How to protect the computer?

There is one significant thing that you have to understand about any adware: how not to let it crawl inside your system. Malware use plenty of ways, but they all can be separated on three basic groups:

  • Download from an untrusted web-page. When you're on a website, you are shown a confirmation to download miraculous software, which may greatly support you in something. Such programs have the limited list of functions: search for most profitable offers on the Net, search for the newest toll-free content such as movies, music and games, the enhancement of Web browsing, the performance of specific tasks in Facebook, acting installation of each driver or update for your gear. All of these functions are already built into the browsers, or is in the list of Windows services, so, it means that these software are simply useless, and the web-site that spreads them is, probably, unsafe.
  • Suspicious software can be attached to worthy programs. Literally each unpaid program proposes you to install something except the tool that you want. You install the software, and in one of the windows you see the proposal of the installation of the miraculous file manager, browser, the new extension for it, special software, and, maybe, a pair of another strange, but highly "useful" tools. The checkboxes are already filled, and if you click "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll earn 4-5 unknown programs, instead of one that you would like to use.
  • The direct download by user. It is highly possible, because when some users see an attractive description of the program, they believe that it is really useful.

The infection via e-mail is also highly efficient, but this way is used mostly by malware and ransomware, and not by advertisement software. If you came to this part, we believe, that GeoByPass is already eliminated. If you choose the by-hand disposal, you must know how to determine that your machine has a virus.

  • Slow loading of OS. The processes that turn on at startup are, in most cases, the reason of tardy boot. Inspect the taskbar, and uninstall the suspicious tools from Control Panel.
  • Appearance of ads in all tabs. If the amount of hype increased dramatically - this is, most likely, the unwanted software.
  • Critical faults while using software, shutdown or reboot of a laptop without the user's resolution.
  • The appearance of the suspicious programs on the computer. If the program appears in your system without your resolution - it is, nothing else than the malware.

Any of these symptoms informs about the virus threat, and the proper reaction is a way to prevent the damage. Be watchful on the Net, watch for the symptoms of infection on the computer, and it will be ready for anything.
