For instance, users may experience issues related to privacy, browsing safety, or even become victims of identity theft.

Sometimes users download and/or install PUAs because they believe that those apps will be useful in some way. Although, most of them are designed only to generate revenue for their developers. Therefore, such apps should never be downloaded and installed. However, quite often users download and/or install them unknowingly, unintentionally.
How did adware install on my computer?
In some cases PUAs get downloaded and/or installed through clicked intrusive ads, there are ads that cause it by running certain scripts. However, more often it can happens during downloads and/or installations of other programs. To be more precise, when PUAs are included in their download and/or installation setups. This distribution method is called "bundling". Typically, offers to download and/or install additional apps can be found in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings of setups. Although, users often leave them unchanged. bBy leaving those settings unchanged they often agree to download and/or install additionally included apps as well.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
First, software should be downloaded only from official websites and via direct links. It is recommended to avoid using third party downloaders (and installers), Peer-to-Peer networks (e.g., eMule, torrent clients), unofficial sites and other channels of this kind as tools to download or install programs. Another way to prevent PUAs from being downloaded and/or installed is to check "Advanced", "Custom" and other settings of download and installation setups for offers to download and/or install additionally included software and decline those offers. Additionally, unwanted downloads installations can be avoided by not clicking advertisements that are displayed on questionable websites. They often open other untrustworthy pages or cause downloads or installations of unwanted apps. If some unwanted, suspicious plug-in, extension or add-on is already installed on a browser and/or program of this kind is installed on the operating system, then it should be uninstalled as soon as possible. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
