This is from a website of adware pushers. I've removed the name of the programme.

Subject: Hide your adware from all Adware removers
Adware removers are gaining in popularity and they cause a big revenue threat to adware based businesses, as we see our software installations get deinstalled after a period of time that is shorter and shorter, we see our revenues get smaller and smaller.
Why would an honest adware based business
lose revenue just because some adware remover has identifyed it as being something to remove?
We beleive we have the right to hide from
these adware removers as long as we provide a way for the user to uninstall and that he agrees
that the software will be uninstalled only with the provided uninstaller.
It is in that spirit that we created the
solution to the problem :
We have developed software capable of hiding
your software from all adware removers and anti-viruses on a Windows NT/2000/2003/XP machine.
Basically we have filtered the windows kernel
so that we could mofify the behavior of the system itself. So now we can hide anything we want
It can : Hide Registry Keys - Hide Files - Hide Processes. By hiding these 3 key elements from windows, your application won't ever be detected by any adware removers."
