Actually, the information about additional programs is placed somewhere for compliance with legal requirements. You need just take a careful look on setup wizards and download client to find this information, or use tools that can block legitimate potentially unwanted programs (PUP) like Feven and give you a warning.

Be careful while installing free programs, and it will save you a lot of time needed for removing unwanted adware. Use SpyHunter for real time protection, reliable virus detection, and clean removal.
