"We have seen a concerning trend that is about to spiral out of control: Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) are further on the rise. What’s even more concerning is how they are spreading. After big vendors as Oracle (Java) and Microsoft (Bing and Skype) started bundling, now antivirus vendors have joined the game. We did research on some of the most popular PUP practices among the freeware antivirus vendors, and the results are quite disturbing.

PUPs want to get on your computer to make money off of you"

The article is written by Emisoft, a producer of a antivirus/antimalware suit. Through this article they want to look better than competitors. Some clean free antivirus solutions were omitted from this article because then it would not drive people to Emisoft.
