What is VuuPC, You're Always a Click Away!?

VuuPC uses the Install Core Click run software which is an installer which bundles legitimate applications with offers for additional third party applications that may be unwanted by the user. Such third party applications are typically installed onto users’ computers by default, but may include an option to ‘opt-out’ during or after the installation process. Typical bundled installs include DealPly as well as other potentially unwanted programs.

The software installer may also include a toolbar: "You understand the installation of the Software is concomitant with the installation of a toolbar in your browser. Such toolbar is an integral part of the Software, and you agree that Licensor may install and update any such toolbar in your browser. You understand that installation of the Software may be accompanied by a change in your browser home page, certain computer settings and the redirection of certain Internet search traffic."
