How to Remove Arcade Parlor (Uninstall Guide)

Tell your friends:
Arcade Parlor is an adware program that displays pop-up ads that very often may have nothing to do with the web page content, quick-flash re-directs via commercial web pages and injects in-text ads when visiting certain sites such as,, etc. It may display in-text ads on other websites as well. This is the price you pay for supposedly free games you get when you agree to install this adware program on your computer. Of course, it's up to you to decide whether you want to keep it or not, but since it displays ads and collects information about your browsing habits I think you would be better off without it. Using this guide you will be able to easily remove all traces of the Arcade Parlor adware from your computer and browser.

Once installed, this adware will add browser add-ons to IE, Firefox and Chrome. These add-ons can access your data on all websites and access your tab browsing activity. Furthermore, the adware uses scheduled tasks run in the background to check for new updates. Scheduled tasks start every time that you start Windows and use system resources without your knowledge and permission. It may download and install additional adware on your computer.

It's very important that you pay attention to the license agreements and installation screens when installing anything; otherwise you can easily end up with Arcade Parlor and similar adware on your computer. If an installation screen offers you Custom or Advanced installation options, it is a good idea to select these as they will typically disclose what other 3rd party software will also be installed and allow you to opt out of them. If you can't seem to get rid of Arcade Parlor or you have additional questions, please leave a comment below. Good luck and be safe online!

Arcade Parlor just showed up with a yahoo toolbar...I seem to have finally gotten rid of the yahoo stuff but the Arcade Parlor won't go...When I try to uninstall in the control panel it tells me I don't have administrative privledges. Firefox is not allowing me to access anything without marking the page as an exception. Tried downloading your spy ware here but it won't go....any thoughts?

Great fix! In XP there was no installed program to remove but the Firefox fix was simple. Thanks
