What is Comet Arcade?
Comet Arcade is a program that is promoted at comet-arcade.com. It is described as an app that will allow you to play a game in which you can “destroy any website” you want. It is a simple online game similar to Websteroids, Blasteroids, etc.
Some users may find it interesting. On the official website of the program it is also stated that you can use Comet Arcade to destroy ads. What it does not say, however, is that the program will make sure there are plenty of adverts for you to “clear away”. Comet Arcade is classified as an ad-supported program for a good reason. It displays commercial third party content in your browsers that is not 100% safe. If you want to improve your cyber security, you should delete Comet Arcade.
How does Comet Arcade work?
Although Comet Arcade has an official website, it usually comes bundled with other freeware. You should keep in mind that free software often travels with additional applications. In order to avoid these apps you should always choose Advanced Installation and deselect all unwanted programs. Moreover, you should also avoid downloading software from unofficial and unreliable sources, especially pop-ups and other suspicious ads.
Regardless of whether you downloaded Comet Arcade yourself or it came bundled with other shareware, you should not keep it on your PC. The adware fills your browsers with various ads, pop-ups, banners and so on. You will not be able to use your browsers without these distractions. What is worse, however, the adverts you see are not endorsed by the application so you could easily be presented with false information. Do not click on any untrustworthy links or ads if you do not want to infect your computer system with malware. You should also be careful with our personal information. Do not fill out any suspicious surveys or lotteries as they may be used in order to gain your private data.
