There are two main methods of advertisement tool spread: the placement on the malicious web-sites and bundled installation with free programs. The first way may be easily neutralized: you should visit only those web-sites that are totally dependable, and appear on the first pages in the search results. Also, remember to pay attention to the notifications that your browser and antivirus show. Second technique isn't related to websites: you must be aware of it only when you during the installation of programs. Bundled installation is simple: adware is integrated into installation packages of useful tools. You install some program and the pop-up window during installation appears a suggestion to install some additional programs. All boxes are already checked, and if user clicks "OK" he installs at least three tools instead of one. Most likely, all tools except the desired one will be useless or even hazardous. So, when you see the choice among “recommended installation” and “partial installation” – pick the second variant. Keep this in mind every time you install new software - and your computer will be much cleaner.
