Mixxen Removal Instructions
Mixxen is an adware developed by Surf Island Solutions which appears to be a new company founded to represent this product. It was created using the Injekt engine and seems to be identical to Mobios Radio which is another well known adware. The application offers a radio player that allows the user to access music streamed from the radios all over the world.
The user can also search for a specific music by genre, artist or song. This program seems very useful and it also works quite well. The problem that concerns our researchers is the additional features of this adware. Read the following article and find out why we advise to delete Mixxen.
What does Mixxen do?
You can download Mixxen from its official page mixxen.com, though most often it enters a new computer bundled with freeware from suspicious websites. To protect yourself from such surprises, you should consider using Advanced or Custom installation option when installing free of charge software. These options will allow you to control the process and to deny entrance to unwanted programs. If this adware has already entered your computer, we recommend to remove Mixxen.
The adware applications always display ads of the promoted websites, so do not be surprised when every new window you open will be filled with pop-up ads, banners, interstitial ads, in-text ads, and other kinds of advertisement in a matter of seconds. These ads will probably correspond really well with your recent search queries. That is because Mixxen tracks your browsing habits and records browsing history. Detailed knowledge of your page preferences, the time you spend in each page, and other similar information allows the program to display the advertisements that will most likely be interesting to you. The application generates revenue for every click on the promoted website. Never ending pop-ups will soon become very irritating and you will wish to get rid of Mixxen yourself.
However, the major problem is not the ads, but the third parties they represent. This advertising-supported program can expose the user to potentially malicious websites. If you enter the corrupted page, chances are that you will be infected with malware too. We urge you to be very careful and to avoid the provided links. Take your computer’s security seriously and eliminate Mixxen.
