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.

Hello Mubs Anonymous,

As you probably already suspected : Adaware Secure Search is malware - it's a browser hijacker, that you of course want to get rid of.

Would you please do this :

Go to the Firefox menu (≡) => Options => Add-ons => Extensions and remove anything that looks unfamiliar or suspicious.

Do the same in Windows Control Panel.

Next step is to run malwarescans - further information can be found in this article :

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. They all work differently - what one program doesn't pick up, the other might.
