According to spyware and malware researchers, most of potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) are spread via bundling. This particular software distribution technique is simply a way to put several programs into one software package. For example, when you download a free program, it is most likely going to have several optional applications attached to it. Unfortunately, there is an only way to reveal whether your selected program is supplemented with additional freeware or not. You need to glance over the Terms of Use document and look for statements about a promotion of third-party software. Next, you have to set Advanced or Custom (whichever is available) installation mode. If the software promotes third-party software, you should receive a list of suggested applications. Deselect these suggestions to avoid installing unwanted freeware.
