Do you know what ArcadeYum is?
If you are offered to install ArcadeYum onto the computer, you need to think about this very carefully. The free application may be presented as an additional offer when you install other suspicious programs, and so we recommend that you assess these as well. Computer users are advised to delete ArcadeYum because this browser add-on may produce advertisements which should be ignored for the sake of virtual security. Any kind of interaction with the advertisements associated to the adware may be dangerous and may expose you to different risks. Therefore, if you are still thinking about installing the program – rethink this, and if you have downloaded it already – remove it.ArcadeYum screenshot

The so-called ArcadeYum Addon is compatible with Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers. As mentioned already, the program may be offered to you as an addition, and our researchers have found out that you have to beware of Fusion installers if you do not want the extension being installed. Note that bundled installers may offer the installers of YTDownloader, MyPCBackup, WebInternetSecurity, and other potentially undesirable programs. If you want to delete these applications, we have removal guides for them as well. Of course, it is unlikely that you will need to worry about the removal of third-party software if you install ArcadeYum from the official website arcadeyum.com. Even though there is no download button on the site, you will be presented with an installer as soon as you click the Premium button and attempt to play one of the listed games. This is exactly how Arcade Safari, Arcade Frontier and TopArcade Hits work as well. If you want to delete these programs, follow the ArcadeYum removal guide.
If you do not fear that the banner and pop-ups ad displayed after installing ArcadeYum will represent unreliable parties and offers, you may want to postpone the removal of this adware. Of course, our virtual security researchers indicate that the risks are too high and that ArcadeYum removal should be performed right away. If you decide to delete the program, you can follow the instructions below. Note that manual removal may be different for other running adware or PUPs. You can install automatic malware removal software to fight these infections.

In non-techie terms:
ArcadeYum is, unmistakably, an advertisement-supported program. Even though the program itself is not malicious, we recommend having it deleted from the operating system. You can install automatic malware removal software or you can perform the manual removal. We recommend the first option because you may have to delete additionally running threats, and because your operating system requires better protection.
