All common browsers nowadays have a service that permits to hide the undesired ads, banners, pop-ups and other sorts of hype.

Advantages of different removal methods

 

How to protect the computer?

There is one simple thing that you have to understand about any virus: how not to let it enter the computer. Malware use plenty of ways, but they all can be divided on three main groups:

  • Infection through a viral web-page. There are websites, which disseminate the adware without any precautions. Suchlike tools have the confined list of advantages: acting download of any driver or update for your hardware, search for the latest toll-free content such as movies, music and games, providing the info about advantageous offers on the Web, the improvement of Web browsing, the realization of some tasks in Facebook. If on the web-page you receive an offer to download the program with any of these features - it is really harmful, and the site itself is suspicious.
  • Download in bundles with helpful software. If you have ever used the toll-free programs, you are familiar with this. You install the program, and during the installation there is a window with the suggestion of the installation of the miraculous media player, anti-virus, browser, the new extension for it, and, maybe, some another weird, but very "effective" tools. The checkboxes are already filled, and once you press "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll get 4-5 programs that you do not need, instead of one that you want to install.
  • The straight installation by user. It is very possible, because when the people see an alluring specification of software, they think that it is really efficient.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread malware but the advertising programs almost don't use it. If you see these words, we suppose, that GoCloudy is gone for good. The reputable anti-viral software know how to detect malware, but if you prefer the uninstall in manual mode - you must know all signs of virus.

  • The system boots really slowly. The majority of undesired programs, during the installation, tune themselves to turn on at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. Inspect the taskbar, and search for harmful tools.
  • Appearance of advertising in all tabs. If the numbers of hype has grown up notably - it is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • Critical errors when using programs, shutdown or reboot of a machine without the user's permit.
  • You see many software which you haven't installed. If the program emerges in the system without your permission - it's, nothing else than the malware.

If you notice one of the mentioned above symptoms on your machine - you need to make a full scan through removal program, or manually remove all the unwanted and malicious software from your machine. Be cautious on the Web, look for the symptoms of malware on your PC, and it will always be fast and effective.
