Introduction  A security and utility software application, SpeedMaxPC provides users with an easy way to maintain, secure, and optimize their computers. SpeedMaxPC offers protection from common computer threats, including viruses, malware, and adware.

About Adware  Adware is a type of software that is downloaded to computers for advertising purposes. Usually downloaded unknowingly, adware can present itself in many forms, from invasive pop-up and banner ads to constant redirections and unwanted hyperlinks. Some adware programs show no signs that they are on your computer while they quietly track your browsing habits by collecting IP addresses, search queries, and other information.

Conclusion  Originally a legitimate form of internet advertising, adware has become increasingly invasive over the years. Most adware infections are contracted from free program downloads, but without proper system protection, simply visiting a website that contains adware can cause an infection. The best way to prevent adware problems is by avoiding software offered by unknown companies. It is also a very good idea to install an anti-virus product on your computer. If your computer is already infected with adware it can be removed by using an adware removal application like SpeedMaxPC.
