The adware may insert tons of ads directly to the pages that you visit, creating a sense that the advertisements has been added by the creators of the page.

Moreover, the adware has the ability to collect a huge number of personal information about you (your ip address, what is a web page you are viewing now, what you are looking for on the Internet, which links you are clicking), which can later transfer to third parties.
