Default mode will hide the items, and by picking them, you could be risking installing all types of unnecessary infections. Choose Advanced (Custom) mode when you are installing something, and extra offers will become visible. Unmarking all the items would be the best choice, unless you want to have to deal with unwanted installations. You ought to only continue with the program installation after you uncheck everything.

Redirect viruses intend to redirect to particular websites so that owners could make income. When there are more people to engage with ads, owners can make more revenue. Those web pages are usually rather obvious because they evidently have nothing to do with search query. In certain cases, they could seem legitimate, so for example if you were to inquire about for something vague, like ‘anti-malware’ or ‘computer’, results with dubious hyperlinks might come up but you wouldn’t know in the beginning. It needs to be said that browser redirects can also redirect to infected sites, which may result in you obtaining a severe infection.
