How did adware install on my computer?
As a rule, users do not download and install potentially unwanted applications on purpose. In some cases they cause it by clicking deceptive advertisements that are designed to execute certain scripts. However, most of the times they download and/or install them alongside with programs that they download and/or install intentionally. More precisely, when PUAs are included in download and/or installation setups as additional offers. This software distribution method is known as "bundling". It works when users do not decline offers to download and/or install PUAs when they download and/or install programs that have those unwanted apps integrated in their setups. Typically, those offers can be declined in "Advanced", "Custom", or other settings of setups, and/or by unticking certain checkboxes.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is recommended to download software from official, trustworthy websites and via direct links. Other sources, tools like third party downloaders (and installers), Peer-to-Peer networks (e.g., torrent clients, eMule), unofficial websites should not be used. Also, it is advised to check if download and/or installation setups have any "Advanced", "Custom" settings and see if they can be used to decline offers to download and/or install unwanted software. As mentioned in the introduction, there are deceptive ads that can cause unwanted downloads and/or installations by running certain scripts, therefore, such ads should not be clicked. Typically, they appear on untrustworthy, dubious websites. If there are any unwanted apps (extensions, add-ons or plug-ins) installed on a web browser, then they should be removed from it. Software of this kind that is installed on a computer should be uninstalled as well. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
