How potentially unwanted programs are defined

Potentially unwanted programs are defined as software programs written by legitimate companies that can alter the security state or the privacy policy of the computer on which they are installed. This software can but does not necessarily include spyware, adware, and dialers. These programs can be downloaded with a program that the user wants. Security-minded users recognize such programs and, in some cases, remove them.
