What is ZGame Toolbar?

ZGame Toolbar is a Visicom Media (VMN) toolbar that integrates with major web browsers including Google Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. The toolbar is an ad-supported program that is designed to display advertisements within the program itself, modify the browser's home page and search settings in order to capture web search traffic as well as collect and aggregate usage information and statistics. The toolbar is typically bundled with 3rd party programs in order to help monetize free (and some paid) software.

Should the software be removed from the user's PC, the settings will need to be manually reverted back.
