Jollywallet is a potentially unwanted program, which spreads around in a form of browser plugin. In most of the cases, it infiltrates computers in a bundle with freeware and shareware, and immediately affects all web browsers that can be found there. As a result, this program starts showing its commercial pop-up notifications when people visit such websites as Wallmart, ebay and Amazon. In most of the cases, Jollywallet ads notify about various promotions, sales and coupons. However, they may also 'warn' you about missing updates and similar things that may trick people into installing such programs as Yontoo, Online HD TV, Incredibar, FB Photo Zoom and other adwares. So, our advise on Jollywallet application is very simple: you should uninstall it if you either find it annoying or haven't installed it by yourself.
Jollywallet can be installed with a help of two different ways. The first method requires going to official Jollywallet's website and downloading this program from it. However, it can also show up on your machine out of nowhere. This method involves deceptive distribution technique, which is based on the installation of freeware and shareware. Typically, such programs are filled with various 'components' and 'optional downloads' that should be unchecked or opted-out when downloading them from the Internet. For that we recommend choosing Custom or Advanced installation. If Jollywallet gets inside the system, it modifies it by adding its own plugin to all web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Once it does that, it starts displaying its pop-up ads and underlined words on websites.

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.
