This adware gets into your system as a drive-by download when you are installing a freeware or a pirated program, or sneaks in through spam e-mail attachments. Sometimes it manipulates your consent out of you and makes you download their infected programs thinking they are genuine. That is why you should always be careful when you are choosing software and installing it, you can often prevent malicious programs from entering your computer beforehand.
However, when the adware is in, you will have no trouble recognizing it. It performs a variety of actions in order to advertise, starting at regular advertisements. It does not end here, though, and you will notice it also redirects your queries, displays pop-up ads and flash update boxes, all very intrusive and annoying.

If you find any of the programs below in your computer, you should not hesitate and delete them. Any of them could be a source of this adware infection.
If your computer is infected, but you do not see any of the programs above, check your browsers to see if the programs are not installed as extensions. Also, it is possible that another program is causing the infection, so do check your computer for any programs you do not recognize and programs that have been installed at the approximate time that you noticed the adware.
