Just like a big number of adware programs Adware.ArcadeCandy also arrives at your computer bundled with third party freeware. Although Adware.ArcadeCandy is not a particularly risky computer program, it can collect user-specific information such as your computer name, operating system configuration, your location and even web browsing information without your consent. Later on this information can be sent to a remote server behind your back, and that is main reason why it is highly recommended to remove Adware.ArcadeCandy from your computer.
Be careful when you install third party software on your computer, because you may install automatically without even realizing it. However, do take note of the fact, that users are often prompted about the oncoming installation, asking them whether they would like to install a recommended program. That program might as well be Adware.ArcadeCandy, so before you click Next take some time, and read what the installation wizard has to say. If the offer says "Powered by OpenCandy", then you can be sure that you will get Adware.ArcadeCandy installed on your PC. What is more, the adware may recommend you installing a number of browser plug-ins and add-ons that you perhaps do not even need.
Once you get this adware installed, a portion of your Internet traffic is redirected towards opencandy.com servers. Adware.ArcadeCandy transmits a code to its servers that allows the program to track a number of specific programs - when they get downloaded and installed. When Adware.ArcadeCandy collects such information, it can recommend you a program to install, based on the collected data. Needless to say, that the programs Adware.ArcadeCandy offers you to install are potentially unwanted software applications, and instead of installing whatever you are told to, you should remove Adware.ArcadeCandy from your computer immediately.
You should remove all the undesirable programs via Control Panel, but that does not guarantee that you will get rid of all the unwanted files. Therefore you should scan your PC with SpyHunter free scanner and then check which files need to be removed from your system. However, keep in mind that you should not proceed with manual removal unless you are an experienced computer user. Therefore, invest in a reliable antimalware program and allow it to remove Adware.ArcadeCandy for you automatically. It will also safeguard your PC against other possible threats.
