I wrote this article to help you remove musicFinder Search. This musicFinder Search removal guide works for all Windows versions.

The musicFinder Search app is not helpful. It is supposed to be an optimized music search engine but it falls short on that promise. In fact, it is categorized as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and it is dangerous. PUPs are not something you would enjoy having on your machine. They are annoying, meddlesome, and bring nothing but negatives. musicFinder Search is no different so do not expect it to be useful. It will not.

Instead, see right through the empty promises it makes, and delete it from your machine as soon as possible. Trust us, if you leave it be, you will regret it sooner rather than later. Such pests eventually get out of control and cause even more damage. Do yourself a favor and clean your PC before some of this damage become irreversible. Do not procrastinate. This is the best course of action you can take. Take it!

The PUP, once in, doesn’t waste time. Problems start pouring immediately after infiltration. musicFinder Search infects all of your browsers and injects them with countless commercials. Do not imagine an ad or two. No, the infection drowns you in a sea of adverts. Even the pages which used to be ad-free are now completely covered with banners, coupons, deals, offers, in texts, video ads, etc. and etc. You cannot load any page without being forced to see countless advertisements. In fact, the ads are so many and so persistent that your browsers struggle to display any content correctly. Imagine getting any work done in such conditions. It is impossible.

How did you get infected with musicFinder Search? Did you download it on purpose? If you did, well, you have your answer. But if you didn’t, how did the PUP enter? The answer to this question is simple. The infections tricked you into giving it permission to get in because, otherwise, it can`t. It used one of the well-known infiltration tactics like freeware bundles, spam email messages, fake program updates, corrupted links, fake torrents, etc. The real problem is that you were too distracted to notice it on time.
