Do you know what Mahjong World Contest is?
Mahjong World Contest is a game which users should be able to play after they install software from mahjongworldcontest.com. The game itself works on the newest versions of Windows, which indicates that the publisher of Mahjong World Contest wants to reach many people. Even though Mahjong World Contest will really allow you to play a game for free, the program itself is not the most trustworthy one. In fact, specialists usually put it into the category of advertising-supported applications. You are the one who can decide whether to keep this program installed or get rid of it, but, in our opinion, you should definitely not keep Mahjong World Contest adware just because it allows you to play a game. We will provide you with the removal instructions in the second part of this article.
Research has shown that Mahjong World Contest belongs to the PullUpdate family. This family is comprised of hundreds of programs that act very similarly, i.e. show commercial ads to drive traffic to particular websites. There is a possibility that the publisher of Mahjong World Contest gets money for that, so it will definitely not stop showing those commercials. If you already see ads on your screen, you can erase them all by deleting Mahjong World Contest from the system. We suggest doing that as soon as possible because advertisements provided for you are not only very irritating, but might also cause harm to your PC indirectly. We say “indirectly” because they will not download malicious applications on the system; however, you might be taken to an untrustworthy website after clicking on any of those ads. Malicious software might be hiding on those websites and it might enter your system unnoticed. Actually, you might not understand that you have undesirable programs installed for a long time because they often act behind a user’s back.Mahjong World Contest screenshot
