Advantages of different removal methods


How to protect the computer?

There is one simple thing that you should know about any adware: how not to let it sneak onto the PC. This happens via three basic manners:

  • Download from a suspicious site. Some websites propagate the hijackers without any precautions. The advantages of such programs are common, they are: the fulfillment of certain tasks in the social networks, the enhancement of Web surfing, showing the newest unpaid media-content such as movies, music and games, providing the information about best deals on the Internet, acting download of all drivers and updates for your gear. All of these functions are already built into the browsers, or is in the list of Windows services, which means - such programs are completely useless, and the web-site that disseminates them is, apparently, malicious.
  • Download in the package with other tools. If you have ever used the toll-free software, you are familiar with this. You install the software, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the proposal of the installation of the browser, the new add-on for it, anti-viral program, super-useful file manager, and, maybe, some another strange, but very "efficient" tools. There's no need to make a decision because the all fields are already checked, and in most cases, it is very difficult to decline the installation of suspicious software.
  • In some cases user downloads dangerous software voluntarily. It is highly possible, because when the users see an alluring description of software, they decide that it is highly useful.

The e-mails are also often used, to spread viruses but the advertising programs almost don't use it. We believe that by the time you're reading these words, HotShoppy will be totally removed from your workstation. The reputable anti-viruses understand to detect a virus, but if you prefer the hand disposal - you should know all red flags of infection.

  • Windows boots extremely slowly. The processes that run at startup are, in most cases, the reason of long boot. On the taskbar you can see all currently launched tools, and decide which are good and which aren't.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the quantity of advertisement increased dramatically - it is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • The reputable programs became unstable and slow, PC restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • The appearance of the suspicious software in your system. If the program emerges in your system without your permit - it is, most likely, undesired.

Every of these symptoms indicates the malware threat, and if you react in time - you will avoid the harm. Be watchful on the Net, watch at the state of your machine, and it will always be fast and functional.
