But usually, they come as optional items that, unless you deselect them, will set up automatically alongside. And the use of Default settings during freeware installation fundamentally gives them the required consent for setup. You should opt for Advanced or Custom mode so as to inspect for adjoined items. If anything undesirable is adjoined to freeware, you can prevent installation by unchecking those items.
