Ben Edelman has been going after adware products for years now in a very methodical manner with extensive research. I highly recommend his past posts to help you learn how this stuff works and more importantly how it makes the creators of this junk lots of money.

He has gone after IAC/Ask.com before but today released his latest research and probes into the Google connection as well as the unusual appointment of Chelsea Clinton to IAC's board of directors.

Enjoy

Oracle, please stop sneakily foisting third-party toolbars on us with your Java updates

...and this one.

A close look at how Oracle installs deceptive software with Java updates
