There are two main ways of advertisement tool distribution: the placement on the infected websites and bundled installation with good software. The first method might be lightly avoided: you should only visit web-pages that are totally dependable, and are on the first positions in the search results. Besides that, your browser and antivirus program will display the notification, if the web-site is suspicious. To defend yourself from the penetration through the second method, you should closely observe the installation of any program. This technique is based on user's trustfulness and the harmful habit to press OK without reading. The installer is set to offer you to get extra tools instead of the one that you wanted. All fields are pre-checked, and if user clicks "OK" he installs at 4-5 programs instead of one. Remember: if Save Tabs had penetrated your PC through installation in bundles, there probably are other adware or viruses. So, when you see the option among “safe install” and “installation for experienced users” – choose the second option. Doing this you will be able to pick which program you want to install and which you don’t.
