Facebook Adware may result in your computer system malfunctioning,so it is very important that you are able to both detec as well as automatically delete the malicious Facebook Adware.

The adware is able to spread via Facebook, because of its applications that were introduced in 2007. When you allow a Facebook application (such as FarmVille or even Love Horoscope), to access your personal data, you might also be allowing various types of adware to access your computer or your mailbox. For example, having allowed one application to use your personal data, you might constantly receive spam emails from the adware, offering you one service or the other, that you don't really need.

For this reason, you have to seriously think before allowing an application to access your personal data. After all, before you press the ALLOW button, it does inform you that once allowed the application will be able to access such information as:

". . . your name, your profile picture, your birthday, your hometown location, your current location, your political views, your activities, your interests, your relationship status, your dating interests, your relationship interests, your summer plans, your Facebook user network affiliations, your education history, your work history, copies of photos in your Facebook Site photo albums, and a list of user IDs mapped to your Facebook friends."
