My Lucky 123

The dangerous programs which show you links and interfere to surf the Net can be divided on two classes: adware and hijackers. The first group affects the whole machine, putting banners and other promotional information on each new tab in browser and on the desktop. The second group acts exactly in the browser by changing the search results, showing fake results and sending you to viral web-pages. Both series of viruses have tricky lists of the features and profits to make you believe in their utility. However, the longer these programs will dwell in your system, the more deplorable will be the state of your PC. In the end, you'll understand that your workstation is full clogged with all types of strange, suspicious or even really dangerous software.

Then, it is the time to capture the browser. Homepage and search system are changed. Properties of browser shortcut are varied and the systems which regulate the amount of advertisement are switched off. The browsers now have a function which hides the pop-ups, undesired animations, banners and other types of hype. The virus deactivates these services, and you understand that the quantity of advertisement in the browser is extremely increased. Moreover that adware shows you all the hype on the Internet, doesn't matter, are they reliable or not, it shows you obviously harmful commercial content. If malware lives on the laptop for 5-7 days, customer just can't use the Net because of banners, redirections and advertisements in browser and sometimes even to launch the laptop. So, what is the reason of this? The point of these actions is to force the user to click on the links shown by the hijacker. These links often lead to unknown web-pages which suggest useless goods, or services. Those web-sites simply aren't visited by anyone but their developers and they have only one way out: to lure people to the website with the help of a trick. It is not necessary to specify that any buy or download on the site, provided you by hijacker, can call harmful effects, for example - getting malicious software.

How to protect the computer?

To prevent similar issues, you need to realize exactly how My Lucky 123 got on the computer. Viruses use plenty of ways, but they all can be divided on three main groups:

  • Infection through a dangerous web-page. Some websites spread the undesired programs without any precautions. The advantages of suchlike programs are usual, they are: search for advantageous discounts on the Web, automated download of all updates and drivers for your hardware, the realization of some actions in the social networks, the acceleration of Net surfing, showing the newest free media-content such as music, movies and games. If on the site you find a suggestion to download the tool with any of these features - it is absolutely dangerous, and the site itself is untrusted.
  • Download in bundles with free programs. If you often use the unpaid tools, you know what that means. You install the software, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the suggestion to install the browser, the additional add-on for it, antivirus, miraculous media player, and God knows what else. You do not even need to decide anything because the all boxes are already checked, and in some cases, it is really difficult to abort the installation of unwanted software.
  • In some cases user installs hijackers by his own will. It is also possible, because when the customers read a tempting specification of software, they decide that it is highly useful.

The infection via viral e-mail attachment is also very popular, but this way is used mostly by malware and ransomware, and not by adware. If you came to this paragraph, we think, that My Lucky 123 is gone for good. If you choose the manual removal, you must know how to determine that your laptop has a virus.

  • Slow loading of Windows. The programs that launch at startup are, very often, the cause of long boot. Check the taskbar, and search for useless programs.
  • Appearance of advertisement in the browser. If the quantity of ads has grown up dramatically - it is, most likely, virus.
  • The reliable tools functions slowly and unstable, machine reboots and shuts down by itself.
  • The appearance of the strange software on the computer. If the tool emerges on your PC without your resolution - it's, most likely, undesired.

Each of these symptoms informs about the virus threat, and the early reaction is a way to avoid the harm. Be cautious on the Web, watch for the symptoms of virus on your PC, and it will always be fast and efficient.
