What is adware?

Adware is a type of software that displays advertising banners while a program is running. Most adware is also spyware. In many cases, freeware developers offer their products free-of-charge to users, receiving financial support from adware marketers by bundling adware into freeware products.
You should carefully read the terms of use before installing any freeware or shareware. The use of freeware and shareware may sometimes imply that you agreed to install adware systems as well.
