Random redirects to websites like can be triggered for a variety of reasons. The most likely trigger, however, is the high-risk websites you visit. There are some websites that expose visitors to a wide range of dubious advertisements. For example, interacting with anything on websites that have pirated or pornographic content would trigger a redirect to some questionable website. However, these redirects could be effectively stopped by a competent adblocker program. The adblocker program would also block other intrusive ads and pop-ups.

If redirects to sites like happen on a regular basis, even when you visit safe sites, your computer may be infected with adware. Due to the constant barrage of advertisements, adware is a rather obvious infection. In what is known as software bundling, infections like adware and browser hijackers are added as extra offers to free software. Although the extra offers are optional, users must explicitly deselect them to stop their installations. In most cases, users choose Default settings while the offers are hidden in Advanced.

You may easily prevent such unwanted installations as long as you know what to do. Or to be more specific, if you use the correct settings when installing programs. You should always install programs using Advanced (Custom) options rather than Default settings like the installation window recommends. All additional offers will be concealed and authorized to install alongside if you choose Default settings. You can review all offers and uncheck them all if you choose Advanced settings. You should always deselect every offer that has been added to the program you are installing, even if it initially seems useful. Evidently, software bundling is a pretty controversial installation method. It’s not uncommon for programs that use software bundling to install to be detected by anti-virus programs as potential threats.

Offers may initially seem useful, but allowing them to install would be a decision you regret later on. Your computer will simply become filled with useless junk programs. Additionally, once fully installed, infections like adware can be very annoying and challenging to completely remove. When installing programs, it’s much easier to uncheck a few boxes than it is to get rid of infections like adware.
