Where does Go.next-search.net come from?

It is possible to avoid this, if you choose the Advanced or Custom mode that will enable you to deselect the components that you do not find necessary. If you do, you will be able to install the software of your choice without having to deal with browser hijackers or other useless programs.

Every time you click on one of the presented ads or links, the developers of the application make profit. The problem with the advertisements is that they can be fake. The ads may lead you to corrupted webpages. You could be tricked into downloading malicious programs, wasting your money, exposing your personal details to unreliable parties and so on.
