This happens especially when you’re installing a free applications. The program installer tricks you into accepting the install of third-party apps, which you do not really want. Moreover, certain paid programs can also install additional applications that you do not want! Therefore, always download free programs and paid applications from reputable download websites. Use ONLY custom or manual install option and never blindly click Next button.

We suggest that you keep AdGuard (to help you stop unwanted advertisements and undesired malicious web pages) and Zemana (to periodically scan your system for new ad supported softwares and other malware).
