Advantages of different removal methods


How to protect the computer?

There is one significant thing that you have to know about any virus: how not to let it enter your computer. Malware use plenty of ways, but we'll divide them on three basic groups:

  • Download from a dangerous web-site. Some websites spread the dangerous software and aren't even hiding it. The advantages of such software are usual, they are: the improvement of Net browsing, search for advantageous offers on the Net, automatic installation of every driver or update for your hardware, search for the latest toll-free content such as movies, games and music, the execution of some actions in the social networks. If on any site you see a suggestion to download the software with similar features - it is really malicious, and the website itself is unreliable.
  • Download in the package with reliable tools. If you have ever downloaded the free programs, you are familiar with this. You download the software, and during the installation there is a window with the confirmation on the installation of the anti-viral tool, brilliant file manager, browser, the new extension for it, and God knows what else. You do not even need to make a decision because the installation has already been confirmed, and in some cases, it is very complicated to abort the installation of unwanted programs.
  • The direct installation by user. Carefully composed description of the software and its brilliant (and nonexistent) features misinforms the customer, and he downloads adware.

The penetration via e-mail is also highly effective, but this technique is used mostly by ransomware and viruses, and not by advertisement software. We hope that if you're reading these words, OutBrowse Revenyou will be totally eliminated from your PC. If you prefer the manual disposal, you must know how to determine that your laptop has a virus.

  • Windows boots very slowly. The processes that launch at startup are, in most cases, the reason of slow boot. At the taskbar you can see all currently working tools, and choose which are reliable and which aren't.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the quantity of hype increased notably - it is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • Critical failures while using tools, shutdown or reboot of a machine without the user's permit.
  • You notice many programs that you've never seen before. If the software appears in the system without your permit - it's, most likely, unwanted.

If you notice one of these red flags in your system - you should make a total scan with assistance of anti-viral software, or manually remove all the undesired and malicious tools from your PC. Don't believe in everything you see on the Web, watch at the status of your machine, and it will always be clean and effective.
