What affect does the adware have on the machine

Adware might be able to set up onto the OS without you even seeing, through free programs. If you someone who often acquires freeware then you should know that it may have certain items attached to it. Such as ad-supported software, reroute viruses and other potentially unwanted applications (PUPs). Default settings will not tell you of anything being adjoined, and offers will install without you even noticing. Opting for Advanced (Custom) mode would be better instead.
