Such P2P sites are used to promote third-party installers that usually pack a couple of malware infections and potentially unwanted programs alongside legitimate free software as bait. When you install such a bundle, always go for the custom or advanced option and do not choose quick installation because this is how you may miss what additional tools or browser setting changes could be added by default. We recommend that you always use official and reputable pages to download software and updates. But you can also let such threats onto your system by clicking on the wrong third-party ads on suspicious pages (online betting, free gaming, and dating) or when your PC is infected with adware. It is essential that you make sure that there is not one single infection or potentially harmful program on board before you go online.
