Once TinyWallet adware gets onto a computer and attaches to affected internet browser it will access, collect, and change user browser activity, history, bookmarks, themes, homepages, default search engines, and more in order to generate targeted advertisements that it feels are relevant to the internet user’s complete browsing activities or cause unwanted browser redirects and start-ups to questionable search engines.

This potentially unwanted program, sometimes referred to as the TinyWallet virus; though, not technically a computer virus may also bundle with third-party unwanted programs, malware, and malicious traces such as non-beneficial optimization software like PC Speed Clean.
