what is this exactly, is it loaded with spyware?

Usually a time-limited trial of a program. At the end of 30 days or whatever you either pay for the program or it stops functioning.

No it's not loaded with spyware. It's software which you can try for a limited time,30 days say, and if you like and it suits you you pay the author for it otherwise you delete it.

Shareware might still be loaded with spyware, as might Freeware.

Shareware simply means you can try for x days or y uses before you must either uninstall it or buy a license for it.

Oh and some stop functioning after that period, some don't and some disable key features...
