How to protect the computer?

There is one simple thing that you should understand about any malware: how not to let it enter your PC. Adware use plenty of ways, but we'll divide them on three main groups:

  • Infection through a viral web-page. When you're on a web-page, you see a pop-up window with an invitation to download some programs that might greatly support you in something. The features of these software are ordinary, they are: 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, the fulfillment of certain tasks in the social networks, acting download of all drivers and updates for your gear. If on the website you receive an offer to download the software with similar functions - it is absolutely dangerous, and the site itself is unsafe.
  • Adware may be attached to good tools. Almost every free software suggests you to get something aside from the tool that you wish. You download the tool, and then you see the window with the proposal of the installation of the marvelous media player, special tool, browser, the new add-on for it, and, maybe, a pair of another unknown, but extremely "efficient" tools. You do not even need to decide anything because the installation has already been confirmed, and in most cases, it will be really hard to cancel the installation of undesired programs.
  • The straight installation by user. Carefully composed description of the product and its marvelous (and nonexistent) advantages deludes the user, and he installs malware.

The infection via viral e-mail attachment is also highly effective, but this way is used most of the cases by ransomware and viruses, and not by adware. If you read these words, we think, that Tabcontent is gone for good. The reputable anti-viral software know how to locate a virus, but if you prefer the removal in manual mode - you must know all signs of virus.

  • Slow launch of OS. The programs that turn on at startup are, very often, the cause of long boot. Check the taskbar, and remove the unwanted programs from Control Panel.
  • Appearance of ads in the browser. If the quantity of hype increased dramatically - it is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • The dependable software became unstable and slow, computer reboots and turns off by itself.
  • You see a lot of software that you haven't installed. If the tool emerges in your system without your permission - it's, most likely, undesired.

If you see one of these symptoms in your system - you should perform an overall scan with assistance of anti-virus, or manually remove all the undesired and malicious programs from your PC. Be cautious on the Internet, watch at the status of your machine, and it will anytime be clean and functional.
