Hi guys. I noticed in my windows firewall that there was an exeption called MUZ AOD APP. Does anyone know what this is? Is it a serious virus?

Looks like it's just some off the wall player that showed up last may, most people must have uninstalled it

I never delete anything manually in the system32 folder, they are registered files

You can stop it from loading and running in the background with msconfig or

better yet something like

and you should be able to deny the exception with your firewall
