What do I have to know about these infections

You likely ran into the redirect virus accidentally, when you were installing freeware. You were probably just inattentive, and you did not intentionally install it. This method is effective because users are inattentive, don’t read the information provided and are generally careless during application installation. Pay attention to the process because offers tend to hide, and by not seeing them, you are permitting them to install. Opt out of using Default settings because they don’t allow you to uncheck anything. Make sure you always choose Advanced (Custom) settings, as the offers will be visible only there. Unless you wish to deal with unwanted installations, deselect every offer that appears. Just uncheck the boxes, and you can then continue installing the freeware.

Be cautious of advertisement links inserted among the results since you might be redirected. Those reroutes could be happening because of money reasons, as owners of those pages earn more money when traffic is boosted. After all, more traffic means more users on ads, meaning more revenue. Those websites are generally quite obvious because they obviously will be irrelevant to search query. In certain cases, they could appear to be legitimate, so for example if you were to search for something quite ambiguous, like ‘anti-virus’ or ‘computer’, results leading to doubtful sites might come up but you would not notice in the beginning. When you are rerouted, you could end up with an infection as those websites might be sheltering malware. The redirect virus will also follow your Internet browsing, collecting various data about your browsing activity.
