Currently Notice: Undefined variable: incprefix in /data/www/xblock/product_show.php on line 123 25,860,543 Spy Software Busted!
Full Name:
Type: Adware
Also Known As: WhenUsearch SideFinder WhenU-Search BrowserToolbar
Created By: WhenU
Danger Level: 1
Category Description: Program that delivers advertisements on your PC.

Note that many websites have their own advertising, unrelated to adware.

Adware is any software application in which advertising is displayed while the program is running. The authors of these applications include additional code that delivers the ads, which can be viewed through pop-up windows or through a bar that appears on a computer screen and sometimes through text links or in integrated search results. Adware may or may not track personal information. It may also gather information anonymously or in aggregate only. Users should check the EULA and Privacy policy to ensure if the adware on their machines conforms to their standards.
Comment: The Toolbar selects which ads and offers to show you based on several factors, including: which webpages you visit, search terms you use while searching online, your local zip and/or country code, and content of the webpages you view. The Toolbar displays contextual ads and offers in the form of rotating text links accessible from within the application.

Note: WhenU has made changes in distribution practices and to our knowledge no longer uses third parties or bundling to distribute their application. Distribution appears to be in-house only and bundles only contain WhenU products. Research shows that WhenU now makes it clear that advertising will be shown in the End-User License Agreement (EULA)

Users who desire this shopping application should not remove.
