Adware could trigger redirects to sites like

Unexpected redirects to websites like could be brought on by a number of different reasons. However, the most likely cause is you visiting questionable websites. There are thousands of websites that subject users to various forms of advertising. For example, clicking anywhere on a website that has pirated or pornographic content can trigger a redirect. However, a good adblocker application should deal with these annoying redirects very easily. The adblocker application would also block other intrusive ads.

Your computer may be infected with adware if you frequently find yourself being redirected to and similar websites even when browsing safe and ad-free websites. Adware is a pretty obvious infection because of the never-ending flood of advertising. Infections like browser hijackers and adware are usually attached to free software as extra offers. This is known as software bundling. It’s a pretty controversial installation method because it essentially allows adware to install without explicit permission. The way it works is those extra offers are permitted to install alongside the program automatically without requiring explicit permission. This sneakiness is one of the reasons why anti-virus programs frequently flag programs that use software bundling to install as potential threats.

If you install programs correctly, you can easily stop these unwanted installations. Instead of using Default (Basic) settings, you should always install programs using Advanced (Custom) settings. If you choose Default, as suggested by the installation window, all additional offers will be hidden and permitted to install alongside. If you select Advanced settings, you can review all offers and uncheck them all. Every offer that has been added to the program you are installing should be deselected.

The extra offers may seem helpful at first, but it would be a mistake to let them install. By permitting these unwanted installations, you will just clog your computer with junk programs. Adware infections, for example, may be quite troublesome to deal with once fully installed. Unchecking a few boxes during program installation is considerably easier than trying to remove persistent infections like adware.
