The problem with potentially unwanted programs and adware is that you sometimes install it on your PC willingly. The same can be applied to Arcadeweb as well. This detection is classified as adware, but if you search the name online you will be redirected to an arcade game website. The website itself is totally legal, and the only problem with this adware application occurs only when you install particular Arcadeweb plugins on your PC. Remove Arcadeweb from your computer and you should prevent the continuous onslaught of commercial advertisements.
Arcadeweb is compatible with all versions of Windows OS and all main browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer). So it does not matter what kind of operating system/browser combination you might have – if you install Arcadeweb on your PC, chances are that you are going to experience constant commercial pop-ups.
You cannot rule out the possibility of Arcadeweb arriving bundled with freeware applications as well. Do be careful about what you download online, and whether the sources are reliable. Arcadeweb is more annoying than dangerous, but there could be malicious threats hiding among free software programs as well.
Once Arcadeweb is installed on your computer, the program creates a number of registry entries in order for it to auto-start each time you turn on your computer. Then modifies your browser settings by installing particular components that searches for keywords on web pages and then converts them into links. That is why, with Arcadeweb on your PC, you will see underlined links in a number of websites that you visit, offering you to click on them and find out more about various commercial offers. In order to check the offer, you merely need to hover your mouse above the underlined keyword. Here’s an example of one of the advertisements:
Needless to say, that Arcadeweb is not responsible for the third party links, embedded in these advertisements. Users click them at their own risk, and in the long run it is possible to click on a link that leads to a corrupted website that hosts malware. Everyone wants to avoid malicious infections, so it important that you remove Arcadeweb from your PC by uninstalling the program.
