WinAd Client Information
WinAd is a self-installing adware application by eXact Advertising that connects to multiple servers and downloads pop-up advertisements, as well as other adware and trackware. Some types of WinAd have been known to remotely allow access to your computer where they attempt to perform malicious actions to try and cause damage to your PC.
WinAd runs a process “winad.exe,” which monitors your browsing habits and sends the data back to the creator’s servers for analysis. Once they determine what you are searching for, they present pop-up ads related to your previous searches.
While the pop-ups are simply annoying, the real danger is in the fact that they may attempt to harm the stability of your computer. For this reason alone, you should remove WinAd ASAP. Although there are a number of software programs available to remove spyware, don’t waste your time. When you have a malicious spyware program as serious as this one, you want to go with anti-spyware software that doesn’t play around.
