What is MusicOptimizerLab?
We want to raise awareness about a new malicious application called MusicOptimizerLab that is set to display annoying pop-up advertisements. Thus, we recommend that you remove this program because it is next to useless. However, it is promoted as if offers something unique that is an outright lie. Apart from showing annoying ads, it will also collect information about you and use it for commercial purposes. If you are unfortunate enough to have this program, then you might want to read this whole article as it contains insightful information collected by our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com.
Where does MusicOptimizerLab come from?
This program was developed by a software company called Tuto4Pc. This infamous company is well known for its malicious ad-supported software that is often used to promote questionable content. Desktop-play is a textbook example of an ad-supported program that was released before MusicOptimizerLab. So we recommend that you read our article about that program to get an even better understanding of what this company is all about. However, in short, this developer is focused on web monetization above all else. So this implies that its developers sacrifice functionality for profitability as observed in how this new program is distributed.
Our researchers have found that MusicOptimizerLab is currently being distributed on its dedicated website at Musicoptimizerlab.com. However, there is a slight problem — this program’s installer download does not initiate, so its developer may be experiencing some technical issues. However, this does not mean that it seized infecting computers. No, we have received unconfirmed information that this ad-supported program is being bundled with various potentially unwanted programs and distributed on some freeware websites. Again, we are not entirely sure about this, but it is plausible nonetheless.
How does MusicOptimizerLab work?
Allegedly, this program will magically turn your computer into a professional audio studio as it will provide you with the necessary tools to make music sound better than ever. On top of that, all of this incredible functionality is free of charge. However, the reality is very different as our researchers have learned that the only thing it will supply you with is commercial ads. Its ads are related to music software and music in general, but it does not download anything, and it does not turn your computer into a professional audio studio. Here is what it actually does.
Once this application is installed, it will start to automatically open browser windows even though the browser is closed and display its promoted links. Furthermore, it will inject coupons into other websites that you surf on, but this depends on the region you are in. Again, we want to stress that these ads will become increasingly intrusive and probably more common further down the line. One last thing before we move to the removal section. MusicOptimizerLab is installed as a service — not as a browser extension.
How do I remove MusicOptimizerLab?
Since this program functions as a background process and does not have a browser add-on, our researchers say that uninstalling it via Control Panel is sufficient to relieve your computer of it for good. However, it may leave junk files that may still connect to a server to display ads, so if that is the case, then you should scan your PC with a malware detection program.
