Spyware is software that is installed on your computer surreptitiously intercept or take partial control of interaction with the computer, without your permission.

Adware is considered a legitmate alternative offered to consumers who do not wish to pay for software. Programs, games or utilities can be designed and distributed as freeware. Sometimes freeware blocks features and functions of the software until you pay to register it.

Spyware is considered a malicious program and is similar to a Trojan Horse in that users unwittingly install the product when they install something else. A common way to become a victim of spyware is to download certain peer-to-peer file swapping products that are available today.

Spyware is the language of the Web application-based promotion (& vice versa). It is a way for shareware authors to make money from the product, other than by selling it to users. There's several giant media companies that offer them to place banner ads in their products in exchange for part of the proceeds of sales of the banner.
