There are two primary ways of adware spread: the deployment on the malicious websites and installation in bundles with good software. The "website" way may be easily neutralized: you must only visit websites that are completely dependable, and appear on the first pages in the search results. Besides that, your browser and anti-viral tool will show you notification, if the website is not trustworthy. Second technique is a little bit different: you must be aware of it only when you during the installation of programs. Bundled installation technique is based on people's trustfulness and the pernicious habit to click OK without reading. User installs some software and in one of the windows during the process appears an offer to get some additional programs. All fields are already checked, and by clicking "OK" he installs at 4-5 tools instead of one. Of course, all software except the wanted one will be trashy or even dangerous. So, if you see the option among “safe install” and “installation for practiced users” – pick the second variant. Keep this in mind each time you install some software - and your system will be noticeably cleaner.
