Toparcade Hits

When you subscribe to various services online be sure that these are the services you really want or need. For example, Toparcade Hits is an application that informs you about flash games and frequently redirects you to toparcadehits.com website that contains over 3000 flash games. Therefore, if you haven’t subscribed or downloaded the application yourself, chances are that Toparcade Hits will not appear on your PC unless you allow it to enter your system. However, security experts recommend removing Toparcade Hits from your computer even if you installed this application willingly, because it is a potentially unwanted program that may cause a number security issues.

Truth to be told, toparcadehits.com is not the only website that is part of the application’s distribution network. It is also possible to download freeware applications that are bundled with this potentially unwanted from a number of third party websites including download.com and cnet.com. That is not to say Toparcade Hits enters your system surreptitiously. Usually such applications prompt users about the oncoming installations, but the problem is that users often ignore these prompts or simply go with the installation process automatically, eventually ending up with such things as Toparcade Hits installed on their PCs.

If you do not like the service, Toparcade Hits offers a way to deactivate it. It certainly raises a question whether we can consider this application to be malicious. Nevertheless, potential security threats caused by this program are obvious. Especially if you keep in mind the fact that Toparcade Hits is vulnerable to exploitation by malicious third parties. It means that it may display links to corrupted websites as well. It is not Toparcade Hits fault, but it cannot be responsible for a third party that makes use of the application to distribute their malicious programs.
