How to protect the computer?

To prevent similar issues, you need to understand precisely in which way Trojan.Adclicker got into the workstation. Malware use lots of ways, but we'll divide them on three basic groups:

  • Infection through a malicious web-page. Some websites disseminate the malware and aren't even hiding it. These tools have the limited list of features: providing the newest free media-content such as movies, games and music, the fulfillment of definite tasks in Twitter, self download of every driver or update for your hardware, the acceleration of Net surfing, search for most profitable discounts on the Web. If on some web-site you find a suggestion to download the software with these features - it is absolutely harmful, and the web-page itself is untrusted.
  • Download in bundles with other software. If you have ever used the unpaid software, you understand what that means. You install the tool, and then you see the window with the suggestion to install the antivirus, browser, the new add-on for it, marvelous media player, and, maybe, some different weird, but very "useful" tools. The installation is already confirmed, and once you press "OK", the installation starts, and you’ll install 2-3 unknown programs, besides the needed one.
  • The straight download by user. Carefully composed description of the software and its brilliant (and nonexistent) functions misinforms the user, and he downloads malware.

The infection 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 suppose that by the time you're reading this paragraph of the guide, Trojan.Adclicker will be already uninstalled from the computer. The well antiviruses know how to locate a virus, but if you prefer the uninstall in manual mode - you have to know all symptoms of infection.

  • Operating System boots extremely slowly. The processes that turn on at startup are, in most cases, the cause of slow boot. Inspect the taskbar, and search for undesired programs.
  • Appearance of advertisement in the browser. If the quantity of advertisement has grown up dramatically - this is, most likely, the undesired software.
  • Critical failures while using tools, shutdown or reboot of a laptop without the user's resolution.
  • You see lots of software which you've never seen before. If the software appears on the machine without your consent - it is, nothing else than the malware.

Every of these symptoms informs about the virus threat, and the early reaction is a chance to prevent the damage. Don't trust in everything you see on the Net, watch for the symptoms of malware on the PC, and it will anytime be clean and efficient.
