? If you have not, you definitely should. Note that it would delete the PUP from your browser automatically.
