How did adware install on my computer?
In most cases unwanted software (adware, browser hijackers, and other apps of this kind) gets installed through intrusive advertisements or through download or installation setups of other programs. There are ads that, if clicked, run scripts designed to cause unwanted downloads or installations. However, unwanted downloads or installations often happen when people download or install programs that they have download from the Internet intentionally. Quite often unwanted apps are included in their download or installation setups, this method to distribute unwanted apps is called "bundling". Developers hide offers to download or install additional applications in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar sections of various setups. To sum up, PUAs get downloaded or/and installed when people do not dismiss those offers/leave all included settings unchanged.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Programs and files should not be downloaded from unofficial websites, through Peer-to-Peer networks (torrent clients, eMule, and so on), via third party downloaders, etc. Installations should not be done using third party installers as well. The only truly safe way to download software is to use official websites for that. Furthermore, download or installation setups often contain settings like "Custom", "Advanced", etc. As a rule, these settings include offers to download or install additional software. For this reason it is important to check the aforementioned settings and dismiss offers to download or install unwanted applications. Various intrusive ads should not be clicked, they might lead to questionable websites or cause unwanted downloads, installations. If ads of this type appear on most visited websites (or redirects to shady pages happen often), then we advise to remove unwanted extensions, plug-ins or add-ons from a browser programs of this kind from a computer. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
