One of the most popular infiltration methods is freeware bundling. Crooks often attach an infection to a bundle and if you are not careful enough you install in on your PC.

This is what infections pray for. Other methods a hijacker can use to slither it are spam email messages and malicious attachments, corrupted pages/links/torrents, malicious third-party pop-ups, etc. There are many ways for infections to trick you but without your haste and distraction, it cannot succeed.
