There are three major tracks unsolicited commercial applications can make its way on to your PC. Some freeware softwares are bundled with parasites which are installed at the same time. Sometimes websites (or pop-up ads) try to deceive you into clicking Yes by saying that the applications is required to watch the site or by opening never-ending defect windows if you click No or by saying that the digital certificate on the code means it's foolproof otherwise it can be pest. If Yes is clicked (or if IE security options are set bottom than normal so that it never even asks), the parasite is permitted to run and can do anything at all it likes on your PC, including setting up pest.
