not dangerous just a pain to uninstall, I would consider annoyware
Very annoying to remove, not really useful (better programs are easy to find (such as NCH programs, or Audacity)), and comes with free malware. Tunebite also breaks Realtek HD audio drivers upon install.
Tunebite.exe is a program from 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

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with tunebite.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem.
