The developers of Computer Chair employ a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling' (stealth installation of additional programs with the chosen software) to install this adware on Internet browsers without users' permission. Since most users do not pay close enough attention when downloading and installing software, bundling is extremely effective. Many users skip most/all of the download/installation procedures, unaware that bogus apps are commonly hidden within the 'Custom' or 'Advanced' options - in this way, they inadvertently install PUPs such as Computer Chair.

Installation of bogus applications can be avoided by taking two simple steps. Firstly, each step of the free software download procedure should be closely observed, and all offers to install additional programs, declined. Secondly, all downloaded programs should be installed using the 'Custom' or 'Advanced' options, rather than 'Quick' or 'Typical' - this will reveal any concealed software listed for installation and allow you to opt-out.
