According to our research, this adware is very similar to NewsCert and Moneyzila, both of which are classified as potentially unwanted programs. We classify MusicMain as adware rather than a PUP because it does not operate as a regular program, and its main function is to show ads and redirect you to pages showing ads. If you have installed this unreliable program onto your operating system, you must have noticed that it does not actually stream music or show cheaper tickets. Instead, it provides two links to sites that supposedly can offer you these services. The GUI of this adware is just a window that opens a web page,, that might automatically redirect you to a different page. Regardless of which page shows up, it is most likely that you will find shortcuts two different pages, the first one leading to and the second one to Although we do not claim that these websites are malicious, you should not trust access to them provided by some unreliable adware. We also recommend ignoring all offers shown via,,,, and similar websites.MusicMain Removal GuideMusicMain screenshot

The suspicious MusicMain could not redirect you to random pages and show ads if it did not have files. These files are located in a folder named after the program under C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86), depending on your Windows system. This adware is also operated using registry keys. These keys can be found under {HKCU/HKLM}\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\DOMStorage\ and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\. If you decide to delete this adware one element at a time, make sure you remove all files, registry keys, and shortcuts (Desktop and Start menu).
