How do PUPs install

It is possible you set up the potentially unwanted program yourself, believing it to be a beneficial program to have. If you do remember installing it, we recommend doing more research prior to software installation.

The PUP may have also installed through bundled software without your permission. This is a simple technique that’s often used for unnecessary program installation. Free software usually comes with potentially unwanted programs attached to it, and unless you uncheck them they will install together with the free application. If you’re questioning how the offers are able to sneak past users, it is because the offers are concealed during freeware installation.

In order to stop the unnecessary items from installing, you have to pay attention to how you install applications. In order to make all offers visible, pick Advanced (Custom) options. Not only will you be able to check if anything has been added, but you’ll also be given the option to deselect everything.
