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: NetPal is an IE Browser Helper Object from Mindset Interactive, the people behind Transponder. It does similar things to the Transponder range, but is quite different internally.

Manual Removal: The software installs netpal.dll into your Windows System directory. Before you can delete this file you will need to deregister it. Enter the following commands from the command line for Windows 95/98/Me:

cd "%WinDir%\System"
regsvr32.exe /u netpal.dll
Or for Windows NT/2000/XP just:

regsvr32 /u "%WinDir%\System32\netpal.dll"
After doing this and restarting the computer you can delete the file. You can also delete 'kernellos.dll' in the same directory, which is a data file used by NetPal (and isn't a DLL at all), and the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Destiny
