What is FreebieForth?
FreebieForth is a program that promises free samples and coupons, but instead you get these annoying ads that show up as pop-ups while searching the Internet. Also, the application can open your browser windows and load suspicious websites that contain various surveys, commercial ads, and other offers. Due to these activities, our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com classified FreebieForth as adware application. Usually, such programs are created to generate advertising revenue from the clicks of its users that get some special offers or discounts, but such benefits are doubtful as these ads come from unreliable third-party websites. If you do not want this irritating application on your computer, we would advise you to delete it with the removal instructions provided below the text.
What does FreebieForth do?
As the application settles in, it creates Registry entries in DOM Storage key that is used to store Internet Explorer user’s data. Most likely, it will gather information about your browsing habits, e.g. search keywords, clicked ads, visited web pages, etc. Such information could be used to create a unique user’s profile that would help decide what ads could be tempting to the user. It is a very important process, if the adware’s creators receive money from every click.
Where does FreebieForth come from?
There are two main scenarios that could explain how this adware settled into your computer.

That could mean you have a browser hijacker in your system and it modifies your search results by adding suspicious ads and so on. The other option is that the application was suggested in the setup wizard of the freeware that you might have recently installed. Most likely, it happened because you did not read the setup wizard’s steps carefully.
