Can I install APlusGamer Toolbar on my computer?
From the first glimpse, APlusGamer Toolbar may look like an ordinary toolbar, but, please, do not fall into installing it blindly. Otherwise, it may trick you into downloading related software, changing your start page or the default search engine and allowing other changes on your computer. It is compatible with Internet Explorer, but you may find related components from its developer on each of your web browsers. Officially, APlusGamer is presented as a useful tool that can be used for learning. However, after downloading this app to your computer, you may notice that it works without a break and causes commercial ads during your browsing. Its ability to start its work with every system’s reboot is related to a startup registration point, Windows Service and a background controller service that are created as soon as this program enters the system.
During the installation of APlusGamer Toolbar, you may be offered to change the start page and the default search engine to search.tb.ask.com or other search engine. To avoid that, you need to be very careful during the installation of this program. Make sure that you uncheck all pre-checked check marks that may be offered to you during this process. In addition to APlusGamer Toolbar redirects to unwanted search sites, people may be chased by various pop-up notifications that may offer software updates or using special discounts to purchase products. However, that’s how the money is collected. That’s why you should think twice before downloading this toolbar to your computer.
How can APlusGamer Toolbar appear on my computer?
Just like any other potentially unwanted program, APlusGamer Toolbar is distributed via its official website. However, you have to realize that installing it on your computer may lead you to the appearance of additional software. This can be proved with the help of this quotation from the EULA of this program:
“The MS Products may integrate, be integrated into, bundled, or be provided in connection with third-party services, feeds, and/or content. If you are installing an MS Product that includes third party services and third party content, such services and content are subject to such third party’s terms of services and privacy policies, which may be found on the relevant Third Party Partner’s website.”
To prevent this, you should stay away from this toolbar or try to pay an appropriate amount of your attention to its installation process. For that, make sure you select Custom or Advanced installation method and opt out of every check box that notifies about plug-ins, add-ons, extensions or toolbars. If you have already found APlusGamer Toolbar on your computer, and you know that you don’t want to keep it on the system, you should follow a removal guide given in the next page.
Recently, the developer of this program contacted us asking us to remove this post from 2-spyware.com website. We believe that we shouldn’t do that as long as programs that we offer for the removal of APlusGamer toolbar can detect it and help users to remove it from the system. As it is mentioned under each of download buttons, we ARE affiliated with these anti-malware programs, and while some of them are free, others can remove a virus only after purchasing them. These mentions fully fulfill each of the requirements of FTC.
Nevertheless, we have recently decided to make a revision of this and other posts that are related to this developer. We claim that all of them are described properly.
