There are two primary ways of advertising tool spread: the placing on the hacked websites and installation in bundles with free programs. Malicious web-sites are really easy to know: they appear on the last pages in search, and they are overwhelmed with intrusive advertisement and strange links. Besides that, your browser and antivirus program will display you warning, if the web-site is suspicious. To shield your computer from the penetration via the second technique, you should attentively observe the installation of any software. This technique is so efficient because of user's trustfulness and the pernicious habit to press OK without reading. User installs some program and the pop-up window during installation emerges an offer to install some extra programs. In some variants you just can't uncheck the fields, and in some - there's no sign of extraneous programs. Most likely, all software except the wanted one will be meaningless or even harmful. According to this, when you see the option between “recommended installation” and “install for expert users” – choose the second variant. Doing this you will be able to choose which tool you wish to install and which you do not.
