In simple words, the term “adware” means a software elaborated to show advertisements through computers infected by it. With invention of PCs and Internet, adware has been actively increasing its participation in the world wide web by leaps and bounds. It is definitely true that not all ads you see in the Internet are categorized as adware. For example, one might see Google AdWords banners, which are absolutely legitimate and can be disabled by users themselves using a special AdBlock browser plugin. When speaking of adware in general, this definition implies some specific application which, once installed, produces quite annoying advertisement banners, pop-ups and other forms of intrusive product or service promotion. In cases when computers become contaminated with adware plugins like AdBlock often fail to work and removal of these advertisements is quite a difficult challenge, especially when trying to perform the adware uninstall process manually.
