I have found a log-in in the logins and passwords list which I do not recognise - from a dating site which I haven't used! (How) Is this possible? I had recently been receiving a huge amount of spam but once I deleted the log-in the spam dissappeared. Does anyone have any thoughts?

Does anyone else use your system?


It’s very sad, but many software downloaders/ installers will trick you into installing not only their program, but other programs as well.

You have heard of the fine print in shady contracts, right? Well, some installers you need to look at the itsy bitsy teeny weeny fine print.

You are thinking you are giving the installer permission to install the program you want by using the recommended option. But if you use the Manual Option Instead, you discover all kinds of stuff that you do not even know what it is or what it does.

From now on, everyone needs to Use The Manual Option to put a stop to this.

Note that these programs can also change browser/computer settings.
