What is Adware?

An adware is a dangerous piece of software that automatically displays advertisements both when installing a program and to redirect the search to advertising websites, thus collecting information from your searches.

Sometimes it goes unnoticed and is designed to generate revenue for its developers.

To detect it, we have to check the operation of the browser, if there have been changes on the home page also in the toolbar or extensions, if applications have been installed without our permission and if pop-up windows are opened in our browser.
