ActionClassicGames Toolbar

We often get complaints about ActionClassicGames Toolbar because users do not really understand how this browser extension gets into their computers. It is important to note that ActionClassicGames Toolbar is not a malicious computer infection because it does not slither into your system surreptitiously. You may not be aware of that, but you install this toolbar on your PC willingly. This happens when you download freeware apps in a bundle from a third-party file-sharing website.

Since ActionClassicGames Toolbar is not a malicious infection, you can remove it from your system via Control Panel. However, we would like to discuss some of the toolbar’s features because they are often considered to be troublesome by computer security experts.

ActionClassicGames Toolbar belongs to the MindSpark family of browser extensions. All programs from this group maintain that they have been built for one particular purpose, and that they can improve one specific aspect of your web browsing experience. From that aspect, ActionClassicGames Toolbar does not differ from Video Scavenger Toolbar, Citysearch Toolbar, Zwinky Toolbar, and so on. We are not trying to say that ActionClassicGames Toolbar does not live up to its promises. In this case, the toolbar provides you instant access to online gaming websites.

However, we have to take into consideration the fact that ActionClassicGames Toolbar comes with additional functions and features that might prove to be detrimental to your system’s security. For example, if you install the full version of this toolbar, your default search engine and homepage will be changed to That is why some users think that ActionClassicGames Toolbar is a browser hijacker, but that is not true. Browser hijackers do not even bother informing you that they are about to be installed on your system.

ActionClassicGames Toolbar, on the other, does notify you that your default browser settings will be affected if you install the “recommended” setup. If you go through the installation process automatically, without checking any of the steps, it is only natural that you experience the browser settings modification as well. Nevertheless, there is no need to panic about it because your settings can be restored without any difficulties. All you have to do is follow the instructions below this description.

Now, as far as ActionClassicGames Toolbar itself is concerned, computer security experts say that it is not a good idea to keep this extension on your computer either. The problem is that the Mindspark toolbars might be promoting third-party content that is very far from being reliable. It is not that ActionClassicGames Toolbar intends to infect you with malware or rob you off, but this toolbar is too vulnerable to third-party exploitation, so you cannot take that risk.

Open your Control Panel and delete ActionClassicGames Toolbar immediately. When you are done, restore your browser settings and then invest in a licensed antispyware tool to protect your PC from similar intruders.

Please keep in mind that most of the time ActionClassicGames Toolbar enters computers in software bundles, so there is a good chance that a number of unwanted applications were installed on your PC along with this extension. Once again, the best way to find out whether you have severe threats on-board is to scan the system with a computer security tool of your choice.
