Spyware: Steals private information!
Adware: Pop-ups! But what do the creators get out of this?
Virus: Stuffs your computer up!

a program that appears desirable but actually contains something harmful; "the contents of a trojan can be a virus or a worm"; "when he downloaded the free game it turned out to be a trojan horse"

a software program capable of reproducing itself that can spread from one computer to the next over a network; "worms take advantage of automatic file sending and receiving features found on many computers"

As the search type define:word replacing "word" with whatever you want to define.
