9/24: Adware-LesToolbar an Adware Program
September 24, 2004

Adware-LesToolbar is not a virus or trojan, but a direct-marketing adware application. This application generates extra pop-up ads while using Internet Explorer.

This kind of application generally comes bundled with another program, which usually discloses the fact that it is ad-supported. Users agree to have the Adware installed in the license agreement, although they may not realise at first that this file was packaged with the product they installed.
