How infects the system

Following a link or opening a document might lead to the instant download of god-knows-what onto your laptop, and it could be pretty much worse than adware.
  • Direct installation. Some customers install suspicious programs supposing that they're useful, and the most effective technique to avoid it is remembering how to tell a malicious program from a good one. Oftentimes, they disguise themselves as trusted utilities and pick the ones whose aims aren’t clearly understandable. To this sort belong various browsing programs aiming to enhance your browser or assist you in finding everything starting with information on a specific topic and ending with "all the most profitable giveaways". From time to time, fraudsters go for system optimizers and add-ons for Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr. If you see such a utility – it'd be wiser to look for a lot of positive reviews about it on popular sites before you download it.
  • Sponsored installation. It’s the method when an undesired utility is united with a bunch of other programs. All programs in the package are advertisement-oriented or viruses, except a single one that's really useful. Generally, the helpful tool is on the title, and the customer thinks that he will get it, but all he downloads is a lot of adware. We know the moment, during installation, when you will be able to choose the advanced installation way and reject the installation of perilous utilities. Believe us, you do not want to miss it. Just look at the information in the dialogue windows while you're installing unpaid utilities, and keep out of suspicious files.
