Google is your best help.
For my browsers, I use AdBlock Plus.
For new program installs.
A lot of programs, now give you the choice to install toolbars & other during the install. Either uncheck these items during install, or use Custom install. No more click, click during an install, you have to read after each click.
WARNING: CNET Download.com downloads now come bundled with opt-out crapware and toolbars ( Same applies to Softonic & Brothersoft )
Use Unchecky to help prevent these third party installs. Nothing is perfect, the badies are always ahead of the goodies, so be vigilant.
A reliable application that aims to protect your computer against third-party components often offered during software installations.
