What is Adware?

Adware is software that shows advertisements on your computer system

Adware is software that shows advertisements on your computer system. This may include banners, pop-ups, or other forms, often embedded in other software. While not always harmful, it can slow down your system or internet connection.

Adware can become a serious problem when no consent was given by the owner of the system. Especially if it hijacks software components like the internet browser. Typically it results in showing more advertisements and hard to remove from the system.
