How does it behave

You’re likely not aware of this but hijackers are commonly attached to freeware. We doubt that people would choose to install them knowingly, so free program bundles is the most feasible method. Because people rarely pay attention to how they install software, redirect viruses and similar threats may spread. The items are hidden and by rushing you loose all chance of seeing them, and you not noticing them means they’ll be allowed to install. By choosing to use Default settings, you could be permitting all kinds of unnecessary offers to install, so it would be best if you don’t use them.

Increased traffic helps sites since more users are likely to engage with the ads.
