    "Hi-Jack Ware . . . . Grabs your computer"

    August 23, 2013   |   By Rick_-_Z

    Version: TopArcadeHits 1.0

    Pros

    Absolutely NONE

    Cons

    Very, Very difficult to remove from Firefox.

    Grabs your browser and redirects to its spamware sites

    Generates LOTS of Popups.

    Designed to be extremely hard to get out of your computer.

    Summary

    Evil software. Who knows what future versions (it autoupdates) will add onto your computer. Grab your credit card info ?

    Avoid at all costs

    "I don't know how this got loaded on my computer"

    August 17, 2013   |   By mmm2006

    Version: TopArcadeHits 1.0

    Pros

    None. I don't play games on my computer, so I have no reason to use this.

    Cons

    Browser instability
    No use for it (I don't play games on my computer)

    Summary

    I don't know how this got loaded on my machine. I realized it was here when I kept seeing it listed with NoScript. When I started having browser stability problems in both Firefox and Internet Explorer, I decided to find out what it was.

    I don't play games on my computer and I don't share my computer, so no one else would have loaded this.

    Updated on Aug 17, 2013

    I just discovered that this was downloaded when I used the CNet downloader to install other software. It's the last page of the installer and you have to select Decline. Apparently I wasn't paying attention. My apologies, TopArcadeHits. It's not your fault. (I still don't have a use for your software, though.)

    "Why's it legal to mess with our property,our computers?"

    July 11, 2013   |   By deanerwho

    Version: TopArcadeHits 1.0

    Pros

    Zero pros, has slowed down my computer to a crawl.

    Cons

    I tried to write CNET but as is typical with these ***ish-owned companies, they don't want to hire a lot of employees so there is no way to fax or email them.

    Summary

    Once again, why is this legal? Why is it not being prosecuted? If somebody put sugar in my gas tank, would they not be prosecuted?

    Updated on Jul 11, 2013

    The most insidious thing this virus has done is prevent my Spybot from updating. I'm also having a problem with Avast updates. Is this because toparcadehits will be included in the latest update?

    "backdoor extension install"

    July 08, 2013   |   By Triga_3

    Version: TopArcadeHits 1.0

    Pros

    absolutely none... unless you like being hijacked!

    Cons

    Not any real cons, just rather annoying... Removal is fairly easy, just go to extension manager in FF or running services via the chrome task manager. Very sly...

    Summary

    PURE SPYWARE, PURE AS-SHOLISH!

    "Hijacker, forcibly installed with my cnet downloads"

    June 26, 2013   |   By lanlet

    Version: TopArcadeHits 1.0

    Pros

    - none, other than perhaps training the user's patience and virus removal skills

    Cons

    - creates popup surveys when the user is surfing. Example text: You've been selected to take part in this anonymous survey. Tell us what you think of "website" in this 30 seconds questionnaire, and to say "thank you", we'll offer you an exclusive free gift worth over $50...
    - removal from uninstall programs unsuccessful, had to use malwarebytes

    Summary

    After I downloaded a file extension changer from cnet, this software was forcibly installed onto my computer. I had specifically chosen custom install and un-ticked any boxes allowing the installation of third-party software. This software acts like a virus, toggling random popups when the user is browsing sites, and opens up random surveys.

    "Do Not Trust CNET To Screen Software Their Website!"

    June 19, 2013   |   By aslay33

    Version: TopArcadeHits 1.0

    Pros

    None. It's a lure to advertise clients. What's downloaded, it is almost impossible to remove.

    Cons

    For the first time, I caught malware using something I downloaded from CNET.com. Be where because it is possible. If you don't believe me, just read the other reviews.

    So far, to remove it I tried Malwarebytes and McAfee, but to no avail.

    Summary

    If you can't trust CNET.com, who can you trust? Beware downloading free software from anywhere. CNET does not screen software.

    "a sneaky backdoor install"

    June 11, 2013   |   By MacUpNorth

    Version: TopArcadeHits 1.0

    Pros

    Did a search and found nothing redeeming about this software in concept or usefulness

    Cons

    This came with an update that I trusted and I did not read the small-print so this was an accidental download which according to my search is the way most people accidentally got this program

    Summary

    With all the problems many people have reported trying to remove this software ...I am surprised that c|net does not give a warning that you should buy and install the Revo Un-installer program. It has saved me hours of pain and frustration getting rid of 'software mistakes.'

    "I never even wanted this..can't uninstall"

    May 20, 2013   |   By 1cleverchef

    Version: TopArcadeHits 1.0

    Pros

    None-this must have been attached to cnet download I did not uncheck. Similar to what happened to Dramoth.

    Cons

    I deleted the program from add/remove, yet I'm still getting the ads, opening in another window. Their must be a section of the file I cant find still on my hard drive. I can't stop the new window pop ups. I have a small SSD 64 gb, with few restore points. The back up from an external WD HD in March is not working properly, I just found out.

    Summary

    The whole thing really stinks, I did send T.A.H's an email about this. I don't see the program on my hard drive yet the pop ups/windows continue..I may have to re install Win 7 pro, if worse comes to worse.
    Unbelievable-Stay away
