Most PC users want to know the way systweak.com gets onto a machine so that they can take precautions against it. However, it is very easy to get systweak.com pop ups due to the employ of BHO technique. Any access would lead to the ads. The only way to prevent from its loading is not to visit the sites that have it. But it is impossible to know all the sites holding it as systweak.com is expanding to a broader scope.
Besides, downloading and installing some third-party programs would also bring to systweak.com popping up scene.
