How does it act

By picking Default mode, you might be allowing all types of unfamiliar items to install, so it would be best if you don’t use them. Instead, pick Advanced or Custom settings since they’ll not only allow you to see what has been attached but also give an opportunity to uncheck everything. Unless you wish to deal with unfamiliar installations, ensure you always deselect the offers. All you have to do is uncheck the items, and you can then continue installing the freeware.
