Type: Adware
Also Known As: keen value powersearch incredifind perfect nav power search Search Upgrader
Created By: euniverse
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: The More info blurb from within the program tells us that KeenValue collects alarmingly large amounts of personal data, displays annoying advertisements, and also can read third-party cookies and transfer that information back to the maker.

Various variants of this stuff exist:
- Powersearch toolbar
- Incredifind adware
Comment: The PowerSearch toolbar is a customised version of Visicom Media's ?Dynamic Toolbar?, other variants of which are not known to be parasitic.
