"Install Core" 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.

If you have an installer and are unsure of its origin, you can check to see if the Digital Signature property on the installer file matches the organization who created the software.

Software installed via Install Core installers can often be found for download on the developer's own site free of bundled third party software.
