However the aim of the adware is quite different. These are programs designed to show ads on the desktop and generate revenue for them. Revenue is not only for the adware’s creator, but also for third-party advertisers. These ads may be very attractive and can often trick users into clicking on them. Such ads should be avoided because they can forward the user to unwanted and infected sites. If the computer system is not well protected, it can get infected with a virus or malware.
