Description of QuizGames

QuizGames is an annoying adware which is the culprit of disrupting your browsing experience. It should be held responsible for those inconveniences occurring when you are surfing the Internet. QuizGames is mainly spread by freeware and shareware. It is not recommended to keep it in your computer, because it has the ability to cause annoying ads (coupons, discounts, best sales and so on) on the computer no matter what you are doing. Although the headlines in those ad windows may seem to be attractive, you should avoid clicking on them.

Why are the ad windows from QuizGames dangerous? In fact, they themselves are not dangerous, but they have hyperlinks associated with suspicious third-party web sites, including unpopular shopping sites or certain special service sites. QuizGames may even trick you into accessing unsafe web sites with viruses or malware. In addition, this adware is able to track your surfing habits and preferences. Although it does not collect private information from you, your search history, web access logs, data entry and email address may be collected, analyzed and used for affiliate marketing. Therefore, do not hesitate to get rid of QuizGames adware immediately once you find it in your computer system.
