Unbidden guests are welcome when they are gone.
Royal Raid reminds a guest that comes with your friend. You have invited your friend. However, you do not remember inviting the other guy.
The invited friend would tell you he has agreed that guy invitation with you. You just have failed to read the response to your invitation attentively enough.
Many hosts reasonably decide to send both the invited and uninvited visitors off their house. The invited one retreats promptly. He may make a little quarrel, but soon regretfully departs.
The uninvited guest makes its best to stay. He pretends he cannot hear you trying to conceal at secluded spots and the dark corners. Frankly, he is not the one to leave by suggestion. Brute force is required to make him leave.
Similarly, Royal Raid is a piece of adware that comes along the contents that users actually invite into their devices. They do not scrutinize the response to their invitation. That is, relevant installation agreement tends to be accepted in bulk. Few would scrutinize all its clauses. One of such provisions clearly indicates the adware dubbed Royal Raid is to be installed along with the items the users has aimed at.
Since the user has not been duly notified, he is in rage. Most of the adware installations are followed by the attempts to remove Royal Raid. The adware cannot be uninstalled. That recalls the guest who does not leave as advised. The adware installation persists until after proper Royal Raid ads removal.
