You also have a reason to assume that there is more than just one adware application on your computer. As we have mentioned in the first paragraph, WebAdSystem has a homepage at webadsystem.com. However, it is very unlikely that computer users download adware directly. In fact, the most common method of adware distribution is bundled downloads. It means that a set of programs travel together in one file. Users often download bundled programs from third-party websites. WebAdSystem might also be hiding behind fake upgrade pop-ups that offer you to update your Adobe or Flash plug-ins.
What is more, sometimes users do not even notice that they install unwanted applications, because they skip installation steps to setup programs as fast as possible. Thus, we can say that if WebAdSystem enters your computer, it is partially your fault.
Some users may claim that WebAdSystem is not dangerous and it is true in a way that this program does not intend to infect you with malware.

Clicking corrupted ads would lead you to an affiliate website that promotes adware or intends to generate more traffic for financial purposes.
