    Hey guys,
    before I go on with writing this post I want to apologize for my bad english. I give my best and hope you can understand, what I wrote.

    A Friend of me downloaded a software, i didn't got the name of the software anymore. After he sucessfully installed the Software he got a new landing page at Firefox (is the name landing page right? i mean the site that will be shown when you start your Browser). Now on every site he visit are shown some ADs. For example when he is in Facebook there are ADs for example on the left side.

    Do someone know, how that method of money making is called are and how much you can earn by doing that.

    I hope you can understand me and can give me an answer.

    I guess that's malware, which can hijack your browser to add advertisments. Pay Per Install stuff IMO.
