Adware

Adware, or advertising-supported software, is any software package that automatically renders advertisements in order to generate revenue for its author. The advertisements may be in the user interface of the software or on a screen presented to the user during the installation process.

The functions may be designed to analyze which Internet sites the user visits and to present advertising pertinent to the types of goods or services featured there. It can also refer to software that displays unwanted advertisements.
