What is MixiDJ?
Even though MixiDJ is a social player available from the official page mixi.dj, this name is usually mentioned when talking about the suspicious MixiDJ Community Toolbar or the mixidj.claro-search.com and mixidj.delta-search.com search engines. The authentic application is promoted as ‘The Best Social Player in the World’ which can help you create free music playlists and share them amongst your own friends. Once you install the application it automatically changes the home page of Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers to delta-search.com, widely known as Delta Search. This search engine is highly suspicious because it has been noticed to get installed alongside bundled downloads without the consent of the computer’s owner. So, how should you delete MixiDJ from your Windows system?
Why is MixiDJ dangerous?
Mixi.dj will disclose your Personal Information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary in order to: […] (d) provide you with certain services or products of Mixi.dj or any other third party, whether for commercial or other purposes.
Even though the intentions of the program may seem beneficial, you need to beware of the mentioned third party affiliates. If any of them were schemers in disguise, the private information collected by web cookies could be used to flood you with extremely misleading pop-ups ads. You should also be extremely careful with the home page of your browsers - delta-search.com. There is a possibility that this search engine could provide you with filtered search results and trick you into clicking on sponsored websites. Even though this trick could be used to generate profit based on the pay-per-click systems, it could also be employed to trick you into visiting sites which advertise fictitious software or even malware. Needless to say, MixiDJ removal is highly recommended.
