How to protect the computer?

There is one simple thing that you should know about any adware: how not to let it crawl inside the computer. Viruses use plenty of ways, but we'll assort them on three basic groups:

  • Download from a malicious site. There are websites, which spread the hijackers and they don't even try to hide it. The advantages of such software are usual, they are: the performance of specific tasks in Facebook, the acceleration of Net browsing, search for most profitable discounts on the Web, automated installation of all updates and drivers for your devices, providing the latest free media-content such as music, movies and games. If on some website you find an offer to download the tool with similar functions - it is really harmful, and the website itself is untrusted.
  • Hijackers might be attached to other tools. Nearly each unpaid software suggests you to get something aside from the tool that you need. You download the software, and then you see the window with the confirmation on the installation of the anti-virus, marvelous media player, browser, the new add-on for it, and God knows what else. You do not even need to make a decision because the installation has already been verified, and in most cases, it is very complicated to abort the undesired installations.
  • Sometimes user downloads hijackers by his own will. Carefully composed description of the program and its magnificent (and nonexistent) features misguides the user, and he sets up adware.

The e-mails are also often used, to spread malware but it is rarely used by adware. We believe that by the time you're reading these words, GamesZing will be already deleted from the PC. The reputable AV-tools know how to detect malware, but if you prefer the deletion in manual mode - you should know all red flags of infection.

  • Slow loading of Windows. The processes that turn on at startup are, very often, the cause of long boot. At the taskbar you will see all currently launched programs, and choose which are useful and which aren't.
  • Ads are everywhere. If the quantity of advertising has grown up dramatically - that is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • Critical errors while using programs, reboot or shutdown of a machine without your permission.
  • You notice a lot of software that you've never seen before. If the software shows up in the system without your resolution - it's, nothing else than the virus.

Each of these red flags informs about the virus threat, and if you react in time - you will prevent the damage. Be careful on the Net, look for the symptoms of infection on the computer, and it will be ready for anything.
