Search engine, and home-page are changed. Properties of browser shortcut are changed and the systems which regulate the amount of ads are switched off.

In addition, to that the amount of advertisement has grown up noticeably, its quality became really low. In rare cases, people just can’t use the Net, because when they try to visit the specified web-page, virus redirects him to the infected one. Why adware does this? All actions of Wizzcaster are aimed at one purpose: to force the user to make a click. These links frequently lead to third-class web-sites providing useless goods, or services.

How to protect the computer?

There is one significant thing that you must understand about PC virus: how not to let it enter the PC. This occurs via three main manners:

  • Infection through an untrusted website. When you're on a web-site, you are shown a confirmation to install special programs, which would greatly help you in something. The features of suchlike software are common, they are: showing the information about beneficial discounts on the Web, automatic download of all drivers and updates for your devices, the execution of specific actions in Facebook, providing the latest free content such as games, music and movies, the enhancement of Internet browsing. All of these functions are already integrated into the browsers, or is in the OS tools list, which means - these tools are just worthless, and the site that propagates them is, apparently, unsafe.
  • Download in the package with free software. If you have ever downloaded the toll-free programs, you are familiar with this. You download the software, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the suggestion to install the miraculous file manager, removal software, browser, the new extension for it, and God knows what else. There's no need to decide anything because the installation has already been confirmed, and in most cases, it will be really hard to abort the installation of suspicious programs.
  • The direct installation by user. It is very possible, because when the people see a colorful specification of the tool, they believe that it is highly effective.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread malware but the advertising programs almost don't use it. We hope that when you're reading this part of the article, Wizzcaster will be fully uninstalled from the system. The good anti-viruses understand to detect a virus, but if you prefer the manual disposal - you should know all symptoms of infection.

  • Slow loading of Windows. The tools that run at startup are, very often, the reason of long boot. At the taskbar you can see all currently working programs, and choose which are reliable and which are not.
  • Appearance of advertisement in on every site. If the amount of hype increased noticeably - it is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • The good software runs unstable and slow, PC restarts and turns off by itself.
  • You see a lot of software that you haven't installed. If the tool appears in the system without your resolution - it is, nothing else than the virus.

Any of these red flags shows 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 the PC, and it will be ready for any work.
