- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
Users who are trying to avoid suspicious applications may want to think about removing Muzeen.com from their browser. Our researchers categorized the program as a browser hijacker since it might affect the browser by modifying particular settings like the user’s default search engine or homepage. Such changes could be enough for you to want to delete the tool, but there are other reasons to avoid using it as well. The research shows that the browser hijacker might show you modified search results, which means they could include possibly dangerous advertising content. If you want to guard your computer against any threats, it would be safer to avoid suspicious advertisements. Therefore, we advise eliminating Muzeen.com either with the instructions placed at the end of this page or with trustworthy antimalware software.
The application is targeted at French speaking users, so it might be spread only in particular regions. However, it does not mean you cannot encounter the threat if you do not speak the language. It would seem that the Muzeen.com might be distributed with bundled installers. Thus, you may have received it because you chose an unreliable file-sharing web page to download the setup file.
If you download programs only from file sharing web pages, you might be risking the computer’s safety. Torrent or other doubtful file-sharing websites cannot be trusted as some of them could bundle setup files with suspicious applications, such as Muzeen.com. Besides, there are sites that distribute malicious installers too, so it would be much safer to get the setup file from the official publisher’s website. We could also recommend using an antimalware tool since it can help you identify unreliable programs and guard the system against malware.
The application should be able to hijack Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. Most likely, it would replace user’s homepage, but there is a chance it could also alter such settings as the default search engine or new tab page. For Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, it should install an extension too. After it settles in, Muzeen.com might gather and analyze the information related to your browsing habits. Based on such data it could display more tempting ads that might be more noticeable. Still, you should know that such advertising content may come from the search engine’s third-party partners, so the software it promotes or the web pages it could redirect you too might be unreliable.
All things considered, the search engine does not seem to be an application you could regard as reliable. Therefore, if you do not want to take any chances with Muzeen.com, it would probably be best to remove the browser hijacker. For users who would like to delete the application manually on their own, we could suggest the instructions added at the end of this article. They will show you how to eliminate the software by deleting its extension or resetting the hijacked browser.
If you believe there could be other suspicious programs as well, it might be a good idea to check the system with a reliable antimalware tool too. The another variant is to simply install the security tool and use it not only to clean the system from other possible threats but also erase the browser hijacker. Additionally, we should like to remind you that if you have more questions about the application, you could leave us a message below in the comments section or write us through social media.
