There are two principal methods of advertisement tool spread: the deployment on the infected web-sites and installation in bundles with good programs. The first technique might be lightly neutralized: you must only visit websites which are totally trustworthy, and are on the first pages in browser. Besides that, your browser and anti-viral tool will show the warning, if the website is unreliable. To guard yourself from the penetration through the bundled installation method, you should closely supervise the installation of all programs. Bundled installation means that adware is integrated into installers of useful tools. The installer is set to offer you to get extra programs in addition to the needed one. In some variants you just can't cancel the installation, and in some - you don't even realize that you're installing something wrong.

Remember about this each time you install something - and your machine will be noticeably cleaner.
