Advantages of different removal methods


How to protect the computer?

There is one simple thing that you have to understand about PC virus: how not to let it enter your system. This occurs via three main methods:

  • Infection through a suspicious web-page. When you open a web-site, you see a pop-up window with a suggestion to download miraculous software, which can greatly assist you in some things. The features of these tools are common, they are: the improvement of Net browsing, the execution of some actions in the social networks, search for the latest toll-free content such as movies, games and music, search for advantageous offers on the Net, automatic installation of every driver or update for your hardware. If on the web-page you find an offer to install the program with similar features - it is completely harmful, and the website itself is suspicious.
  • Malware might be bundled with good software. Literally every unpaid software allows you to install something except the tool that you want. You install the tool, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the suggestion of the installation of the antivirus, browser, the additional toolbar for it, miraculous media player, and God knows what else. The checkboxes are already filled, and once you click "OK", the installation starts, and you’ll earn 3-4 programs that you do not need, instead of needed one.
  • The straight download by user. Carefully composed description of the product and its wonderful (and nonexistent) functions deceives the customer, and he installs malware.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread undesired programs but the advertising programs almost don't use it. If you see this part, we think, that adware is gone for good. If you prefer the removal in manual mode, you need to know how to realize that your workstation has a virus.

  • OS boots very slowly. The processes that turn on at startup are, very often, the cause of slow boot. On the taskbar you will see all currently working programs, and choose which are useful and which aren't.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the amount of advertising has grown up dramatically - it is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • The reputable programs runs slowly and unstable, machine reboots and turns off by itself.
  • You notice a lot of software which you've never seen before. If the software shows up on the PC without your resolution - it is, nothing else than the malware.

If you find one of these symptoms on your PC - you need to perform a full scan through antivirus, or manually delete all the unwanted and malicious programs from your computer. Be cautious on the Net, watch at the condition of your PC, and it will be ready for anything.
