Stats is one of those annoying pieces of adware that is delivered to users via questionable delivery methods. Users might inadvertently install Stats as it is bundled with other freeware. Once installed, Stats will keep track of your browsing history and habits to generate tailored advertisements. At first glance, ads by Stats may seem like useful online ads that promote services and products, but in reality, ads by Stats are generated according to users' habits and browsing history. Consequently, it is not recommended to click on ads by Stats, and it would be best if users ignore them. Clicking on ads by Stats may result in installing additional applications that may have an adverse impact on users' computers and may consume a lot of operating memory. Computer security experts advise users to keep an up-to-date anti-malware tool that would detect the infection and remove the ads by Stats.
