If your homepage or search engine changes without your noticing and ad banners start appearing on websites, it might mean that adware has been installed on your computer. This can happen if you missed a check box while installing an application and accidentally agreed to install another application, or else granted permission to change your browser’s settings (homepage or default search engine). Such actions are common among malicious programs.

The Application Manager feature of Kaspersky Internet Security 2018 detects and blocks such changes.

To find and remove applications that have been secretly installed on your computer, run the analysis of installed applications.
