Is there any reason you shouldn't run Adware on your own server? it seems like a good source of HPD, at low risk.

Yes.  At least if your active.  Adware will use up your BW which means you will upload and download slower.

Also, I wouldn't install it unless you already have the corresponding Anti-Virus, because getting it off your computer can be a real hassle.

Having run the experiment myself, I offer the following advise to all:


1) Running Adware on yourself is a way to get a secure stream of money
2) It will eat up bandwidth
3) You do need an appropriate antivirus to remove it
4) Running said antivirus will delete it: Don't use the only copy of your best virus.


If you take all of that into account, go ahead. I highly suggest it for long periods of inactivity, but not for normal use.

I might even consider it for overnight use if there was an easy way to make copies: load it before bed, delete it when I log on in the morning, and collect 6-10 hours of profits. However, the bandwidth required to copy is better spent uploading Adware to foreign servers.

Just a little cheat which is legal by the ToS.   If you are a gold member then you only use BW for uploading to the FTP server.  Downloading from it is instant.
