There are two principal methods of adware spread: the placement on the malicious web-sites and bundled installation with free software. Infected sites are very easy to identify: they appear on the last pages of search, and they intrusively suggest to download something. Except that, pay attention to the notifications that your browser and anti-virus show. To protect your PC from the penetration via the second method, you have to carefully supervise the installation of any software. Bundled installation technique is based on people's trustfulness and the bad habit to press OK without reading. User installs some program and in one of the windows during installation emerges an offer to get some extra software.
