It covers spyware and adware. There pretty much the same thing. Spyware well...spy's on things like credit card number and such and adware brings up all these pop-ups and stuff. It'd really a type of marketing strategy. Companies get back the information from the adware programs seeing what websites you go to and bombard you with ad that they think you would like.

silly companies... don't they know that NO ONE likes pop ups? even ones that are in the subject im interested in. i would never intentionally click on one. that only supports pop ups. unless its a banner on a site i frequent. i like support to those types.

^ (9/7/2010): Ha, I remember when that was the stuff. My water cooling has since leaked and fried my mobo. So now I'm rocking an MSI laptop with an i5 430m :)
