Advantages of different removal methods


How to protect the computer?

To prevent similar problems in the future, you should understand exactly in which way Cherimoya got into the workstation. Viruses use plenty of ways, but they all can be divided on three main groups:

  • Infection through a viral site. Some websites disseminate the malware and aren't even hiding it. The functions of suchlike tools are ordinary, they are: the acceleration of Net surfing, providing the newest free media-content such as movies, games and music, self download of every driver or update for your hardware, search for most profitable discounts on the Web, the fulfillment of definite tasks in Twitter. All of these functions are already integrated into the browsers, or present in the list of Windows services, so, it means that these tools are just worthless, and the website that disseminates them is, probably, infected.
  • Suspicious software can be attached to free programs. Almost every toll-free software suggests you to get something aside from the tool that you wish. You install the tool, and then you see the window with the confirmation on the installation of the miraculous media player, antivirus, browser, the additional extension for it, and, maybe, some different weird, but very "useful" tools. You do not even need to decide anything because the all boxes are already filled, and in some cases, it will be very difficult to decline the undesired installations.
  • The direct installation by user. It is highly possible, because when some users read an attractive specification of the tool, they decide that it is very efficient.

The penetration via viral e-mail attachment is also highly efficient, but this manner is used mostly by ransomware and viruses, and not by advertisement software. We hope that by the time you're reading these words, Cherimoya will be totally removed from your machine. The known anti-viruses know how to detect malware, but if you prefer the manual deletion - you must know all symptoms of infection.

  • Slow loading of Windows. The majority of malware, during the installation, tune themselves to run at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. Inspect the taskbar, and uninstall the undesired software from Control Panel.
  • Pop-ups are everywhere. If the quantity of advertising has grown up noticeably - that is, most likely, the unwanted software.
  • Critical failures while using programs, restart or shutdown of a workstation without your consent.
  • The appearance of the suspicious software on your PC. If the program appears in your system without your consent - it's, most likely, harmful.

Every of these symptoms indicates the malware threat, and if you react in time - you will prevent the harm. Be careful on the Web, track the condition of your machine, and it will anytime be clean and effective.
