Most PUAs have one main purpose - to generate revenue for their developers and other parties by collecting information, delivering various intrusive ads and causing unwanted redirects. Quite often developers present these potentially unwanted apps as "useful" tools, however, only a small part of these applications deliver the promised functionalities or give any other value for their users.

How did adware install on my computer?

Potentially unwanted applications usually get downloaded and installed through clicked intrusive or when they are bundled into other, intentionally downloaded/installed software. "Bundling" is a deceptive marketing method that developers use to trick people into downloading/installing PUAs together with other software. Typically, they hide these bundled/additionally included apps in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings, options of the download or installation setups. They do not disclose information about the these apps being bundled properly in. However, in most cases skipping the download or installation steps without checking any of the mentioned settings/options often is what actually causes download and installations of potentially unwanted applications.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

Download software from official/trustworthy sources and avoid using third party software downloaders/installers, unofficial websites, Peer-to-Peer networks like torrent clients, eMule and other similar tools. Also, do not skip the software download/installation steps, make sure that you have checked all available "Custom", "Advanced" and other settings/options and deselected all offers to download or install some unwanted apps. Intrusive ads displayed on questionable pages may look legitimate at first, however, not all of them actually are. If clicked, they usually redirect people to untrustworthy websites such as gambling, pornography, adult dating and so on. If these ads and unwanted redirects are a regular problem, check what are the installed programs on your computer/operating system and extensions, add-ons or plug-ins on your web browser. Remove all unwanted/suspicious programs (apps) as soon as possible. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
