How do PUPs install

You might often see potentially unwanted applications presented as handy applications, so it’s possible the potentially unwanted application was set up by you knowingly. It is advised to do more thorough research in the future before installing applications if you want to avoid PUPs.

It’s also common for potentially unwanted applications to install through software bundling. The bundling technique is a frequently used method but you may not be aware of how it works. Unnecessary applications can install alongside free applications if they are added as extra items. The reason a lot of users end up not unchecking those items is because they just don’t see them as they’re concealed.

You will not be able to avoid installing those unwanted applications, unless you actually pay attention to how you install free applications. In order to see what has been added, you should opt for Advanced (Custom) options. Advanced settings will also permit you to unmark everything that has been adjoined.
