Today we would like to share with you the tricks to skip bundled adware in your Windows 10 device. We all use the internet on our computer or laptop to browse a site. But sometimes we can see that the browser is constantly redirecting to unwanted sites or advertisements.
If this happens continuously, maybe there is some malware in your device. These come to your device at the time of installing the application from some non-verified sites. Microsoft Store is the perfect place to get an app installed on your device.
But sometimes people prefer to download portable software directly from the developers’ website. These are the websites where you get adware, and you install them on your device unknowingly. So, let’s start.
Why Pop-up Ads Come in Windows 10?
Before we go further, you should know some more details regarding pop-up ads and bundled adware. Many users ask us why they see pop-up ads on their devices. The answer is simple. You see those ads because there is adware on your device.
However, the website you are using can also redirect you to those ads. These ads overlay the actual content of the page. And when you click on the link, you will reach another site which may not secure. That is the reason why adware is a real threat to your device.
By definition, bundle adware is special adware software where different types of adware are kept in compressed form. When you download and install software from an untrusted website, this bundle adware attacks your device and spread in your system.
How to Automatically Skip Bundled Adware
Here we are going to introduce you to amazing software that helps you fight against bundle adware threats. Unchecky is free software available for Windows 10 to block adware. But before we start, let us remind you of something.
This software, Unchecky, was last updated in 2018. Still, the program works perfectly, and it is the best software for this purpose. So, let’s go to explore the process to fight against bundled adware with Uncheky.
Step 1: Firstly, you have to download Unchecky on your Windows 10 device. Then install the program. After you complete the process of installation, you can see the icon of Unchecky on your system tray.
Step 2: Now, Unchecky is running in the background. Hence, you have nothing to do now; it will provide security to your device.
However, you can change notification and update preferences. Just double-click on it, and you will get the option to change the notification and update preference.
Step 3: You can now test Unchecky to assure its working capacity. To test this, you have to install software that is filled with junkware. We have chosen uTorrent, which is a popular torrent client.
Here, Unchecky has automatically unchecked the installation of additional installation. That’s how it is going to prevent the installation of bundled adware attached to the software.
Step 4: At next, let’s test it once again. Now we are going to install another popular device tool named IObit Driver Booster. It is an excellent and fast driver fixer tool that keeps system drivers up-to-date. And also it enhances the overall system performance. However, with its efficiency, it comes with a decent amount of adware. Also here you can see that Unchecky automatically unselects the bundled adware during installation.
Somehow, if you accidentally click on “Install” for the adware, you will get another chance to prevent it. In that case, Unchecky gives you a prompt to re-confirm your selection. Here you can select the “No” option to stop the process of installation of adware.
So, this is the way to automatically skip the installation of bundled adware and all types of bloatware on Windows 10. However, you should install software from Microsoft Store only to avoid adware.
