What is spyware, adware, etc? Adware is software that is bundled with other software and helps shareware authors to get money in other way, not by selling their software. If you find the banners annoying you usually can remove them by paying the licensing fee. While this may be great, the downside is that the advertising companies also install additional tracking software on your system. This software uses your internet connection and reports statistics to the server. According to the privacy policies of the companies, there will be no sensitive data collected from your PC. But in any case you have a server that sends data, downloads software and runs it. Not all adware products are spyware. There are also products that do display advertising but do not install any tracking mechanism on your system.
