YouTubeNoAds is adware that may display unwanted pop-up advertisements, discount coupons, offers and deals when computer users are shopping online on shopping related websites or visiting other websites. YouTubeNoAds may install itself on Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome without a PC user's approval. YouTubeNoAds may circulate and be delivered through packaged free applications that computer users can download from questionable download websites on the Internet. When the PC user decides to install a free program, it may have extra toolbars, browser extensions, add-ons or plug-ins embedded in the installation package These additional programs, particularly YouTubeNoAds, may be marked as optional tools, but if the PC user does not take a check box off for including them, he may end up with undesired system changes on the PC. YouTubeNoAds may trace the computer user's surfing habits and transmit gathered browsing details for targeted advertising purposes.
