What does that mean? There are ads but there are no ads? Very confusing. I couldn't find it on Sourceforge (a site that is dedicated to open source software).
although I haven't used it in a while I don't remember seeing any 'ads' while using it?. It does take you to web page (which you can disable later) for initial configuration during installation if that's what you mean?. I got some pretty good results from using it though.
My mistake...I should have said freeware as opposed to open source. Sorry if I confused you.
