What is known about DynamiteArcade virus?

Today we are going to describe yet another ad-supported application – DynamiteArcade adware. This program has been assigned to “potentially unwanted programs” (PUP) category because its functionality is doubtfully reliable. This program serves various pop-up advertisements, which are typically marked as “ads by DynamiteArcade” or “DynamiteArcade ads.” While some of these ads include links leading to secure Internet sites, others can be related to malicious Internet pages, so by clicking on any of these ads, you risk visiting potentially harmful websites. As the developer of this applications says, it “provides links to the websites of many third parties,” and that they are not responsible for content published on these third-party sites. However, we would like to warn you about risks you might take by visiting and exploring these sites.

Questions about DynamiteArcade ads

Some of Dynamite Arcade ads can be related to fraudulent sites, which can offer you to install malware or potentially unwanted programs. You should take all necessary measures to protect your computer against such threats, since frauds who distribute malware manage to bundle critical programs with freeware, bogus software updates or just inject malicious codes behind the clickable content. We cannot claim that all DynamiteArcade ads come from insecure web sources, but a part of them can be untrustworthy, and it goes without saying that it is better to be safe than sorry. Therefore, we highly recommend you to ignore these ads meanwhile and get ready to remove DynamiteArcade from your PC. For that, we recommend you to read instructions provided below the article. If you do not feel confident enough to take matters into your own hands, you can always just command an automatic malware removal program to delete threats from your computer system. If you do not have such program, or if you believe that the one you have does not work properly, then we suggest installing ReimageIntego.

How does this program spread?

DynamiteArcade PUP is promoted on its official website, which offers to play various free online games. The site hides “Premium” games and says that the user has to install an ad-supported application in order to play these games. However, the user should not agree to obtain this program if he/she does not want to find out what advertising overload is. Nevertheless, this program can hijack your computer without your knowledge as well. If you didn’t know this yet, potentially unwanted programs like DynamiteArcade adware hijack computers if the users install a program that promotes them. We have noticed that PC users tend to choose Default/Standard installation settings, which are not trustworthy at all. They do not provide information about software that has been bundled with the main program, so naturally, if you want to see this info, you should switch installation settings to another option – either Advanced or Custom one. If your downloaded application happens to be a software package, then you will see a list of additional programs added to it. Just deselect each component individually and you will avoid installing them.

How can you remove DynamiteArcade?

DynamiteArcade virus can be removed rather easily. You do not necessarily have to use a malware removal tool because it is not very hard to eliminate this piece of software manually. The 2-spyware team has prepared manual DynamiteArcade removal instructions for you to teach you how to uninstall this program without using the malware removal program. These guidelines can help you to understand how to delete potentially unwanted programs. However, it is still important to have a computer security software on your PC to keep it protected from virus attacks, and if you do not have one, we strongly recommend you to install one without a delay.

After uninstalling this potentially unwanted program (PUP) and fixing each of your web browsers, we recommend you to scan your PC system with a reputable anti-spyware.

Choose a proper web browser and improve your safety with a VPN tool

Online spying has got momentum in recent years and people are getting more and more interested in how to protect their privacy online. One of the basic means to add a layer of security – choose the most private and secure web browser. Although web browsers can't grant full privacy protection and security, some of them are much better at sandboxing, HTTPS upgrading, active content blocking, tracking blocking, phishing protection, and similar privacy-oriented features. However, if you want true anonymity, we suggest you employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN – it can encrypt all the traffic that comes and goes out of your computer, preventing tracking completely.


Lost your files? Use data recovery software

While some files located on any computer are replaceable or useless, others can be extremely valuable. Family photos, work documents, school projects – these are types of files that we don't want to lose. Unfortunately, there are many ways how unexpected data loss can occur: power cuts, Blue Screen of Death errors, hardware failures, crypto-malware attack, or even accidental deletion.

To ensure that all the files remain intact, you should prepare regular data backups. You can choose cloud-based or physical copies you could restore from later in case of a disaster. If your backups were lost as well or you never bothered to prepare any, Data Recovery Pro can be your only hope to retrieve your invaluable files.
