Adware

Adware, or advertising supported software, is any software package which automatically plays, displays, or downloads advertisements to a computer. 

These advertisements can be in a form of a pop-up or pop-under. The object of the Adware is to generate revenue for its author. Adware by itself, is harmless; however, some adware may come with integrated spyware such as keyloggers and others privacy invasive software.
