Every hour, banners and ads are becoming more and if you want to delete the malware - you will fail, because the virus restores itself after removal. In this entry, we will explain you what is TVHero, how to remove it, and how to avoid infection in the future.


The malicious software that show you ads and interfere to use the Internet can be divided on two classes: adware and hijackers.

How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such malware in the future, you should understand closely how TVHero got on your workstation. Malware use plenty of ways, but we'll divide them on three main groups:

  • Download from a malicious website. There are web-pages, which propagate the adware without any precautions. Such programs have the bounded list of features: the enhancement of Internet browsing, the execution of specific actions in Facebook, providing the latest free content such as games, music and movies, automatic download of all drivers and updates for your devices, showing the information about beneficial discounts on the Web. All of these features are already integrated into the browsers, or is in the list of Windows services, so, it means that such software are simply worthless, and the web-site, which disseminates them is, apparently, infected.
  • Download in bundles with free software. Almost every unpaid program proposes you to install something except the tool that you need. You download the tool, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the proposal to install the brilliant file manager, browser, the new toolbar for it, antivirus, and God knows what else. There's no need to make a decision because the installation has already been verified, and in some cases, it is really hard to decline the installation of useless programs.
  • The direct installation by user. Clever composed description of the product and its brilliant (and nonexistent) functions misinforms the user, and he downloads the hijacker.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread malware but the adware almost don't use it. If you came to this part, we suppose, that hijacker is gone for good. The reputable AV-programs understand to detect malware, but if you prefer the hand removal - you should know all signs of virus.

  • Slow loading of OS. The processes that launch at startup are, in most cases, the cause of long boot. Inspect the taskbar, and uninstall the undesired programs from Control Panel.
  • Appearance of ads in the browser. If the amount of advertising has grown up noticeably - it is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • The dependable tools runs unstable and slow, machine restarts and turns off by itself.
  • The appearance of the suspicious tools in the system. If the software shows up on your machine without your permission - it is, nothing else than the adware.

If you notice one of the mentioned above symptoms in your system - you need to do a full scan with help of special software, or manually delete all the useless and harmful tools from your machine. Be cautious on the Web, track the state of your PC, and it will be ready for any task.
