How to remove (uninstall) Arcade Lift

This guide is devoted to an undesired software called Arcade Lift and methods to uninstall it. If you suffer from constant pop-ups on the Internet, and the productivity of your laptop has suddenly decreased - this guide will explain you what advertising programs are, understand the primary issue and sweep the laptop of strange software.

Arcade Lift

There are three basic forms of advertising tools which spread through the Internet these days: browser hijackers, adware and browser toolbars. These programs were originally developed not to benefit users, and their functions are aimed only at getting money from advertising fraud. Fraudsters try very hard to persuade customers that suchlike tools are good: they describe them very well and promise incredible efficiency and advantage. To make it easier for you, we will describe the basic features of each type of advertising programs.

  • Browser hijackers invite another sort of trouble. Instead of banners they make the users to visit the fraud web-pages. These utilities help the foul website owners to create traffic and decrease the protection level of user's machine.
  • Browser toolbars show ads too, but less actively than the previous two kinds of advertising tools. Their main function is to collect information about victim's search queries and viewed pages that are then transmitted on to fraudsters for further usage. Suchlike data is of considerable value for each advertising organization.
  • Adware differs in that it places ad units on all sites that the victim visits and in some cases, on the desktop. Fraudsters try to make adware look profitable, so it can be masked as one of many free tools for web-browsing, text redacting, data archiving, etc. Advertising pops up as links, pop-ups or distinct units in search results.

Every of mentioned kinds of adware uses separate techniques to infect the computer and to work in it. In spite of the difference in methods, they are all similar by the thing that they were originally created for deception and scam. Except for apparent nuisance, such as abundance of banners and pop-ups, there is a hidden feature of Arcade Lift and it is the abnormal lowering of PC's protection.

 

Now, when we explained for what purpose was this "virus" designed, it's time to understand how to detect Arcade Lift and remove it. The biggest and the most perilous symptom of infection is the advertising overflow. Attribute #2 is the emergence of strange software on your computer that you don't remember downloading. Such thing can appear when customer clicks on all links that adware shows, viewing the suspicious pages and downloading viruses from there. If such thing happens, you might not even notice how malicious program penetrates the system.

The third attribute is a heavy slowdown of the PC, and an growth in its boot time. Deceleration of PC performance is not exclusively the result of virus, but this appears very frequently. PC retards because any advertising program is running endlessly and never turns off. It means that adware is starting at computer's startup and shutting down only with the whole machine. When the quantity of viruses gets to the edge, their simultaneous functioning begins to overburden the system, and demands so much resources that useful software simply can't work. When the OS is in this condition, it begins to suffer from fatal errors of various services, lags and emergency turn-offs. If you notice any of these symptoms - you should scan the PC via good antivirus or remove all viruses in manual manner.
