Project Free TV is an online service provider, which allows legal copyright owners upload, store and display various types of media (tv shows and movies in most of the cases). Once this media is uploaded, people can watch it online for free at free-tv-video-online(dot)me. However, Internet is full of different stories about annoying ads that are displayed on this site when people are watching their videos. Some of them have even reported about sound ads and similar notifications that come from Project Free TV. It seems that changing the browser doesn't help in this situation, because Project Free TV ads show up no matter if you use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer.

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.
