What is adware?

Adware is a software application that displays advertisements while a program is running. Advertisements are provided through pop-up windows or bars that appear within the program's user interface. Adware is often created for computers, but it can also be found on mobile devices. The rationale behind adware is that it helps cover program development costs for the software developer and lower or eliminate costs for the user.

Adware generates revenue for its developer by automatically displaying business promotion in the software's user interface or on a screen that appears on the user's face throughout the installation procedure. Plus you can open new tabs, see a change to your home page, see the results of a search engine you've never heard of, or even be redirected to an NSFW web portal.

¿Cómo llegó Win32: Adware-gen a mi computadora?

Win32: Adware-gen a veces se integra en software sin costes (software sin costes) que un usuario ha descargado de algún lugar. Posteriormente de la instalación, el usuario tiene la opción de continuar utilizando el software tal cual con promoción comercial o comprar una versión del software sin promoción comercial.

Software makers pay for ads to appear when you search for certain software. These ads will lead you to download software that may not even install the software you are looking for, but you will still get adware. So while you think all you get is decent free software, you really get a lot of ads.

At the same time replacing ads with its own and withdrawing money from search engines, the adware will also appear with even more questionable offers, such as asking you to install an "update" for Adobe Flash. All this for something that the customer can download for free from the appropriate site. No part of the proceeds goes to the free software developer; in fact, his fame has probably been damaged.

Even if the previous step worked for you, it is likely that the adware has already infected your browser and uninstalling the program will not remove the ads. To clean up the browser, basically restart your search engine (if it has changed) and look for extensions or add-ons that it doesn't recognize.

To reset the search engine:

  • Go to your browser settings and look for the search header. It should be in the general section.
  • From the drop-down menu, select the search engine you want to clean (for example, Google).

To search for an adware extension or add-on, I recommend that you use a third-party tool that displays all the extensions and add-ons from all your browsers in one window, including the hidden ones.

Use an anti-spyware program

Para terminar, posiblemente necesitas un anti-spyware program that works in the background on your computer. Requires a program that can detect and intercept spyware when it tries to access your computer; it should also be able to scan your computer for existing spyware and isolate it. Be sure to keep your anti-spyware program up-to-date with new daily or weekly "definition files" to keep it working effectively. You never want to leave your computer unprotected and exposed to spyware or adware.
