We all listen to music, and we all love tools that make the experience better. Search4Musix offers just that; however, it cannot deliver. Although it is presented as a useful tool, our research team classifies it as a potentially unwanted program, or PUP. Without a doubt, a tool that cannot offer beneficial services is not worth keeping around, and so we suggest removing Search4Musix without further hesitation. If you are surprised by this, you must think that the program can be useful. We suggest reading the report to learn more about it. Once you do that, you can make up your own mind about whether or not you want to eliminate the suspicious extension. If your mind is made up already, and you are sure you want to delete the PUP, you can find the instructions you are after below. Note that these instructions show how to eliminate the extension from Chrome and Firefox web browsers, but if you have downloaded it onto a different browser, post a comment below, and we will assist you ASAP.
At the time of research, Search4Musix was compatible with Chrome and Firefox browsers only, and users could download it from the official website, elp.search4musix.com, or the Chrome web store, chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/search4musix/ekmplcjdhaakjjibpcppbncdbglklcbp. Chrome users are informed by the installer that the extension can read/change data, communicate with other sites, and even change search settings to blpsearch.com. Unfortunately, most users are pretty careless during the installation process, and they often click through without fully familiarizing with the provided info. If you install Search4Musix without realizing that it changes search settings, you might recognize it as a browser hijacker. Overall, the modified search settings might be the main reason to remove the PUP because blpsearch.com is not exactly a reliable search tool. For example, if you enter keywords into the address bar, you are redirected via blpsearch.com to search.yahoo.com, and, unfortunately, the results can be modified to include sponsored links and advertisements. This is certainly something you need to look into seriously, and that is why we suggest deleting the PUP.
What about the Search4Musix search feature that should make it easier for you to find music? If you enter the letter “M” into the address bar and then hit the Tab/Space key, you activate the search feature, and you can enter ant song or artist you are interested in. After this, you are automatically redirected to aztmusic.com, and although it looks like a legitimate music streaming website, it is not. It simply shows YouTube videos that correspond to the songs you want to play. Basically, Search4Musix is useless, and you can get the same service by going to youtube.com and entering the name of the artist or song into the search field on the website. This is yet another reason to delete the potentially unwanted program from your web browser. Finally, we suggest eliminating the program because it can track information about you and, potentially, share it with third-party advertisers. Some services and applications collect data to enhance services, but other do it for unknown reasons, and we believe that the PUP does not deserve to have access to any information about you, considering that it does not offer anything in return for it. So, are you ready to remove the PUP?
As you can see, the elimination process is very simple, and all you have to do is find the extension and click “Remove.” The problem is that many users who download the PUP often let in other questionable pieces as well. If you do not know if you need to delete Search4Musix along with other infections, we suggest installing a reliable malware scanner to figure it out. What if other threats are found? If they are, you need to figure out what you want to do: Will you try to remove all of them manually, or will you install an anti-malware program? We suggest doing the latter because you can use the protection offered by this program for a long time to come. Also, it can take the burden off your shoulders because it can detect and delete every single infection automatically.
