What is Gaming New Tab?
Gaming New Tab is yet another themed web browser’s extension that has rooted from the same family as RecipeSearch toolbar, TransitSimplified toolbar, WebmailWorld toolbar and many others. You can download it from the official websites; however, it is highly recommended to avoid doing that, because you probably won‘t be satisfied with the result. Unfortunately, but this application and the majority of its clones are typically spread bundled with freewares, which is why they may infiltrate computers without being noticed.
Once Gaming New Tab slithers into your system, it installs a browser extension that changes web browser’s homepage, search engine, and a new tab window to search.ask.com. After that, it gets the ability not only to deliver sponsored search results but also to track user’s web browsing activities using cookies.
If earlier this toolbar was compatible with Google Chrome only, it seems that it has been upgraded and now can attach itself to IE, Firefox, Safari, and other popular web browsers. Be aware that this application is designed to collect information about websites that you visited, search terms you entered, bookmarks you saved, items you downloaded and so on. Such information is crucial for affiliate marketing because Gaming New Tab is going to show you attractive advertisements based on your online preferences. Ads by Gaming New Tab promote affiliate web pages, which is why they may be filled with hyperlinks to the pages that you are not familiar with. The advertisements this tool may display usually show up in forms like banners, pop-ups, in-text links, and other annoying forms. However, the problem is not the annoyance, but rather the reliability of the pages those ads are set to promote. Keep in mind that some of the ads may feature links to doubtful pages, which is why you should better not trust any of them. If you quite like Gaming New Tab, you can use it as long as you want. However, if after clicking on any of its links/ads, you have even the smallest hesitation that this website may be unreliable, do not download anything from it. Sometimes one click is enough to execute an unwanted/unsafe program. In case you are already determined to remove Gaming New Tab, you can find the guide on the Page2 below.
How did Gaming New Tab enter my computer?
Gaming New Tab is a potentially unwanted program. Such programs are frequently spread via bundling, what allows them to infiltrate computers without being noticed. Because of the fact that the majority of computer users tend to rush through the installations process, bundling is an excellent way for PUP developers to market them. Are you interested how bundling works? Well, the developers of PUP take one harmless and legitimate application and attach several additional apps, like adware, browser extensions, plug-ins, and add-ons. When you go through the installation process, most likely you are not going to notice where the agreements to install additional content are hidden. We inform you – they are concealed under the ‘‘standard‘‘ and ‘‘default‘‘ install settings. If you wish to avoid extra programs, opt for ‘‘advanced‘‘ or ‘‘custom‘‘ mode. In the expanded window of settings, untick all the boxes with unfamiliar statements. This way you will install only the preferred program.
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 Gaming New Tab 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.
