Today and tonight I have just cleaned 2 computers of all the junk that accumulates over the course of time.Useing an arsenal of freeware from FreewareBB,,I've cleaned ,reset and tweaked life back into these macines. Both computers are from people involved with church choirs. While running a scan with Avast Free on one and MSE on the other ,,they both came up with the same threats. Going to the threat location, I discovered "both" treats were "OPENCANDY". After removing and cleaning away the "infections",,I proceeded to look up the source of the problems. A software from and called" Musicnotes" . Checking further I found that you can download Musicnotes Player Free,,only,,it only plays songs downloaded from Musicnotes. The way Musicnotes works is,,You get a one time"FREE DOWNLOAD" of Musicnotes. Then you get to download all sheet music anytime ,,anywhere "FREE",,,,,,,,,,after you set up an account an pay a fee to download "FREE" !!!! When I first looked it up ,the first thing I saw was Musicnotes (FREE).
Nothing is free but the Player which isn't any good without a Musicnote subscription !!!!
FREE,,,FREE DOWNLOAD,,,FREE SHEET MUSIC,all this is used to con you into a paid subscription and registation.The only thing that was "FREE" was the "Original Threat",,,,,,OpenCandy.
