Users should know how malware is usually spread in order to be able to prevent it from entering their computers. Browser hijackers like might be distributed through bundled malicious installers. On top of that, it has been observed that users often allow them to enter their computers by clicking on pop-up advertisements they notice on their screens. These pop-ups are usually shown by malicious software, e.g. adware hiding on the system, so if clicking on such a pop-up is the reason you have the browser hijacker too, it means that you will have to take care of undesirable programs you have on your computer as well.
