Advantages of different removal methods


How to protect the computer?

To prevent these issues, you have to know for sure how Traffic Media got into your computer. This occurs through three main methods:

  • Infection through an untrusted web-page. When you are on a website, you are shown a banner with a suggestion to install miraculous programs that can seriously support you in some things. These programs have the limited list of advantages: providing the information about best deals on the Internet, the fulfillment of certain tasks in the social networks, the enhancement of Web surfing, acting download of all drivers and updates for your gear, showing the newest unpaid media-content such as movies, music and games. If on some website you find an offer to install the software with any of these features - it is absolutely malicious, and the website itself is untrusted.
  • Download in bundles with reliable programs. Practically each unpaid program suggests you to install something besides the needed tool. You download the software, and then you see the window with the proposal of the installation of the browser, the additional extension for it, antivirus, miraculous media player, and God knows what else. You do not even need to decide anything because the installation has already been verified, and in some cases, it will be really hard to abort the unwanted installations.
  • The direct download by user. Clever written specification of the software and its magnificent (and nonexistent) functions misinforms the user, and he downloads adware.

The e-mails are used very often, to distribute viruses but it is rarely used by hijackers. If you see this paragraph, we think, that Traffic Media is already deleted. The good anti-viruses know how to locate malware, but if you prefer the deletion in manual mode - you should know all red flags of virus.

  • Slow launch of Windows. The programs that run at startup are, very often, the cause of tardy boot. Inspect the taskbar, and uninstall the suspicious tools from Control Panel.
  • Appearance of advertisement in all tabs. If the quantity of hype has grown up noticeably - this is, most likely, the undesired software.
  • Critical faults when using tools, shutdown or reboot of a computer without your permit.
  • The emergence of the bizarre programs on the computer. If the software shows up in the system without your consent - it's, most likely, malicious.

If you notice one of these symptoms in your system - you need to perform an overall scan with use of anti-virus, or manually remove all the useless and malicious tools from your PC. Don't trust in everything you see on the Internet, track the state of your PC, and it will anytime be clean and effective.
