The user either does not spot a thing and clicks through everything to get an unwanted tool or realizes a nasty fact that he can only install the entire package of useless tools. In most cases, both variants lead to adware infection. The simplest way to avoid this is to familiarize yourself with all information that is written in the menus popping up during the installation of any free utility. If The Good Caster is within the OS – there is nothing preventing it from messing with your browser. Its first action is to display pop-ups everywhere, and the multitude of them is clicked because a user struggles to close them.
