Advantages of different removal methods


How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such adware, you should know for sure how FVP got on the PC. This occurs through three basic techniques:

  • Infection through a malicious web-page. When you are on a website, you see a confirmation to install few programs that can seriously support you in some cases. The features of suchlike tools are ordinary, they are: automated installation of all updates and drivers for your devices, the performance of specific tasks in Facebook, search for most profitable discounts on the Web, the acceleration of Net browsing, providing the latest free media-content such as music, movies and games. If on the website you find a suggestion to download the software with similar functions - it is absolutely malicious, and the site itself is suspicious.
  • Download in bundles with reliable programs. Literally every free program suggests you to install something besides the needed tool. You install the program, and during the installation there is a window with the suggestion to install the browser, the additional add-on for it, AV-program, marvelous media player, and, maybe, a pair of another strange, but highly "efficient" tools. The checkboxes are already filled, and once you press "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll install 2-3 trashy tools, instead of one that you would like to install.
  • In some cases user installs hijackers by his own will. It is also possible, because when some users read an attractive specification of the tool, they decide that it is very useful.

The infection via viral e-mail attachment is also extremely efficient, but this method is used most of the cases by malware and ransomware, and not by adware. If you see these words, we think, that FVP is already removed. If you prefer the disposal in manual mode, you should know how to understand that your computer has malware.

  • Slow boot of Windows. Most of the adware, during the installation, tune themselves to run at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. Inspect the taskbar, and search for useless programs.
  • Appearance of advertising in on every page. If the quantity of advertisement increased dramatically - that is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • Critical faults while using programs, shutdown or restart of a laptop without the user's resolution.
  • The appearance of the strange software on your machine. If the program shows up in your system without your consent - it's, nothing else than the adware.

If you notice one of these red flags on your machine - you should make a total scan with help of AV-software, or manually remove all the undesired and malicious tools from your system. Don't trust in everything you see on the Internet, follow the state of your computer, and it will be ready for any work.
