PUPs just like Gamesopolis hijack devices when installed alongside other applications, as they usually spread via freeware and shareware. Hence, if you want to keep your PC spyware-free, you should download programs only from secure sources and install them correctly. If you think that Default or Standard settings for software installation is a good choice, you are entirely wrong. Typically, this configuration does not even notify the user about additional components added to the primary program, and they get installed silently. Of course, the user notices consequences later and starts looking for information about programs that he or she has never downloaded to the computer. You should stop PUPs before they enter your PC, and it is a very easy thing to do. When you download a piece of software from the Internet, check if it is not complemented with additional third-party applications.
