If the software is installed on the computer, it may begin to display interruptive advertisements with text such as ‘Ads By EmailDescontos’ or something similar indicating that this software is the provider. Usually the content such adware providers may redirect to any websites that may or may not pose particular risks for you, such as:

- Redirect you to sites that may situate tracking cookies on your computer that could aggregate your personal information and possibly distribute it.
