Installing such software can be avoided by checking the Custom or Advanced setting in an installation setup if there is one.

Another way that leads you to witnessing redirects to undesirable sites from WonderlandAds(.)com is by clicking on different advertisements. They can be in the form of pop-ups, banners or hidden links inside pages and also may have malicious content that can install a toolbar and a browser extension.
