Adware

Adware is advertising-supported software that displays pop-up advertisements
whenever the program is running. The software is usually available via free download from the Internet, and it is the advertisements that create revenue for the company. Although seemingly harmless (aside from intrusiveness and annoyance of pop-up ads), adware can install components onto your computer that track personal information (including your age, gender, location, buying preferences, surfing habits, etc.). Most advertising supported software doesn't inform you that it installs adware on your system, other than through a buried reference in a license agreement. In many cases the software will not function without the adware component. Some Adware will install itself on your computer even if you decline the offer.
