Hi adnam and welcome to Bleeping Computer!
Nice to have you here with us.
WildTangent is a stinky bugger and can be a tiny
headache for PC users. Its information is as follows:

Overview: WildTangent was founded in 1998 by Alex St. John, the principal creator of Microsoft's DirectX multimedia platform. From the beginning, the company's mission has been to enable the delivery of the richest interactive content experiences online using the least amount of bandwidth. To that end, the first version of WildTangent's technology platform, Web Driver 1.0, was released in September 1999. Since then over 50 million people have adopted the WildTangent Web DriverŪ to enrich their online experience.

This is an online gaming package that is installed by a number of third party applications and even OEMs, ISPs and AIM. The games aspect of this is really rather cool. The being installed without you asking for it isn't cool at all.

We gotta wonder why AIM (AOL) would do this to its customers. Anyway, removal is fairly easy and quick.

Post your Wild Tangent question about removal in your OS (XP, ME, 98, 95, etc...) category for quick answers.

Welcome Aboard.
