    Hi,

    I believe there's a confusion here. The GamesBar is not an Adaware.

    The GamesBar is a legit toolbar distributed by top providers such as MSN, Pogo and AT&T.

    • victim of capitalist terroism

      then why did it install when I unchecked the box that asked me if I wanted it installed, no means no & games bar installed without my permission so yes it is invasive intrusive violating male/spy/adware that has raped my innocence.

  • debbie

    gamesbar is a distructive bar that causes many issues. it has crashed my pages all the time since it downloaded, which i want even aware i was doing .. it refuses to delete and has changed all my settings. discusting people can get away with forceful sownloads of these bars !!

    gamesbar is junk spam it installed it self with out my permission. i installed a vob player and it had it to where you can untick it as to not install it and it installed it anyways. I stop when i saw it ask about the bar and crashed the program yet it had already installed it. I checked where you said to find the uninstall and guess what no gamesbar>uninstall get rid of this trash as fast as you can as a legit company wouldnt need to sneak in like trash.

    What I have learned from downloading programs:
    1. Most companies are opportunistic, and will allow unscrupulous spammers and “junk dealers” to attach their code (who in turn allow other spammers and junk dealers to attach their code to them) to their product for a fee. This results in problems such as “gamesbar” infecting and interfering with our computers.
    2. Dont download anything from a third party site even if it is approved by Microsoft or Apple.
    3. Trust your Anti-virus alerts: if they say “This is a malicious site” or “we have detected malicious software” or if they give any such warnings, dont go to the page.
    4. If there is something you really want to do (such as downloading an obscure foreign film, or a now defunct game) be careful of which companies say they have it and can make it available. Often they will have you download their product and then, after you download, you will find that they do not have what you want – because they used “key words” in their search description, and they only used the keywords so that you would find their product, not because they have what you searched for.
    5. The internet, and all the products and services offered, is about making money through attaching 3rd party advertisements, 3rd party products, and 3rd party services; companies will accept money and fees from anyone – they do not care about their ethics or if they are honest.

    Thats what I have learned.

    Yeah that happened to me too! When I say I dont want it installed, I mean I DON”T WANT IT INSTALLED!

    Somebody should start putting bullets in the heads of the people responsible for these types of invasions !

    Unfortunately blowing their brains out is illegal. Well have to settle for harrassing their asses with violation complaints to the government, and enforcement bodies (though I dont hold much hope for that).
