How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you need to know about any adware: how not to let it enter your system. Adware use a lot of ways, but we'll separate them on three main groups:

  • Infection through a suspicious site. Some websites disseminate the malware and they don't even try to hide it. Such tools have the limited list of functions: giving the info about best discounts on the Internet, the enhancement of Internet browsing, providing the newest unpaid media-content such as games, music and movies, automated download of each update or driver for your gear, the implementation of certain tasks in Twitter. Any such feature is already built into the browsers, or present in the list of Windows services, which means - such programs are completely worthless, and the web-page, which propagates them is, apparently, dangerous.
  • Hijackers may be bundled with other tools. Practically every toll-free program suggests you to get something aside from the needed tool. You download the software, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the proposal of the installation of the browser, the additional extension for it, anti-virus, marvelous media player, and, maybe, a pair of another strange, but highly "useful" tools. The installation is already verified, and once you click "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll install 2-3 useless tools, instead of one that you wish to install.
  • Sometimes user downloads adware by his own will. Smart composed specification of the product and its useful (and nonexistent) functions deludes the customer, and he sets up malware.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread malware but the adware almost don't use it. We believe that if you're reading this paragraph of the guide, Safe-web.tk will be completely uninstalled from the laptop. The well anti-viral tools understand to locate malware, but if you prefer the manual removal - you should know all symptoms of virus.

  • OS boots very slowly. The processes that launch at startup are, in most cases, the reason of long boot. At the taskbar you will see all currently working programs, and decide the ones that are reliable and which are not.
  • Appearance of ads in all tabs. If the numbers of advertisement increased notably - that is, most likely, virus.
  • The reputable tools became unstable and slow, machine restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • The appearance of the suspicious tools on the PC. If the program emerges in your system without your resolution - it is, nothing else than the adware.

Any of these symptoms shows the malware threat, and the proper reaction is a way to avoid the harm. Be watchful on the Internet, follow the condition of your PC, and it will be ready for anything.
