It’s a known fact that browser hijackers come along with freeware bundles. They’re unnecessary and very invasive infections, so it’s dubious anyone would willingly installed them. The reason this method is successful is because users behave negligently when they install applications, which means they miss all clues that something could be added. The offers are hidden and if you rush, you have no chance of seeing them, and you not noticing them means you will be allowing them to install. Opt out of using Default mode as they do not permit you to deselect anything. Advanced or Custom settings, on the other hand, will make the offers visible. If you do not want to deal with constant unknown programs, deselect every offer that becomes visible. After all the offers have been deselected, you can continue the freeware installation.

Owners are able to earn more money when there is more traffic since more users will possibly engage with advertisements. If you click on those sites, you’ll quickly see that they have nothing to do with what you were searching for.
