Needless to say, these shenanigans don`t go unnoticed by your machine. It also suffers. It stars to underperform and lag often. It also crashed and freezes occasionally.

How did the adware enter your PC? Do you often download free programs off of the web? If yes, do you opt for the Custom or for the Standard settings in the Setup Wizard? If your answer is the Standard, change your habits. Crooks often attach malware to other programs on the web. Then, when you install these programs, you install the malware as well. At least, if you go with the Standard options.
If you choose the Custom ones, you will be able to see all additionally attached apps to the bundle as well as remove it before pressing the “finish” button. Deselect all extras as they are usually malicious. If you truly needed them, you would have downloaded them yourself by now!
