What is adware?

Adware is a program that displays advertisements while people are browsing online. Advertisements appear in a web browser, pop-up windows, special toolbars or within the host program. Adware also can gather information about user’s habits and interests. Once it collects what it needs, it sends it out through a background Internet connection. Such behavior allows adware vendors to deliver targeted advertisements to the end user and collect general statistics. However, it may also be used for stealing people’s private data.

Adware is divided into parasitical and legitimate applications. Illegal advertising programs are very similar to spyware parasites and often have some of their functions. They can be installed without user's knowledge and start working every time a computer is rebooted. However, they are less dangerous than rogues because the most of such parasites are primarily intended to collect user’s personal information for marketing and advertising purposes. Unfortunately, you can never know what other purposes it can be used for.

•  Appearance of annoying pop-up ads
•  Appearance of banners and in-text ads

I just discovered that I have had this on my computer (windows 8) for about a month. I believe it was attached to some image converting software that was downloaded a month ago. No matter what I do to remove it, it will not uninstall. It seems to have blocked any way to stop it from running on my computer. I also am having issues with Firefox not displaying pages and being very slow. It re-routes pages to malicious looking pages that Avast blocks.

I run windows 7 on my laptop. Not sure if this solution would work for windows 8. I was having trouble removing buzzsearch program from the control panel. I kept getting a popup that said I need to be an administrator to change program settings. My login account is an administrator account, but it got me thinking there are some fancy "block uninstall attempt" code in the program itself. So I restarted my computer in safe mode (pressing F8 when starting the computer will allow you the option of starting in safe mode with minimal drivers loaded). Once is safe mode, I was able to remove the program through the control panel without problems. Once completed, I restarted the laptop in routine fashion. Viola, the program was removed. Currently, looking through affected programs (internet explorer and Firefox) to see how they run now. Also running my virus software to make sure things are clean from that side. Hope this info helps if it gets to you.
