Adware, What Is It?

Adware is a type of Spyware program that displays some kind of banner advertising as you're surfing the Internet. Most of the time, you will pick these programs up if you download other programs such as freeware, shareware, and file-sharing programs. Adware, once it is on your system, can also send back information collected about you without you knowing it and without your permission.

If you're getting an excessive amount of pop-ups, chances are great that you have some kind of Adware on your computer. Depending on the program, these pop ups can just come one right after another. It gets really annoying!

It's well advised that if you are going to download any kind of program from the Internet, to read the fine print in the user agreement. A lot of times it will tell you that you will be sent advertising by downloading their program. A very good example is these free file-sharing programs, so read carefully.

Adware is not as dangerous as other infections, but it can end up being very annoying to you. A good way to combat this is to get a good Anti-Spyware program and run it on a regular basis. Get one that updates itself to keep up to date on this junk called Adware.
