There is a category of potentially malicious applications that are known as Adware and Adware.Trace is a typical example of them. Adware exists to generate advertisements on infected computers and each time the user clicks on an Ad delivered by Adware.Trace the owner/distributor will earn a bonus from the site visited by the Ad-click. Would that have been all Adware.Trace would be merely annoying, but not dangerous. Unfortunately that is not the case. The main problem with these Ads is there is very little quality control over what kind of Ads are displayed in these application. Very often virus distributors, hackers and other types of criminals use Adware generated Ads to spread their viruses or scam software. Every time you click on an Ad created Adware.Trace you run the risk of arriving on a dangerous page and becoming infected with a virus.

Don’t click on the Ads and certainly never install anything Adware.Trace offers you

Apart from the above-mentioned dangerous sites advertised through the Ads there are more potential dangers associated with Adware.Trace. It is possible that the Adware will try to advertise software to your directly. This is usually some PC-health related programs such as anti-malware or anti-virus, optimization software, HDD scanners and more.

Reputable programs safely advertise through shady applications like Adware.Trace. What you will be offered is likely just bloatware – programs that don’t actually do anything, but report fake error messages and over exaggerate or make up problems. Be wary of these.

Adware.Trace can try to scare you into downloading such software by playing tricks on you via the Ads. Pop-ups could be made to look exactly like system messages, which will to scare you into downloading the above mentioned bloatware. And if it is not bloatware it will be either a virus or a piece of software with very questionable quality.
