How to protect the computer?

To prevent penetration by such virus, you must understand closely in which way Wishapp got into your PC. Hijackers use a lot of ways, but they all can be divided on three basic groups:

  • Infection through an untrusted website. When you open a web-page, you see a confirmation to download some programs that might greatly help you in something. The functions of these software are ordinary, they are: the execution of specific actions in Facebook, showing the information about beneficial discounts on the Web, the enhancement of Internet browsing, automatic download of all drivers and updates for your devices, providing the latest free content such as games, music and movies. If on some website you find an offer to download the software with similar features - it is very malicious, and the website itself is suspicious.
  • Viruses may be bundled with helpful programs. Nearly each toll-free software allows you to install something aside from the needed tool. You install the software, and in one of the windows you see the suggestion of the installation of the super-useful media player, browser, the additional toolbar for it, anti-viral program, and God knows what else. You do not even need to decide anything because the installation has already been verified, and in most cases, it will be very complicated to decline the undesired installations.
  • Sometimes user downloads adware voluntarily. Clever written specification of the tool and its brilliant (and nonexistent) functions deludes the customer, and he sets up malware.

The infection via e-mail is also extremely effective, but this method is used mostly by malware and ransomware, and not by advertisement software. We suppose that if you're reading these words, Wishapp will be totally uninstalled from the system. The dependable anti-viruses know how to detect malware, but if you prefer the deletion in manual mode - you should know all signs of infection.

  • The system boots really slowly. Most of the malware, during the installation, tune themselves to run at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. On the taskbar you can see all currently working tools, and choose the ones that are good and which aren't.
  • Appearance of ads in all tabs. If the numbers of hype has grown up notably - that is, most likely, virus.
  • Critical faults while using tools, shutdown or restart of a workstation without your permit.
  • The appearance of the bizarre programs on the computer. If the software shows up on the PC without your permission - it is, nothing else than the virus.

Each of these symptoms indicates the virus threat, and if you react in time - you will prevent the harm. Be careful on the Net, follow the status of your machine, and it will anytime be fast and effective.
