I wrote this article to help you remove Appdarkgame Virus. This Appdarkgame Virus removal guide works for all Windows versions.

We hate to be bringer of bad news, but if you notice the existence of the Appdarkgame app, it would mean that your computer has been infiltrated by a browser hijacker. This PUP (Potentially Unwanted Software) has the ability to modify your browser settings, in order to make sure it can generate a solid ad content without interruption.

The aim of the action is to create income with each click on them that the user makes. This would prove to be an easy task because browser hijackers can obtain user’s browsing history and habits, in order to provide targeted advertisement content that the victim is most likely to click on. Other symptoms may also be but not limited to unauthorized toolbar and extension installation.

Often users fall victims to malware by opening spam emails and attachments. If you receive letters from unknown senders, we recommend not clicking on it because it can contain some sort of malicious software that may harm your computer. Other means of hijacker distribution are fake updates, free software bundles, infected links, suspicious pop-ups and ads, etc.

Some of the things you can do in order to avoid a potential hijacker infection is to download software only from licensed sources, as well as follow through a Custom or Advanced type installation, so you can easily deselect any unwanted software that may seem suspicious or never intended to download in the first place.

While the Appdarkgame is not a virus itself, it is still a tool in the hands of hackers that seek to find a way to profit by generating alluring ads. What users should also be aware of, is that there is another potential danger that hides behind the already mentioned advertisement content. The truth is, there is no way of knowing where such redirects can lead you to. By clicking on a suspicious pop-up that has been generated by the browser hijacker, you may grant other viruses access to your computer system.

It is possible for such viruses to be in the rank of Trojan Horses, or even ransomware! Only they are a lot more dangerous than a hijacker. If you don’t want to get your personal information compromised, you should proceed with the removal of this malicious software as soon as you notice its presence. Follow our instructions below to successfully complete this task.
