How to protect the computer?

To prevent similar issues in the future, you have to know for sure in which way Stack Player got on your system. Viruses use lots of ways, but we'll divide them on three main groups:

  • Infection through an untrusted web-page. Some websites distribute the malware and they don't even try to hide it. The functions of suchlike software are ordinary, they are: the improvement of Internet surfing, self download of each update or driver for your hardware, search for the newest toll-free content such as music, games and movies, the implementation of definite actions in Twitter, giving the info about beneficial offers on the Net. If on the web-page you see an offer to download the tool with these features - it is completely dangerous, and the website itself is untrusted.
  • Hijackers may be bundled with reliable tools. Nearly each free program proposes you to install something besides the needed tool. You download the software, and then you see the window with the suggestion to get the super-useful media player, browser, the new extension for it, antivirus, and, maybe, few another unknown, but very "efficient" tools. You do not even need to make a decision because the all fields are already checked, and in most cases, it is very hard to abort the installation of suspicious programs.
  • Sometimes user installs adware voluntarily. It is very possible, because when the people read a tempting specification of software, they think that it is very efficient.

The infection via e-mail is also extremely efficient, but this technique is used most of the cases by malware and ransomware, and not by adware. We hope that by the time you're reading these words, Stack Player will be already uninstalled from the workstation. If you choose the manual uninstall, you should know how to realize that your workstation has malware.

  • Slow loading of Windows. The tools that turn on at startup are, in most cases, the cause of slow boot. On the taskbar you can see all currently working programs, and choose the ones that are good and which are not.
  • Appearance of ads in the browser. If the amount of ads increased noticeably - this is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • The reliable tools functions unstable and slow, computer restarts and turns off by itself.
  • The emergence of the unknown software in your system. If the program emerges on the computer without your permission - it's, nothing else than the malware.

Any of these red flags shows the malware threat, and the early reaction is a chance to prevent the damage. Be watchful on the Net, track the state of your machine, and it will anytime be clean and effective.
