How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such sort of adware, you should know precisely how Ads.gold got into your computer. This might occur via three main ways:

  • Infection through a malicious web-page. There are websites, which spread the dangerous programs and aren't even hiding it. Such tools have the bounded list of advantages: giving the info about beneficial offers on the Net, the implementation of definite actions in Twitter, self download of each update or driver for your hardware, the improvement of Internet surfing, search for the newest toll-free content such as music, games and movies. Each such option is already integrated into the browsers, or present in the operating system tools list, which means - these software are just worthless, and the web-page that spreads them is, apparently, harmful.
  • Viruses may be bundled with reliable software. If you often use the unpaid programs, you are familiar with this. You download the tool, and then you see the window with the suggestion of the installation of the special software, browser, the additional add-on for it, miraculous file manager, and, maybe, some another strange, but highly "efficient" tools. The installation is already confirmed, and once you click "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll get 3-4 trashy programs, besides the one that you would like to have.
  • In some cases user installs adware voluntarily. It is very possible, because when the customers read an attractive description of the tool, they decide that it is highly effective.

The infection via viral e-mail attachment is also very effective, but this technique is used mostly by malware and ransomware, and not by advertisement software. If you read this paragraph, we suppose, that adware is gone for good. The good antiviruses understand to locate malware, but if you prefer the hand deletion - you need to know all symptoms of virus.

  • Slow launch of OS. The tools that launch at startup are, most often, the reason of slow boot. On the taskbar you will see all currently launched programs, and choose the ones that are helpful and which are not.
  • Pop-ups are everywhere. If the amount of advertisement has grown up notably - it is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • The dependable software functions unstable and slow, PC restarts and turns off by itself.
  • The emergence of the suspicious tools in the system. If the software appears in your system without your resolution - it is, most likely, dangerous.

If you notice one of these red flags in your system - you have to perform a full scan through anti-viral software, or manually get rid of all the unwanted and malicious software from your computer. Don't believe in everything you see on the Web, watch at the status of your PC, and it will always be clean and efficient.
