Advantages of different removal methods


How to protect the computer?

To prevent penetration by such sort of dangerous programs, you should realize closely how CB Ad Rotator got onto the PC. Adware use plenty of ways, but we'll divide them on three main groups:

  • Download from a viral website. Some web-sites disseminate the hijackers and they don't even try to hide it. The advantages of such software are common, they are: the enhancement of Web surfing, the fulfillment of certain tasks in the social networks, acting download of all drivers and updates for your gear, providing the information about best deals on the Internet, showing the newest unpaid media-content such as movies, music and games. If on any web-page you find an offer to download the program with these features - it is absolutely harmful, and the website itself is unsafe.
  • Download in bundles with other tools. Literally each unpaid software suggests you to get something besides the needed tool. You download the software, and during the installation there is a window with the proposal to get the marvelous media player, anti-viral program, browser, the additional add-on for it, and, maybe, few different strange, but extremely "efficient" tools. The installation is already verified, and as soon as you click "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll install 3-4 trashy programs, besides the useful one.
  • Sometimes user downloads adware by his own will. Carefully written description of the software and its marvelous (and nonexistent) advantages misleads the customer, and he installs adware.

The e-mails are used very often, to distribute malware but the adware almost don't use it. If you came to these words, we suppose, that CB Ad Rotator is already deleted. If you prefer the hand disposal, you should know how to determine that there is malware on your workstation.

  • The system boots extremely slowly. The processes that turn on at startup are, in most cases, the cause of long boot. At the taskbar you can see all currently launched programs, and choose the ones that are useful and which are not.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the quantity of advertisement increased notably - this is, most likely, virus.
  • Critical faults while using software, shutdown or restart of a machine without the user's permit.
  • The emergence of the suspicious software in the system. If the software emerges in your system without your consent - it is, nothing else than the malware.

If you see one of the mentioned above symptoms on your PC - you should perform a full scan through antivirus, or manually get rid of all the unwanted and dangerous tools from your PC. Don't trust in everything you see on the Internet, watch at the status of your machine, and it will anytime be clean and efficient.
