    Hi, I'm wondering if adding Terms of Service to an Adware, warning the user that it will install popups and all that stuff, makes the Adware legal. Same question can be made regarding other kinds of malwares.

    Regards

    I feel that I shouldn't even dignify this question with a reply, but in fairness,
    I am assuming you are asking an innocent allbeit naiive question....
    The answer is NO.
    WHY?
    Simple, because what you are trying to circumnavigate the spirit of the law by proclaiming it by using (misusing IMHO) the letter of the Law.
    Spirirt of Law > Letter of Law
