How did adware install on my computer?
Users often download or install unwanted apps together with other programs. It happens when users do not deselect optional downloads or installations. It can be done using "Manual", "Custom", "Advanced", or other settings that certain downloaders or installers have.
In other cases, users download or install PUAs through advertisements (by clicking on them). There are ads that can execute certain scripts. Unwanted apps can also be distributed through fake installers. Those installers are promoted mostly on deceptive websites.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Files and applications should be downloaded from official (legitimate) web pages. It is not recommended to use other sources (for example, third-party downloaders, unofficial sites). Ads displayed on shady pages can cause unwanted downloads or installations. Thus, those ads should not be trusted/clicked.
Downloaders and installers with any settings (or ticked checkboxes) should be examined/checked for unwanted offers - they can be used to distribute PUAs. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
