You most probably acquired the ad-supported program along with a free application you have downloaded from an unofficial source of freeware. In such cases, adware applications get installed as additional because users tend to select the quicker installation option instead of the Custom/Advanced one, and skip the setup steps where they can decline the installation of unwanted programs. Another way to infect your system with adware is to click on random ads found on unfamiliar websites and to download software offered on these websites.

Why is it Dangerous? pop-up ads will most likely offer you to install some kind of software claiming that it will improve the performance of your system or it will provide you with useful services.
