An adware is any software that plays, displays or downloads
advertisements to a computer automatically. Pop-ups usually take the
form of these advertisements so as to generate income for the
advertiser. Generally speaking, adware does not pose any danger.
However, some adware comes with integrated spyware that are invasive to
privacy.Adwares are designed to record the sites which the users
visit and present them with advertisements or types of goods that are
similar to the sites frequently visited. It is way wherein the
developers cover their developmental costs; they may even allow users to
use the program for free or at a special discounted price. The income
generated in advertisements can be used for further development of the
software but some users may see these adware as interruptions from their
undertakings.Not all adware are used just for advertising, some
are also sharewares. They are sharewares because one has the option to
use it as an adware that pops-up advertisements or pay for the
registered version and use the program without the interruption of ads.
An example of a shareware is a certain e-mail client. Here, users are
given a free trial period which all features are available. After such
time, the user will be given options: to use the shareware for free but
with limited functionality, use it with full function but it will
display advertisements or a paid mode that allows the user to use it
with full functions but without the pop-ups.Some adwares can also
be classified as malwares (malicious software) or spywares because they
steal information from the users. Once, a certain corrupted many
computers by forcing it to display advertisements that were obscene and
sent browsing details to other parties.It is very important to
remove these because as mentioned, some will include spywares and most
of them run without the user realizing it. They can also dramatically
slow down the performance of the computer. Many anti-virus programs have
been written that include the detection and removal of adwares, almost
all of them in fact. Some may offer a separate adware and spyware
removal package. There are also very good anti-virus programs that are
free to download which already includes adware and spyware removal.
