How to protect the computer?

To prevent penetration by such sort of viruses in the future, you must know for sure in which way got into your machine. Adware use a lot of ways, but we'll divide them on three basic groups:

  • Infection through a suspicious web-site. There are web-pages, which spread the adware without any precautions. Such tools have the limited list of functions: search for most profitable offers on the Net, acting installation of each driver or update for your gear, the enhancement of Web browsing, the performance of specific tasks in Facebook, search for the newest toll-free content such as movies, music and games. If on any web-site you receive a suggestion to install the software with such functions - it is very harmful, and the website itself is untrusted.
  • Download in the package with good software. Practically every toll-free program proposes you to install something except the tool that you want. You install the tool, and during the installation there is a window with the proposal to install the anti-virus, miraculous file manager, browser, the new add-on for it, and God knows what else. You do not even need to make a decision because the installation has already been confirmed, and in some cases, it will be really difficult to cancel the undesired installations.
  • The direct download by user. It is very possible, because when some customers see a colorful description of software, they believe that it is highly useful.

The infection via e-mail is also very effective, but this technique is used mostly by malware and ransomware, and not by advertisement software. We believe that when you're reading these words, will be already uninstalled from the workstation. If you choose the deletion in manual manner, you should know how to realize that there is a virus on your laptop.

  • Slow boot of Windows. The majority of viruses, during the installation, tune themselves to run at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. Look at the taskbar, and search for suspicious software.
  • Appearance of advertisement in all tabs. If the numbers of advertising increased notably - that is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • Critical failures when using tools, reboot or shutdown of a PC without the user's consent.
  • You notice a lot of software which you haven't installed. If the tool shows up in the system without your permission - it's, nothing else than the virus.

If you find one of these symptoms on your machine - you need to perform a full scan with assistance of anti-virus, or manually delete all the unwanted and dangerous programs from your system. Be watchful on the Web, track the condition of your PC, and it will be ready for anything.
