As its own name suggests, PUP.AdBundle is Possibly Unwanted Program that may have entered your computer bundled with freeware, shareware and other similar programs downloaded from the Internet. PUP.AdBundle's advertisements are created and displayed by a related adware program. Clicking on any of the advertisements displayed by PUP.AdBundle-related adware, the PC user may be redirected to unsafe websites that promote PUPs and other kinds of unsafe programs. PC users should always mark the 'Custom' or 'Advanced' installation box when installing freeware to their machines. This simple measure may prevent a bundled installation of unsafe programs. To stop the unwanted activities executed by the adware behind PUP.AdBundle, you may need to use an anti-malware product.
