PUPs are distributed through bundled software
Potentially unwanted apps are most commonly distributed through deceptive ads that are designed to run certain scripts or by using software bundling. In the later method, packaging of one app is done with some regular software, such as freeware or shareware app. There is nothing wrong in this method. In fact, it is a legit way that is beneficial to both the developers as well as users. While the developers get the monetary benefit on pay-per-install scheme, the users get the way to preview the app without its actual download.
However, many malicious actors abuse this method to distribute unwanted applications that start malicious modifications on browser settings and to serve ads, redirect and monitor web session.

Go to Custom/Advanced option, instead of recommended/Quick mode, to take complete control over the installation and incoming apps. Also, try to use only official websites and direct links for any software downloading and not any other channels like p2p networks, free file hosting sites and third party downloaders or installers that are most commonly used to get monetized through bundling.
