Advertising software includes a pretty long list of various species, but the very famous of them are adware, browser toolbars and redirects. You have to realize that they are noy the helpful programs that offer other useful software - they were made to spam with pop-up windows and links. Hackers try really hard to convince you that suchlike tools are useful: they describe them very well and promise great efficiency and benefit. What do these programs really do?

  • Contamination with a hijacker invites another kind of problem. Instead of banners they redirect their victims to the dangerous websites. These tools help the foul website owners to increase traffic and endangers the whole PC.
  • Adware's principal property is that it inserts useless ads on each website that the victim views and sometimes, on the desktop. Fraudsters try to make adware seem good, so it can be masked as one of dozens of useful tools for data archiving, text redacting, web-browsing, etc. Advertising comes up as distinct blocks in search results, links or pop-ups.
  • Toolbars are not so irritating as adware and hijackers, but except showing ads they also gather the information about victim's system and about his actions in the Web. Such information is of significant value for any advertising organization.

All these utilities along and each of them could be used for different types of Internet-scam.

It should be noted that these issues frequently appear for other causes, not related to advertising utilities. PC is slowing down because all adware is running endlessly and never turns off.
