BitX can appear as a good tool which tells you about the best deals on the Web, adds remarkable options to all browsers, and does another things.

The malicious programs which show you pop-ups and interfere to use the Internet can be separated on two kinds: adware and hijackers. Adware affect the entire machine, placing banners and advertisements on each new tab in browser and even if the browser is closed. The second group acts exclusively in the browsers by substituting the results of your searches, providing fake output and redirecting you to malicious web-pages. All of these types of viruses are accompanied with particular lists of their functions, and the user believes that they are good. The state of your workstation is getting more deplorable in direct proportion to the time that the virus had lived on it.

When the pre-set search engine and the home-page are changed, user always sees the suspicious web-site in any browser and on every tab. Also, hijacker alters your browser options, related to ads. All well-known browsers nowadays have a function that allows to hide the banners, pop-ups, intrusive advertisement and other sorts of hype. BitX deactivates these features, and you begin to notice that the amount of ads in all browsers is extremely high. In addition, to that the amount of advertisement has increased observably, its quality became really low. If the virus works on the machine for a week, customer simply can't browse the Net because of hype, redirections and pop-ups in all browsers and sometimes even to launch the computer. Why is this done? All actions of virus are serving the one target: to force the user to make a click. Viral links often lead to third-class sites providing low-quality products, or services. Those web-sites are simply not visited by anybody aside from their developers, and the only way out for them is to drag customers to the web-site with the help of a trick. Any attempt to download something from such web-site will cause serious problems. As you already understood, BitX is harmless in itself, but it gives the opportunity to do things that will summon problems.

How to protect the computer?

To prevent suchlike problems, you need to know for sure in which way BitX got into the computer. Hijackers use lots of ways, but they all can be divided on three basic groups:

  • Infection through a dangerous web-page. When you're on a web-site, you see a confirmation to download brilliant tools that may greatly help you in some cases. The functions of suchlike tools are ordinary, they are: showing the newest unpaid media-content such as movies, music and games, the enhancement of Web surfing, 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 any website you find a suggestion to install the tool with such functions - it is really harmful, and the web-site itself is unsafe.
  • Download in the package with good software. If you have ever downloaded the free software, you know what we are talking about. You download the software, and in one of the windows you see the proposal of the installation of the anti-virus, brilliant file manager, browser, the additional toolbar for it, and, maybe, a pair of different strange, but highly "useful" tools. There's no need to make a decision because the installation has already been verified, and in some cases, it is very hard to decline the unwanted installations.
  • Sometimes user installs viruses voluntarily. Clever composed description of the tool and its brilliant (and nonexistent) advantages deceives the user, and he installs the hijacker.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread viruses but the hijackers almost don't use it. If you came to this part, we believe, that adware is gone for good. The good anti-viruses understand to recognize a virus, but if you prefer the deletion in manual mode - you need to know all symptoms of infection.

  • The system boots extremely slowly. Most of the viruses, during the installation, tune themselves to launch at startup, and it doesn't matter if this program is used once in 6 months - it will launch every day and take your time and CPU resources. Inspect the taskbar, and uninstall the undesired software from Control Panel.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the amount of advertisement has grown up dramatically - that is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • Critical failures while using software, restart or shutdown of a PC without the user's resolution.
  • You see lots of programs that you've never seen before. If the program emerges on the PC without your permission - it's, most likely, undesired.

Each of these symptoms informs about the malware threat, and if you react in time - you will avoid the harm. Don't believe in everything you see on the Web, look for the symptoms of virus on your machine, and it will always be clean and efficient.
