ZeroPopUpBar, to distinguish it from the earlier standalone commercial popup-killer of the same name, by the same author. Note there is no connection to the similarly-named "ZeroPopup" by "Tooto Technologies".
ZeroPopUpBar is distributed by viral marketing: some versions, when installed, send an endorsement purporting to be from you to everyone in your e-mail address book.
ZeroPopUpBar is also installed by ActiveX drive-by-download on the search bar pointed to by some variants of the TinyBar parasite (also by the same author).
||Adware - Adware is generally software that displays advertisements. Some advertisers may covertly install adware on your system and generate a stream of unsolicited advertisements that can clutter your desktop and affect your productivity. The advertisements may also contain pornographic or other material that you might find inappropriate. The extra processing required to track you or to display advertisements can tax your computer and hurt your system performance.
