Hi, I'm Noah, and I'm going to show you how to remove adware. Adware is a type of malicious software, which is often installed unwantingly or unknowingly by the user, which creates a very frustrating environment to work on with your computer because of unrelentless advertisement. Some anti-virus programs will also take care of spyware and adware as well. This is usually very easy to find out, either on the box or on the website.
