Advertising software (or adware) is downloaded and installed on your computer secretly along with a known application. The examples of such applications are Qvo6.com, Delta Toolbar, Conduit, Do-searches. The adware applications are installed as browser add-ons and change your default homepage and search engine. Your attempts to change the browser settings are only efficient within a browser session. The adware will apply its settings again once the browser is restarted.

To avoid installation of adware, pay attention to the options offered during the installation of apps.
