Free software is used to aid in questionable browser add-on distribution. You could have picked to install it as well because it’s available on browser stores or official websites. But most often, they are attached as optional offers that install automatically together with the freeware, unless you prevent them. They don’t even require your explicit consent to set up as when you stick to Default mode, you essentially permit them to set up. Those settings don’t inform you if something has been attached to free software, so you ought to use Advanced (Custom) mode instead. If you see something attached, deselect it/them.
