Do you know what Gaming New Tab is?
Gaming New Tab is a browser extension that at the moment is compatible only with Google Chrome. According to our research, this program was created by Mindspark Interactive Network, an infamous company that has created hundreds of browser toolbars. It appears that the company is changing its direction by creating Chrome extensions instead, and this might be because of the bad reputation that the toolbars have gained over time. In fact, the company has even changed its company name to “In Mind, Inc.” Some researchers believe that this is a sign of deception, in which case it is obvious that Gaming New Tab requires removal. If you are trying to delete Gaming New Tab from your PC, you are in the right place, because we have tested this program, and we know how to get rid of it.Gaming New Tab screenshot

Our research team has found that Gaming New Tab is promoted at lp.inmind-games.com. Unfortunately, most users acquire this program packaged with third-party installers, in which case it is very likely that other unreliable programs are active on your PC as well. Whether your Chrome browser was infected with Gaming New Tab, WorldNews New Tab, or some other InMind extension, you might have to delete them along with other potentially unwanted programs, adware, and even malicious programs. Even though it is obvious why malicious programs require removal, most users do not understand why Gaming New Tab requires removal as well. Although this program promises to provide access to your favorite game sites, in reality it is just another potentially unwanted program that possibly requires removal.
Needless to say, Gaming New Tab is activated via the new tab on your Google Chrome browser. Once you open a new tab, you will find links to online games, as well as a search tool. Even though this search tool is supposedly “powered by Ask,” our researchers have found that the search results may be modified. This is another reason to remove Gaming New Tab from your operating system. Of course, it is most important to get rid of this PUP to disable security backdoors that can be opened via any of the third-party links presented. We strongly recommend using an automated malware remover to clean your operating system in case other threats were installed along with Gaming New Tab, and you want to protect your virtual security in the future.

In non-techie terms:
