- Your PC is suffering from a number of critical issues (possibly with the registry) that need to be resolved ASAP. You can download a free utility that will do that for you.
- An important pre-installed program (like Flash, Java) has become outdated and has become a security threat. You are offered to immediately download and installed the update.
- You see an empty pop-up or maybe even a whole page. An error informs you that you have to install a missing plug-in, codec or maybe a video player before the content of the page can be shown.

Program bundles – a hidden backdoor
Some program installers offer you the option to install a number of other programs beside the main thing – as free extras. This is not necessary a bad thing – if those programs are not Adware of course. Unfortunately, especially when we are talking about installers of free programs, Adware may be exactly the thing that is lurking inside. For this reason forget about default installations and always go advanced. If everything is OK then you just have to click NEXT a few more times, if it’s not then you can easily deny installation to all unwanted extras.
