AdChoices (can also be found as AdChoices virus) is a very questionable program, which has been included to 'adware' or a 'potentially unwanted program' category. The main reason why we say so is that it has ability to display enormous amount of commercial pop-up ads every time people start their browsing. Beware that these messages mostly appear on the right side of the desktop and report about such tricky things as discounts, price comparisons, deals, sales, coupons and other tricky things. They should show up only when people decide to visit Youtube, Facebook and other web sites, but you may also notice them as soon as you open your web browser and sometimes even when you keep it closed. Besides, just like any other adware-type program, AdChoices may infiltrate your PC system without a proper permission asked. It does that with a help of freeware.In order to avoid that, you should start monitoring installation of the freeware. More tips on how can you avoid AdChoices virus can be found in next paragraph.
To sum up, no matter that this program is not a virus, it may cause lots of inconveniences on your computer. No matter that it should inform you about various commercial deals, such as coupons, discounts, price comparisons and similar things, it may start causing serious havoc.
