Typically, the specification of each malicious tool promises that it will be very helpful. Most of adware state that they can support in web-browsing.

All advertising software's actions are targeted at making you pass the link. Yet if you are not interested in hacker's proposals - the click may still be done, to hide an uncomfortable annoying banner.
