- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
There are many types of adware applications – some can be downloaded directly from their homepages, some enter your system surreptitiously, along with other unwanted applications. OMGMusicPlus is the latter. It is an adware program that is often bundled with videoDownloader freeware application. Unless you remove OMGMusicPlus from your computer through and through, the program will continue generating annoying commercial advertisements whenever you browse online shopping websites. Any security-minded computer user will want OMGMusicPlus off his/her computer, and you should definitely not keep the application in your system, because it is related to a variety of computer safety issues.
It is important to establish that adware applications are not malicious computer threats. That is so, because users often install them willingly, and they can also be removed from the PC without any leftovers. However, the problem with OMGMusicPlus is that users seldom notice that this application has been installed. That is so, because the application is just part of the videoDownloader setup (downloaded via InstallVibes installer/bundler) and it comes together with other additional programs such as Plus HD, PcBackup, MySearchDial, Optimizer Pro and so on. Considering the fact, that most of the aforementioned programs are considered potential computer security threats, OMGMusicPlus is also of no exception.
The reason why OMGMusicPlus displays ads and deal offers on merchandise websites is not because it wants to help you save money. On the contrary – it wants to MAKE money by redirecting you to affiliated websites that thrive on pay-per-click system. OMGMusicPlus does not try to steal your money or anything, because if you help its creators to generate financial profits, you do it willingly (albeit unknowingly). Also, you should not forget the fact that OMGMusicPlus collects data on what websites you visit and what you search for online in order to generate your online profile.
The online profile is necessary in order to customize OMGMusicPlus ads for you. This way it may seem that the commercial advertisements are trying to offer you exactly what you want or need. However, that is only a trick to push you into clicking the advertisement. Once you do that, you automatically generate money for OMGMusicPlus’s creators.
What is more, the OMGMusicPlus pop-ups are not 100% safe. This adware application does not have an advertising network of its own, so it needs to rely on a third party network for the pop-up content. As a result, anyone (who know how to) can exploit OMGMusicPlus to promote their corrupted content and in the long run you might be exposed to serious computer threats.
Before any of that happens, remove OMGMusicPlus from your computer and invest in a reliable antimalware tool to safeguard your PC from harm. Make sure you scan the PC after manual OMGMusicPlus removal, because the application is bound to leave some files behind, and you should not tolerate any leftovers.
