If you do not want your homepage to change into Mediafiretrend.com, you have to be attentive when you download freeware applications from file-sharing pages. It might seem like not much of a deal, but third-party sources often host unreliable installers that carry more than one program within. You might be focused on this one application you had the intention to install, while the installer will set up a number of other programs that come with it.
