In fact, the task of hackers is to convince the user that their adware performs something that is impossible to monitor.

All advertising software's actions are aimed at making you click on the ads.

Advertisers don't care how the clicks were done, and swindlers will get their money both for the normal referral and for the undesired one.

Advertisement tools are being spread in different ways: with help of infected web-pages on which the viral download may begin after any click, and using the bundled installation. The "website" way can be lightly avoided: you should only visit websites that are fully safe, and are on the first pages in browser. Except that, your browser and anti-viral tool will display the warning, if the web-site is not trustworthy. The bundled installation method isn't related to websites: you have to be aware of it only when you are installing some software. Bundled installation means that adware is added to installation files of free tools. The installer is modified to suggest you to install extra tools except the needed one. All fields are pre-checked, and if you click “OK” – you will install at 2-3 tools instead of one. You need to understand that: if Consertist.com had penetrated your machine via bundled installation, there probably are some more adware or malware. According to this, if you see the option between “safe install” and “partial installation” – pick the second variant. Doing this you will be able to pick which software you are going to install and which you don’t.
