But do you know how you got infected? One of the most popular tactics is bundled software. Infections often travel in such program packages and unless you check the entire bundle program by program you can never know what is in it. That’s why avoid unverified sources but, most importantly, be careful with the installation process. Take your time to read the Terms and Conditions/EULA and don’t skip steps. Opt for the Advanced settings instead of the Basic ones. Exactly they allow you to deselect any program from the bundle which looks suspicious and which you don’t want to download. If you rush it all and don’t pay attention, you are a twice as easy target.
Keep in mind that if you don’t allow the infection to enter it cannot enter. And the chances are you won`t. At least not on purpose. That’s why parasites, in general, pray for your carelessness and that’s it what they need the most. So, don’t provide it. Be smart. Be vigilant. Don’t let crooks take over.
