Full Name:
Type: Adware
Also Known As: Timesink tsadbot
Created By: Conducent Technologies, Inc.
Danger Level: 2
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.
Official Description: Uses the Internet to dynamically deliver content to desktop software. Once the content is received, it can be displayed at any time in the application. Content activity information such as advertising impressions and click through data is recorded and sent back to Conducent for daily reporting. Conducent does not provide users with an uninstall feature. Their software provides real-time ad targeting campaigns through the Timesink component TSadbot.exe. Conducent has formed strategic partnerships with most of the major Internet advertising networks.
Comment: The company is now out of business, but its product lives on, although dying out.
