Advantages of different removal methods


How to protect the computer?

To prevent penetration by such virus, you need to know for sure in which way xxwxx.dll got into the computer. This happens through three basic manners:

  • Download from an untrusted web-site. Some web-sites spread the unwanted software and aren't even hiding it. The functions of such software are common, they are: the improvement of Internet surfing, the implementation of definite actions in Twitter, giving the info about beneficial offers on the Net, self download of each update or driver for your hardware, search for the newest toll-free content such as music, games and movies. All of these features are already integrated into the browsers, or is in the Windows tools list, which means - these tools are absolutely needless, and the website that spreads them is, probably, harmful.
  • Download in the package with good software. If you have ever used the toll-free software, you are familiar with this. You download the software, and then you see the window with the proposal to install the miraculous media player, browser, the additional toolbar for it, antivirus, and, maybe, few different unknown, but extremely "efficient" tools. The installation is already confirmed, and if you press "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll earn 4-5 unknown tools, instead of useful one.
  • Sometimes user downloads viruses voluntarily. It is very possible, because when some people read an attractive description of software, they think that it is very useful.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute viruses but it is rarely used by hijackers. If you see these words, we suppose, that xxwxx.dll is already gone. If you choose the uninstall in manual mode, you should know how to realize that there is a virus on your workstation.

  • Slow launch of Operating System. The tools that run at startup are, most often, the reason of tardy boot. On the taskbar you can see all currently launched tools, and decide which are helpful and which are not.
  • Appearance of advertisement in on every site. If the numbers of ads has grown up noticeably - this is, most likely, the unwanted software.
  • The reputable tools became unstable and slow, PC reboots and turns off by itself.
  • You notice many installed tools that you haven't installed. If the tool emerges on the machine without your consent - it's, most likely, undesired.

If you see one of the mentioned above red flags on your PC - you should do a total scan through antivirus, or manually delete all the unwanted and dangerous tools from your PC. Be cautious on the Net, look for the symptoms of malware on the machine, and it will be ready for anything.
