What does it do

An advertising-supported software normally travels along with freeware, as a packaged offer. If the program has something attached to it, you need to uncheck it, and Default mode will not permit you to do that. Instead, opt for Advanced (Custom) mode. If any offers become visible in Advanced, just deselect them, and they will not be authorized to install. And while those items might not necessarily be harmful, if they didn’t disclose their installation properly, they should not be permitted to install. Pay close attention to what kind of applications are permitted to install onto the machine, and how you do it, unless you wish to constantly end up having to delete The System Is Badly Damaged POP-UP Scam or similar.

The false alerts intend to trick users into thinking that there is something wrong with their PC. You’re likely seeing a alleged malicious software, licensing or system issues, because scammers aren’t very creative when it comes to schemes, and they’re all essentially the same.
