Brief Introduction of Arcade Twist Virus

Arcade Twist is defined as a nasty adware virus that has the ability to compromise various web browsers. Generally speaking, Arcade Twist is spread through spam e-mails. If you click the link accidentally, the adware will sneak into your PC so quickly that you have no ideas about when it comes inside. After installation, it will make a mess of your system.

First of all, Arcade Twist modifies system settings and adds its malicious codes to the registry. As a result, it can boot up together with your system. Secondly, Arcade Twist hijacks your web browser and displays pop-up advertisements on your screen, which not only affects the system operating speed, but also reduces browser performance. Moreover, Arcade Twist is likely to delete the original home page, so you probably lose your favorite homepage and cannot get it back.

What’s worse, Arcade Twist is able to create system vulnerabilities which may be taken advantage by various malware such as Gsave and LstDownload.net. By then, those malware can intrude into your system without any obstruction. Lastly, Arcade Twist records your browsing activities so as to provide other related ads for you. In a word, you must get rid of Arcade Twist from your PC immediately, before your computer crashes.
