AddViewer is another Potentially Unwanted Program (or also known as a PUP) that users do not seem to know when was installed on their machines. This is because such adware-related applications are mainly distributed using pay-per-install bundling method where users do not pay much attention to what is installed beside the desired program. This marketing technique is used quite often when it comes to adware distribution, so computer threat specialists advise users not to practice the 'Next-Next-Next' technique when downloading free software via download and install managers. Ad-supported applications like AddViewer inject browsers with various types of advertisements like banners, pop-ups, offers and in-text ads.
