The "website" way can be easily avoided: you must visit only those sites which are considered secure, and are on the first positions in browser. Except that, the browser and anti-virus program will display you warning, if the web-site is unreliable. To defend yourself from the infection via the second technique, you should carefully supervise the installation of all programs. Installation in bundles means that Search.queryrouter.com is integrated into installation packages of useful tools. The installer is set to offer you to get extra programs instead of the one that you need.

According to this, if you see the option among “safe install” and “partial installation” – choose the second variant. Then you will be able to pick what tool you are going to install and which you don’t.
