Whenever you play arcade games online, you have to be careful about downloading potentially unwanted programs on your computer. Online gaming sites often offer various download managers and other associated programs like TerasGames that should improve your online gaming experience. However, whenever we need to deal with the likes of TerasGames, we find that these programs function like adware, and they barely help you with game downloads and what not. In fact, we would strongly recommend that you remove this program from your system immediately, as there is no say what could happen if the application gets exploited by malevolent third parties.
Technically, TerasGames does not present us with anything unexpected because the application comes from the same group of game download managers as GamerHipp, TwistArcade, ArcadeHall, and so on. Thus, we know what to expect from this program. On top of that, we are almost sure you did not download the application from terasgames.com. This is the official website for the online games that are promoted by the program, but there is no direct download link that would be explicitly promoted on the site. Granted, it should be possible to download the application from the main homepage, but it is far more likely that users get this program in software packages.
If you tend to download freeware from third-party websites, it is very likely that the installers you download from file sharing pages carry more than just one application. In case you go through the installation process automatically, you probably miss all the information about additional programs and the chance to avoid installing them. As a result, the likes of TerasGames pop up on your screen the moment your system loads. After all, the application is programmed to start automatically whenever you turn on your computer.
We would not say anything about TerasGames if it were completely safe to have this program on-board. However, we are not too sure about this. A part from the programs EULA says that it could be used by third-party applications for advertising purposes. Consequently “these applications may provide their functionality and advertising by modifying your network traffic.” This proves that TerasGames could be intrusive and annoying. All programs that are part of advertising networks could inadvertently expose you to corrupted content, and then you might need to deal with serious computer security problems.
Before any of that happens, you should remove TerasGames via Control Panel. Luckily, it is not hard to terminate this type of program, but you should remember that manual removal may not be enough to get rid of all the potential threats. Not to mention that if this program came in a software package, the chances are you need to take care of an entire list of unwanted applications.
If you think that manual software removal is too much of a task for you, please acquire a powerful antispyware tool of your choice, and then terminate all the potential threats automatically. Investing in a computer security program will also help you ensure your system’s security in the future. Do not hesitate to take your computer’s safety into your own hands.
