Spyware and Adware
On the Internet, spyware is programming that is put in someone's computer to secretly gather information about the user and relay it to advertisers or other interested parties. Spyware can get in a computer as a software virus or as the result of installing a new program. Data collecting programs that are installed with the user's knowledge are not, properly speaking, spyware
Adware is any software application in which advertising banners are displayed while the program is running. This practice has been dubbed spyware and has prompted an outcry from computer security and privacy advocates.
