Why are the alerts popping up

Since no one would voluntarily install adware, it usually spreads through freeware. It is adjoined as an optional item which is not visible in Default settings, and if you don’t see it, you can’t unmark it, which is basically like providing the attached items the authorization to install. So as to be able to unmark the offers, pick Advanced or Custom mode. Advanced will make the offers visible, and all you need to do is uncheck the boxes.
