Ad banners are another form of advertising that can be used to advertise products to help or protect you, but end up installing spyware, adware trojans or other harmful products. These ads typically target the new computer user who may be unaware of the danger that lurks ahead after clicking on the ad and installing the advertised product.

Your surfing history can be used to determine what sites you have visited. If you are not the only user of your computer, others may be able to find your banking or credit card information from an order form you have filled out or bank account you have logged into.

This can lead to installing spyware, adware or other harmful software. Most search engines do not regulate the ads and to where they take the user.
