Advertising software is being spread in different methods: through viral web-pages on which the unwanted download may start at each click, and via bundled installation. Malicious web-sites are very easy to recognize: they are on the last pages in search, and they are overwhelmed with intrusive ads and strange links. Except that, listen to the notifications of your anti-viral tool and browser. The bundled installation way isn't related to websites: you need to be aware of it only if you during the installation of programs. Bundled installation means that adware is integrated into installers of other programs. The installation tool is changed to suggest you to install extra tools instead of the one that you wanted. In some versions you just cannot decline the process, and in some - there's no sign of additional installation. Most likely, all programs except the wanted one will be trashy or even hazardous. According to this, when you see the choice among “safe installation” and “install for experienced users” – pick the second variant. Do this each time you install some program - and your computer will be noticeably cleaner.
