These unwanted applications are installed without your knowledge and may spam you with ads or even change your default browser.

Enable the Unwanted App Installation Blocker in the Privacy section, to forget about this issue once and for all. The Unwanted App Installation Blocker will automatically clear the checkboxes for any additional applications suggested for installation to save you the trouble of unchecking them manually.
