How does it behave

An ad-supported software may normally be encountered together with free programs as a bundled offer. If some type of item travels together with the freeware, you should uncheck it, and Default settings won’t allow you to do that. Instead, choose Advanced or Custom settings. If any offers become visible in Advanced, just uncheck them, and they will not be permitted to install.
