What is Media View?

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Media View is a browser hijacker. These so-called "hijackers" manipulate your browser(s), for example to change your startpage or searchscopes, so that the affected browser visits their site or one of their choice. This one also displays advertisements.

How do I know if my computer is affected by Media View?

You may see this entry in your list of installed software:

And these browser extensio0ns/add-ons:

How did Media View get on my computer?

Browser hijackers use different methods for distributing themselves. This particular one was bundled with other software.

How do I remove Media View?

Our program Malwarebytes Anti-Malware can detect and remove this potentially unwanted program.
Please use their own uninstaller first, but I would advise to follow the steps below anyway.
  • Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to your desktop.
  • Double-click mbam-setup-version.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • At the end, be sure a check-mark is placed next to the following:
    • Enable free trial of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium
    • Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, you will be prompted to download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select Scan Now. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu.
  • When the scan is complete, make sure that all Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected.
  • Restart your computer when prompted to do so.
Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of Media View?
  • No, together with the uninstaller, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware removes Media View completely.
How would the full version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware help protect me?

We hope our application and this guide have helped you eradicate this hijacker.

As you can see below the full version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware would have protected you against the Media View hijacker. It would have warned you before the rogue could install itself, giving you a chance to stop it before it became too late.
