What is Adware?

Adware is a program that displays advertisements when the program is running. The creators of the application, program the software to display ads. This is what they call the annoying pop up and in some cases it feels like your internet explorer has been over-run with ads deeming your computer useless.

There are two forms of adware: the first one is a trusted software that is free and the other is a programming cost which is paid for by advertisements. Operators usually install this software, being fully aware, that they will be subjected to ads when they use it.

The second type of adware is illegitimate software which it will install itself without the users’ permission displaying advertisements. This type of adware is categorized as malicious software installing itself without consent of the user.
