What is mp3juices[.]cc?
mp3juices[.]cc offers download of audio files in the .mp3 format from a chosen source (website). Note that mp3juices[.]cc should not be trusted or used, since it employs rogue advertising networks. In summary, people who use this website are redirected to various other untrusted sites.
One of the websites opened through mp3juices[.]cc is notification-list[.]com. Once visited, this site loads unwanted content or opens two or three other dubious web pages. It is very likely that mp3juices[.]cc might redirect users to other pages that operate in a similar manner to notification-list[.]com.
It might also open pages that contain deceptive ads that, if clicked, open more untrusted sites or cause unwanted downloads and installations. Research shows that mp3juices[.]cc opens a web page that advertises a potentially unwanted application (PUA) called MacKeeper.
This app is distributed using deceptive methods (e.g., by including it into the download/installation set-ups of other software). Apps such as MacKeeper are classified as PUAs, since people often download and install them unintentionally.
Furthermore, sites such as mp3juices[.]cc open deceptive web pages that display fake notifications relating to detected viruses, errors, and so on. Typically, these web pages encourage visitors to remove the so-called detections with some dubious software, which can be dowloaded through them.
Pages such as mp3juices[.]cc often lead to sites that are used to promote other PUAs such as adware, browser hijackers, and so on. Note that mp3juices[.]cc asks permission to show notifications. If allowed, mp3juices[.]cc starts to display pop-up ads/notifications that promote various PUAs, contain links to dubious pages, and so on.
In summary, mp3juices[.]cc and websites opened through it can never be trusted. Therefore, it is not safe to use its audio downloading service under any circumstances.

Examples of other similar web pages are mpgun[.]com, convertisseur-youtube-mp3[.]net and notube[.]net. Most websites of this type contain deceptive ads or lead users to other untrusted sites. Many offer to download videos or converted audio from YouTube (this practice is illegal).
How did adware install on my computer?
People usually download and install PUAs by clicking deceptive advertisements, which execute certain scripts, or when developers distribute them using the "bundling" method. They use this method to trick people into downloading and installing PUAs through the set-ups of regular software.
I.e., they include PUAs as additional offers and hide related information in settings such as "Custom", "Advanced", etc. People often download and install their software without checking these setting - by leaving them unchanged, they allow PUAs to be downloaded and installed through the set-ups of their required software.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications
Do not use third party software downloaders, installers, torrents clients, eMule (and other Peer-to-Peer) networks, unofficial pages or other similar channels to download or install software. Use official websites and direct download links. Check the download and installation set-ups for "Custom", "Advanced", "Manual" and other similar settings.
Dismiss any offers to download or install additional, potentially unwanted software. Do not click intrusive ads, especially those on unofficial, dubious web pages. These ads often cause redirects to potentially malicious pages or they download/install unwanted apps.
Remove any unwanted, suspicious extensions, plug-ins and add-ons installed from the browser, and remove programs of this kind from the operating system. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
