What is AnonymizerGadget?

AnonymizerGadget is an adware presented as a proxy application. In the terms of its use the developers state that the program will generate two ads in a day. However, if a user trusts it and installs AnonymizerGadget, he/she will find that this term is violated. From the moment of installation and until the user removes AnonymizerGadget, he/she will see tons of ads of all possible types. Having these ads on every page significantly raises the risks of getting infected by other malware.
