MusixLib Distribution Technique

Adware applications and ad-supported extensions are often downloaded alongside various free programs downloaded from the Web. The process is called bundling of software and is often employed for financial reasons. However, additional downloads could be avoided if the user opts out of automatic installation and goes for the advanced one. This is how he gets the chance to uncheck anything he does not wish to download.

MusixLib Description and Behavior

As already mentioned, MusixLib is a typical adware and as such, it is not malicious. Many users refer to it as a virus because of its intrusive behavior and unknown distribution method. Even though MusixLib is not actually a virus, it could create certain issues on an affected computer such as:

  • Display of advertisements (pop-up and pop-under ads, in-text ads)
  • Random page texts turned into hyperlinks
  • Privacy issues due to tracking cookies
  • Browser slow-downs and crashes
  • Browser redirections to predetermined pages
  • Occasional system misbehavior

In order to avoid further problems associated with clicking any of the ads brought by MusixLib, the user is advised to proceed towards its removal.
