Yesterday I didn’t knew nothing about Yify-movies.net adware. But late in evening my friend asked me to look at his PC. “My homepage was changed and I can not reset it” – he said. “OK, no problem, let’s see what you have.” – I ran his browser. The screen I saw was with Yify-movies.net search page on it.

Every one of you sometimes installs new software. But how do you do this usually? Of course you do it by the fastest way you can – by default. At first glance it is correct. No unneeded steps, no unwanted fields to choose. But this is general mistake!!! Now most of developers of installation packs include other software in it also. And often it is unwanted or even potentially dangerous software. One of examples is Yify-movies.net. It is an adware which will display ads whether you want them to or not.
How can you protect from installing Yify-movies.net and other adware? First of all, as you probably understand from the previous chapter, never install new software by default. Always pay attention on options. Check if some unwanted software or plug-in presented in installation. Cancel them. And main rule: spend one minute more at start, but save hours later!
