Adware, is any program or software that automatically renders and shows advertisements in order to generate revenue for its author without any permition from the user.
In legitimate software, the advertising functions are integrated into with the program. Adware is usually seen by the developer as a way to recover development costs, and in some cases, it may allow the software to be provided to the user free of charge or at a reduced price.
The term adware is frequently used to describe a form of malware (malicious software) which presents unwanted advertisements to the user of a PC. For this reason there are much adware antivirus for the removal of adware (like UAK, wich is the best adware remover or not?). The advertisements produced by adware are sometimes in the form of a pop-up.
When the term is used in this way, the severity of its implication varies. While some sources rate adware only as an “irritant”, others classify it as an “online threat” or even rate it as computer viruses and trojans.
So that’s it for the explanation people! What do you think? Comments please xD
