The extras, more often than not, are parasites like the adware. You can prevent the unwanted apps from installing only under the advanced setup wizard. Make sure you know what you install. Read the terms and conditions before you agree to them. If you cannot spare enough time to read the whole document, scan it with an online EULA analyzer. Abort the installation if you detect anything suspicious.

The parasite monitors your browsing-related data. It knows your every online step. It’s just a matter of time before it discovers something sensitive. Even if it doesn’t, the collected data can still be used against you. The adware uses it as a base for ad-targeting, as well as sell access to it. Anyone willing to pay can use the adware and its resources. Numerous crooks do! They prepare irresistible adverts and force them on you.
