    MALWARE refers to 'Malicious' spyware or adware. also refered to as Trojans. They may give an outward appearance of adware, but can do things such as disable your anti-virus applications, block your access to anti-virus and spyware removal sites, and open your machine for further downloading of trojan applications... And yes, they are a BIG PROBLEM, and are treated just like any other Trojan infection...
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.
