That is odd, to say the least, considering freeware is often bundled with malware. Users seem to think that, not reading the terms and conditions, and agreeing to everything in haste, is a sublime idea. It’s only a good idea if you WISH to end up with adware like BingTracker.

However, don’t think that the program is throwing ads your way for no reason. The ads you’re seeing are ones chosen specifically for you and have a specific purpose. Immediately after infection, the application spends some time monitoring your browsing experiences so as to understand your likes and dislikes. It gets to know you and learns which ads will have a better shot at sparking your interest and result in a click. Then it bombards you with them. After all, clicks are of great importance for an ad-supported program like BingTracker. Every click is profit for the people behind the tool. But the application doesn’t spend time observing your browsing habits only so it gets to know you better. It is programmed to keep track of every move you make and catalog everything. Once it feels it has collected enough data on you, it proceeds to send it to the aforementioned individuals, who can do with it whatever they please. Don’t give them access to your private details!
