Adware may be installed on your computer if you’re redirected to regularly

Redirects to sites like could happen for a variety of reasons. But the most likely reason is you browsing dubious websites. Certain websites expose users to questionable ads, which is why they are often considered to be high-risk. A redirect may occur, for instance, if you click anywhere on a website that has pirated or pornographic content. A solid adblocker program should be able to easily handle these redirects, however. It would also block other annoying ads, including pop-ups.

If you frequently find yourself getting redirected to and similar websites even when browsing safe and ad-free websites, your computer may be infected with adware. Adware is a pretty obvious infection because of the neverending ads. Adware and browser hijackers often come added to free software as extra offers. Software bundling is what this method is known as. Due to the fact that it essentially permits infections like adware to install without explicit permission, this installation method is somewhat controversial. The way it works is those additional offers are allowed to install automatically alongside the program without needing any explicit authorization. It’s not uncommon for anti-virus software to flag programs that use software bundling to install as potential threats.

These undesirable installations can easily be prevented if programs are installed correctly. That mainly means choosing Advanced (Custom) settings instead of Default (Basic) settings. All extra offers will be concealed and allowed to install alongside if you select Default, as recommended by the installation window. However, if you opt for Advanced, the settings will make all offers visible and give you the option to deselect everything you do not want. All you need to do is uncheck the boxes of those offers.

At first glance, the additional offers may seem useful, but allowing them to install would be a mistake. You will just fill your computer with useless programs if you allow these unauthorized installations. For instance, once fully installed, adware infections can be somewhat difficult to deal with. It is much easier to uncheck a few boxes during program installation than it is to attempt to remove a persistent infection like adware.
