How does Gdsmux Ads spread
Most adware, browser hijackers and potentially unwanted programs spread via free software. Gdsmux Ads spread the same way. When you install free software, you probably use Default settings during the installation process. That is where your mistake lays. A lot of free software have additional items added to them and if they go unnoticed, they will automatically install onto your computer. Default settings do not show those items. Advanced (Custom) settings do. If you use Advanced settings, you can see what is being installed along with the software and if necessary, you can prevent the installation. If you did accidentally install this PUP, you should delete Gdsmux Ads.
