    Yes it is an adware indeed. While installing, there is an option to enable some search bar or not to install it. Choose the latter and it will be adware free. They have kindly made it voluntary for us to support them via the bar or elsewise.

    daemon contain whenu.savenow which is spyware. It isn't much of a prob. install daemon.
    Goto run>msconfig
    in startup , remove whenu.savenow.
    Then do a spyscan and remove whenu.
    Just ignore the messages the scaner says abt the installer and done...

    Use lavasoft or webroot for best results
