Unwanted web-pages are very easy to identify: they appear on the last positions in search, and they intrusively offer to purchase something. Except that, pay attention to the notifications that your browser and antivirus display. The bundled installation technique is a little bit different: you must be aware of it only when you install some programs. This method functions because of user's credulity and the harmful habit to press OK without reading. You install some program and in one of the windows during installation appears an offer to install some additional programs.
