Freeware bundles is the likely way you infected your PC. It is doubtful that users would install them willingly, so freeware bundles is the most likely method. The reason this method is successful is because people behave negligently when they install software, missing all hints that something could be attached. In order t0 stop their installation, they must be unmarked, but because they are hiding, you might not notice them by rushing the process. By choosing to use Default mode, you might be permitting all types of unfamiliar offers to install, so it would be best if you do not use them.
