Abstrakt Abstract:

This thesis is about adware, which is very popular today. The adwares are used to, among other things, down- and upload files from other users on the Internet. One thing that most users of such programs are not aware of is that many of the adwares contain spyware. These spywares install themselves simultaneously with the adwares. Two of the spyware features is to generate pop-ups in the web browser and to direct advertisment from the users web habits. In some cases the users can protect themselves against pop-ups by installing additional software. To investigate these problems, five adwares have been exposed to five tests.
