RetroGamer is a browser extension aimed for those computer users who love playing online games. The RetroGamer Toolbar offers users a search engine powered by Ask.com and links to several gaming websites, including Sonic games. The RetroGamer Toolbar is a product of Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc, which is well-know to security experts and a lot of computer users because of a wide range of themed browser extensions. The toolbar is available for download at download.retrogamer.com and may also be bundled with many other free programs. If you have found the RetroGamer Toolbar installed without your interference, remove it from the computer right now.

As mentioned above, the RetroGamer Toolbar enables you to use the search engine Ask.com. This search provider is a partner of Mindspark Interactive, and, if you took a look at some other Mindspark extensions, you would find that they are also powered by this search provider. Ask.com can be set as the home page and default search provider of your Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. These changes can be made upon launching the setup file of the program, and we strongly recommend that you pay close attention to every page shown by the installation wizard. The next time you download a free program, pay close attention to the installation process so that you do not have to remove unwanted programs afterwards.

Another reason why you should not delay the removal of the RetroGamer Toolbar and Ask.com is that both the search engine and the extension are capable of monitoring you. People behind these products are interested in your preferences, browser settings, and other anonymous information that can be accessed through your Internet browsers. Information about your browsing behavior may be shared with third parties, which you can prevent by implementing a program that can remove the RetroGamer extension from your computer.

Below you will find our step-by-step instructions on how to uninstall the RetroGamer Toolbar and restore your browser settings. Note that this procedure is time-consuming, so, if you want to have the extension removed for you, implement our recommended security program SpyHunter. This malware and spyware prevention program is programmed to eliminate unreliable Mindspark programs and many other programs aimed at deceiving you. For example, it can safeguard the system against ransomware, fake anti-virus programs, browser hijackers, and many other unreliable programs.
