Game Wham

Game Wham promises entertaining content for its users, but it neither allows you to play games online nor does it provide downloadable games. If you expected a different application, we would advise you to remove it from your computer because the program is yet another adware infection that pretends to be a useful tool. The truth is that the application will only show you pop-ups with advertising. What you should really be aware of is the fact that these pop-ups might redirect you to suspicious websites, and they might be harmful to your computer. We believe that the application is not worthy to be kept installed, but if you cannot decide what to do with it yet, you should continue reading and learn more about it.

Firstly, it is important to know that the application’s installer from gamewham.com is bundled with browser hijackers, potentially unwanted programs, and other adware. In other words, there is a chance that you may have allowed other potentially harmful programs to be installed. Although we cannot tell you the exact titles, we can advise you to look for unfamiliar programs in Control Panel or suspicious extensions on your default browser’s settings. They should have appeared in your system right after Game Wham was installed. Secondly, it may be possible that you downloaded the adware unknowingly. Such software is often bundled with freeware on unreliable file-sharing sites. When the freeware is downloaded, some users do not notice that other software is being suggested in the installation wizard. If you click "accept" or similar buttons without reading the terms, you may install various programs, such as Game Wham without realizing it.

The adware loads many different sites in its window and on your default browser. Moreover, it could display pop-ups with ads that might get you redirected to unfamiliar web pages, too. Sadly, the sites, such as vdozz.exclusiverewards.oast.info, do not look reliable and they might be different for each user as they are region-specific. From the software’s Privacy Policy statements, it is clear that the sites belong to a third party. As we mentioned earlier, some of the web pages could be dangerous to your computer, especially if they display malicious content. The adware has a lot of third-party partners, and it does not review the content that is promoted on these websites. Naturally, they refuse to take any responsibility for the harm that users could receive while interacting with third-party content. Besides catching malware, you could also reveal your private information, such as email address, telephone number, etc. For example, the site could offer you to register and it might require submitting your personal data.

Furthermore, the adware’s Privacy Policy states that “By signing up for our Program you expressly opt in to receive future information about products and services from us and from a variety of advertisers to whom we may provide your Information.” It means that once you install the application, it could gather information about you and share it with a third party. Also, it says that you agree to receive even more ads from the software’s partners. In this case, it is very important to be careful with your private or sensitive information, especially on suspicious websites. The best solution would be to delete the adware from your computer as it is the only way to get rid of the ads or stop the redirection.

The application has no useful features to offer, and it might redirect you to potentially harmful sites. Therefore, it would be smarter to remove the adware, before anything bad happens. Our researchers have found out that it can be deleted from Control Panel, although it leaves a couple of folders that have to be removed manually. You should check the instructions below the article if you want to know the exact leftover locations. We should remind you that if there is any other suspicious software on your computer, you will have to delete it manually, too. On the other hand, if you ever thought about installing an antimalware tool, this might be the moment. A legitimate security tool would locate Game Wham or any other threat and erase all of its files. If you keep the tool updated, it will continue protecting your computer from malware too.
