Also known as
malware, sneakware, or
adware is a type of software program thatís installed without a users
consent or knowledge while another program is being installed on the computer.
Much like spyware, an adware program is used to track an individuals
activities and/or habits to help companies advertise more efficiently.
Adware is commonly
installed on a computer with free programs to help support the development of
that program. Like spyware, adware can be located and removed from a computer
using software utilities available on the
Internet. See our spyware page for
examples and recommended programs.
