Actually if you're not interested in any of the propositions - the click might still be done, to close an undesirable irritating ad. Any click is worth the money and depending on the type of advertising it can be worth up to 5 cents and for some sorts of ads even more.

We know two primary ways of advertisement tool spread: the deployment on the malicious web-sites and bundled installation with good software. The first method can be easily neutralized: you should visit only those web-pages which are totally reliable, and are on the first positions in browser. Except that, the browser and antivirus program will show the notification, if the web-site is suspicious. The bundled installation method is a little bit different: you should be aware of it only if you are installing some software. This technique is based on user's credulity and the harmful habit to press OK without reading. User installs some software and in one of the windows during installation emerges an offer to install some extra programs. All boxes are already checked, and if you click “OK” – you will install at 2-3 programs instead of one. Naturally, all programs except the desired one will be meaningless or even perilous. So, if you see the option between “safe installation” and “partial installation” – pick the second variant. Keep this in mind every time you install something - and your system will be much cleaner.
