How to Remove Wild Tangent Malware

Wild Tangent is technically not considered spyware or malware. It is actually a web driver used for many online and offline games. However, because it does use built-in modules allowing it to collect information about your computer and update automatically, you may not be comfortable having it on your system. Since it loads into your Control Panel, uninstalling it can be tricky. It will require you to do more than remove it by going to "Add/Remove Programs" on your Control Panel. Follow these steps.
