How did I get infected with?

Most infections travel the Web in bundles. This is a convenient way for PC users to download a whole bunch of programs at once. It is also a convenient way for cyber criminals to spread malware online. Keep in mind that freeware bundling is a popular virus infiltration method at the moment. To prevent it, stay away from unverified websites. Don’t hesitate to deselect any potential intruder you may find in the bundle. Opt for the Custom/Advanced option in the Setup Wizard. This way you’ll be paying attention to all programs in the bundle one by one. A single moment of distraction online is about enough to get your machine infected so make no mistake. Take your time in the installation process. Also, check out the Terms and Conditions or End User License Agreement (EULA). The key to your safety is caution. Remember, it’s much more troublesome to delete a virus than to prevent virus installation. Other distribution methods are third-party commercials, corrupted emails/messages, unverified pages, etc. Watch out for malware and don’t be gullible online.

Why are these ads dangerous?
