A. If you’re getting numerous pop-up advertisements which automatically get around your web browser’s pop-up blocker or appear even when you are not using the web browser, then your PC may be infected by adware.
Is Adware dangerous? Most often, adware installs on the system in a bundle with freeware that you downloaded and installed from the Net. Once it gets inside your computer, it will configure itself to start automatically when the computer launch. Adware can alter web-browser settings, redirect your browser to unwanted web sites, display undesired popups from various third-party ad networks and these annoying advertisements is hard to close.
Even worse, adware has the ability to collect lots of marketing-type data about you that can be later transferred to third parties. You do not know if your home address, account names and passwords are safe.
