Mediafinder

Mediafinder is a media downloader which is meant to help you acquire videos, MP3 and other files quicker and easier. The program is promoted at media-finder.net. Note that you may be offered to install it via mediafinderpro.com/thankyou.php as well. Even though the application offers a variety of seemingly beneficial services, we do not recommend installing it onto the computer. It has been revealed that the application comes bundled with several suspicious browser extensions. Since they are installed silently, we categorize them as intrusive and unreliable. Please continue reading to find out all about these suspicious plugins and about Mediafinder removal.

Do you think that Mediafinder will help you find any file on the internet and then download it onto your own computer? This is how the file sharing application is presented on the official download page. The program even promises you to find files using file size, file name and file age filters, which is meant to speed up the process when finding what you are looking for. Needless to say, many Windows users download it because of such services as Semantic Analysis, Advanced Search, Hi-Speed Downloads, Queue Downloads and 3rd Party Support. You certainly need to be cautious about this program; however, you need to be most cautious about the General Crawler extension.

General Crawler is presented at general-crawler.com. This is an extension which has been developed to collect data and use it to provide personalized search results. The plugin is compatible with Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers, and it is not considered to be particularly malicious. Needless to say, this extension is intrusive because it can spy on virtual activity and because it can be downloaded onto the browsers without your consent. This plugin is meant to aid Mediafinder by indicating whether a certain web page contains a link to file sharing sites or not.

You can remove Mediafinder using the manual removal instructions below. The guides will also help you delete the undesirable plugins. Unfortunately, it is impossible to delete all of these applications all at once manually.
