Summary

Adware.Dropper is a family of installers that installs adware without properly notifying the user.

In order to be considered proper notification, bundled adware must have at least one screen that requires user interaction to accept the license agreement. The page should contain the names of any adware and a brief note about the implications it may have for the user. There should also be a link to a webpage where more information about the software is available.
