The Chromstera unwanted program is also often advertised as a better and faster browser, which is how it tricks users into installing it.

How did Chromstera potentially unwanted program install?

In most cases, users are tricked into installing infections like adware, browser hijackers, and potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). Whether it’s using the software-building method or deceptive advertising, developers of these infections use various tactics to deceive users into making these unwanted installations.

It’s very common for browser hijackers and PUPs to be added to free programs as additional offers in what’s known as the software bundling method. When the offers are added to freeware, they are permitted to install alongside without requiring explicit permission from users. Users are not even aware of these installations in many cases because the offers are hidden in settings users don’t normally use. The offers are technically optional but they need to be manually deselected to stop them from installing. Because they are hidden, most users do not deselect the offers. This makes software bundling quite a controversial installation method.

If you want to avoid these unwanted installations, pay attention when installing free programs. When given the option during installation, choose Advanced (Custom) settings instead of Default. The installation window will recommend using Default settings but if you do that, all added offers will be installed automatically. However, Advanced settings will make all offers visible and give you the option to deselect what you do not want. We always recommend deselecting all offers because no legitimate program will use this method to install. Many anti-virus programs also detect programs that use software bundling as potential threats. Unless you want to fill your computer with junk programs that can be difficult to get rid of, we strongly recommend always deselecting all offers.

Browser hijackers and PUPs are also often disguised as seemingly useful browser extensions. These extensions are promoted on various free program websites. To avoid these unwanted installations, we recommend researching programs before downloading/installing them. A simple search with Google is usually enough. We also recommend avoiding questionable download websites. Instead, you should download programs from their official websites or other official sources.
