How to remove ArcadeGoNetwork (Virus Removal Guide)

What is ArcadeGoNetwork?

ArcadeGoNetwork is an advertisement-supported browser extension compatible with the Google Chrome Internet Browser. The ArcadeGoNetwork extension is used to promote the arcadegonetwork.com website. Additionally, the ArcadeGoNetwork extension will display advertisements while you browse the web.

The ArcadeGoNetwork extension for Google Chrome has permission to read and change all your data on the websites you visit. This allows the extension to track your online activity and browsing habits.

An additional concern with the extension is that it is typically advertised on websites that display malicious advertisements and host malware. If you found the ArcadeGoNetwork extension attached to your browser or have visited a website that advertises the ArcadeGoNetwork extension, it is likely that your computer was introduced to other threats such as Movie Hunt that should be eradicated before they cause other complications.
