Naturally, victims rarely search for adware directly. Bundled infection is the most preferred method, and we will explain what it is below. In rare cases victim isn't liable for getting into the OS, as it was installed by a Trojan. But to carry that out, Trojan had to be called onto the device too.

How gets into the system

Bundled installation is the swiftest, most effective and plainest technique to spread a program over the Internet. Scammers simply take a popular gratis utility, add some malicious utilities to it, and wrap it all in a single bundle. While you are installing a popular tool, you will get a suggestion to install the malicious ones too. At times you can call it off, on occasion you can’t, but most times users simply don’t notice it as they are clicking their way to install everything without inspecting the words that are written in all those irritating windows. Now you see why we have told you that you’ve invited into your system.

How to protect the system

We know the manners to guard the browser from adware, malware, Trojans and most of the perilous utilities. It's not a joke. The manner includes several habits and patterns you have to follow, but it's not that hard and you will get accustomed to it. Here’s our advice:

  • And, naturally,, you have to inspect all information that arises through the installation of any toll-free utility. We'd rephrase it: it's not necessary to the full License Agreement, but you should ignore proposals to install anything except the utility that you've wanted. If those proposals are displayed – you should watch out.
  • You'd better remember that lots of sites are not good. Hackers want to assure you that your workstation is infested, by locking your browser and making you accept a download of the tool they wish you to install. If it happened to you – simply close its process via Process Manager, and you’ll be fine. No site is able to scan the machine for malware within a moment and tell if it’s contaminated or not.
  • Our first and foremost tip to protect the computer will be to not to use pirated programs. If a program is gratis and you know for sure that it’s reliable – just find it on the reliable sources, and you won’t get any problems. In case of a cracked utility – there are no good sites – only torrents. You won’t download decent defense on those sites, and every file could contain a virus.
  • You should forget about clicking. That’s the wont you have to build: you look for something – get it from Google. If a banner shows up on some page or in your system, you'd better abstain from clicking on it. If you receive the suggestion to download a program and states that it’s useful – google its name. To discover in a timely manner - use the word "delete".
