MartianArcade is a useless program that can annoy you with third-party advertisements, but what is worse, it can also put your virtual security at risk. If you have this adware on board, there is a chance that you will click on corrupt content, such as unreliable third-party ads (banners, pop-ups, and other types), which can result in more infections on your system or worse. This application may also come along with other malware threats, which can further endanger your system security. Therefore, if you find this ad-supported program on your system, you should expect multiple threats indeed. This means that even if you remove MartianArcade as soon as possible, there may be other infections making your computer vulnerable. If you want to protect your system efficiently against this application and other threats, please continue reading to find out more.

This application offers free online games if you install this software and allow third-party advertising. This infection promotes games you can find on its official site, martianarcade.com. Interestingly enough, this program is not available for download there. But you can find an installer at mirror.astrointercom.info. However, if your computer is protected by up-to-date anti-malware software, you cannot even access this site as it is detected and blocked as a page with malicious content. Our research indicates that the most likely way for this adware to show up on your computer is via freeware bundles. This means that this threat can travel the web together with other malware infections, such as browser hijackers, Trojans, fake alerts, adware programs, and potentially unwanted programs as well.

You can easily download such a malicious package if you click on corrupt links or third-party ads. These can be presented to you if your computer is infected with malware, including adware apps and browser hijackers. But you can also find such content if you end up on suspicious file-sharing or gaming websites. This is why you need to be so careful about your clicks whenever you are online and browsing the web. It is possible to land on malicious sites even if you simply run a web search on free programs to download. All the reputable search engines (Google, Bing, and Yahoo) may display results that lead to questionable websites with potentially harmful content. If you click on any third-party ad or suspicious content on such pages, you may drop a malicious bundle onto your system. You also need to be very cautious when you install such a package because you may be introduced to the full content before you let the whole bundle to enter your system. If you miss this step in the installation wizard, you may infect your computer with a bunch of “nasties.” It is advisable to run a full-system malware scan after you delete MartianArcade from your computer to make sure that you are aware of the malware situation on board.

Once you install this ad-supported program, you can be sure that you will be introduced to some potentially unreliable third-party ads. You need to know that these third-parties are usually not reviewed or controlled; therefore, even cyber criminals can be among them. Such crooks have their ways to exploit programs like MartianArcade and to promote their malicious websites through fake advertisements. This gets worse because this adware may also be able to collect information about your browsing activities, which can help criminals to target you with customized and relevant-looking advertisements. However, if you click on such ads, instead of buying a long wanted product for a very cheap price you may end up on a fake site stealing your banking and personal details. This could mean losing money from your account and your personal details used in other online crimes. We do not think that this is what you want to experience at all. That is why we suggest that you remove MartianArcade as soon as you can say “malware threat.”

Unfortunately, our research and tests showed that you cannot delete MartianArcade fully by using its uninstaller via Control Panel. This uninstaller only seems to take care of Internet Explorer. Therefore, you should manually remove the extensions from Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. If you are not familiar with these processes, please follow our instructions below. It is essential that you clean all the potential threats from your system without hesitating too much. If you do not want to tackle all your virtual security issues manually and one by one, we suggest that you download and install a trustworthy malware removal application, such as SpyHunter. But even if you protect your computer this way, you should not forget about updating all your programs and drivers to make it more difficult for crooks to harm your precious files and stored information.
