System Process
Type: Adware
Also Known As: AdClicker-DF (McAfee) BHO Plugin
Danger Level: 5
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: System Process installs as a Browser Helper Object for Internet Explorer and displays popup advertisements. It also changes Internet Explorer browser settings.

Adds a lot of site names under "Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\P3P\History\" and sets their value to "5". During the uninstallation process, the value is changed to "1", so that they are always allowed.

From the site liscense:
System Process does anonymously collect and use the information of the following kinds: At times we may ask you to participate in a voluntary survey.

In the event that System Process merges with any other company, transfers, or sells substantially all of its assets or capitol stock, to a third party, all collected information would be included in the merger (?Merger?), transfer or sale and that company would be bound by these Terms and Conditions, just as we are bound today.

Distribute advertisements and internet search results to the user or other users using the System Process software as part of System Process's network.
