How did adware install on my computer?
It is very common that developers distribute PUAs by including them in downloaders or installers for other programs as optional offers. This distribution method is called "bundling". Users download or install PUAs together with other programs when they leave settings like "Advanced", "Custom" of their setups unchanged.
In other words, when users do not decline offers to download or install additionally included apps. Sometimes, PUAs are distributed via PUAs. Users cause unwanted downloads or installations by clicking deceptive advertisements that are designed to execute certain scripts. Usually, ads of this type appear on shady pages.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Third-party downloaders, installers, Peer-to-Peer networks like torrent clients, eMule, questionable, unofficial pages, etc., should not be used as sources to download or install programs. Quite often, the aforementioned sources are used as tools to distribute various PUAs. Apps (and files) should be downloaded from official websites and via direct links.
Furthermore, downloaders and installers that have "Custom", "Advanced" or other settings (or ticked checkboxes) should be checked for optional offers. Any unwanted offers should be declined before finishing downloads, installations. Otherwise, PUAs will be downloaded or installed alongside programs that have those apps in their downloaders, installers.
Advertisements displayed on untrustworthy pages should not be clicked too. It is common that by clicking those ads open untrustworthy, potentially malicious pages or cause unwanted downloads, installations. All suspicious, unwanted, or unknown extensions, plug-ins, and add-ons that are installed on a browser should be removed.
Programs of this kind that are installed on the operating system should be uninstalled too. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
