Description of CommonName :
CommonName is a keyword service where you can type a company name instead of the complete URL when you want to view a website. Newer variants now have pop-under advertising; some add a keyword field in Internet Explorer while others take over the searches in IE's tool bar. It also tracks user web activity when you make a request, i.e. open the advertisement.

It is highly recommended that this application be removed. Non-removal of this application will expose you to unscrupulous advertisers who will constantly send you numerous unsolicited ads.
