Yet another issue that may come as a result of having an undesired program on your PC is an unsolicited collection of both personal and non-personal information.
When it comes to the spread of the adware programs like the one that may be generating all those annoying redirects to Ngotwohatretw.info it is often realized via software bundles or freeware packages.
