How UniDeals infected your PC

UniDeals in my case was installed along with file downloader from datafilehost.com. Such low quality websites host files and provide downloads, but they wrap every file in “downloader” that will install adware or search hijackers on your PC along with desired file. There is huge number of such websites, and you need to be very careful when somebody offers you to download something from them. Also, some big software portals like Download.com can do this. Classic antiviruses do not catch such adware, you need to look carefully when installing something from the web or use protection programs like SpyHunter 5, AdGuard, Malwarebytes AntiMalware.
