How to protect the computer?

To prevent similar problems in the future, you should know closely how got on your computer. Hijackers use a lot of ways, but we'll separate them on three basic groups:

  • Download from a suspicious site. There are web-sites, which propagate the adware and they don't even try to hide it. Such tools have the confined list of features: the implementation of definite actions in Twitter, giving the info about beneficial offers on the Net, self download of each update or driver for your hardware, the improvement of Internet surfing, search for the newest toll-free content such as music, games and movies. Any such option is already built into the browsers, or is in the list of Windows services, which means - these software are simply needless, and the website that propagates them is, most likely, harmful.
  • Viruses might be attached to reliable software. Almost each unpaid program suggests you to get something aside from the needed tool. You download the tool, and then you see the window with the confirmation on the installation of the AV-program, miraculous media player, browser, the new extension for it, and God knows what else. There's no need to make a decision because the all fields are already filled, and in some cases, it will be very hard to abort the undesired installations.
  • The direct download by user. Carefully composed specification of the tool and its marvelous (and nonexistent) functions deludes the customer, and he downloads the virus.

The e-mails are used very often, to distribute viruses but it is rarely used by advertising programs. We suppose that when you're reading these words, will be totally uninstalled from the PC. If you choose the by-hand deletion, you must know how to realize that there is malware on your workstation.

  • Slow loading of Operating System. The majority of malicious programs, during the installation, tune themselves to launch at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. At the taskbar you will see all currently working programs, and choose the ones that are useful and which aren't.
  • Appearance of advertisement in the browser. If the numbers of ads increased noticeably - it is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • The dependable tools functions unstable and slow, computer restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • You notice lots of installed tools that you haven't installed. If the software appears in your system without your permit - it is, nothing else than the adware.

Each of these symptoms indicates the malware threat, and the timely reaction is a way to prevent the damage. Don't trust in everything you see on the Internet, watch for the symptoms of infection on your computer, and it will be ready for anything.
