Preventing this from occurring is doable if you find Custom or Advanced settings inside the setup. There you can find a deselect menu.

If you click advertisements, like banners or pop-unders then the adware can appear in your browser applications. These ways of distribution are the most common for this adware. Browsers which could be affected are the following: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Edge, Internet Explorer and Safari.
