What do other computer users say about tunebite?
|not dangerous just a pain to uninstall, I would consider annoyware |

|Tunebite.exe is a program from Tunebite.com that supposedly allows you to rip protected audio/video "legally". It is very hard to uninstall and it also installs a few other programs and devices to your computer that are just as hard to uninstall. I do not know how dangerous it is yet. None of the programs will allow you to uninstall them without your approval to let unknown programs access your computer. Also if you check your audio devices, you will see that 30 new audio devices have been installed to your computer. I did not allow the prgram to finish installing so I dont know what else is |
