How does SECOH-QAD.exe affect my system?

You are possibly wondering how you unintentionally set up the advertising-supported application. The method that adware implements is known as the bundling method, which essentially means that an advertising-supported application is attached to some kind of software that you set up. Keep two things in mind when installing free applications. First, if some kind of item is attached to the application and you use Default settings when installing it, you will unknowingly install that offer as well. Second, you need to opt for Advanced (Custom) settings in order to be able to uncheck all added offers. And if it’s already installed, we encourage you to delete SECOH-QAD.exe as quickly as possible.

You may think that an ad-supported software is altogether harmless, as all it really does is expose you to ads, but that is not always the case.
