How to protect the computer?

To prevent suchlike problems, you must know for sure how got on your PC. This occurs through three main techniques:

  • Infection through a dangerous web-site. When you open a website, you are shown a pop-up window with an invitation to install brilliant software, which may seriously help you in something. These tools have the bounded list of functions: the improvement of Internet browsing, the realization of certain tasks in the social networks, giving the information about beneficial deals on the Net, acting download of every driver or update for your devices, search for the newest unpaid content such as games, movies and music. If on the site you find a suggestion to install the program with similar features - it is completely malicious, and the site itself is unreliable.
  • Adware can be attached to other software. If you often use the toll-free programs, you understand what that means. You install the tool, and then you see the window with the suggestion to install the brilliant file manager, AV-software, browser, the new add-on for it, and God knows what else. The checkboxes are already filled, and if you click "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll get 2-3 tools that you do not need, instead of one that you wish to get.
  • Sometimes user downloads hijackers by his own will. It is highly possible, because when the people read a colorful description of software, they think that it is really efficient.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread viruses but the adware almost don't use it. We believe that when you're reading this part of the article, will be totally removed from the laptop. The good AV-programs know how to locate malware, but if you prefer the hand deletion - you must know all red flags of virus.

  • Slow boot of Windows. Most of the viruses, during the installation, tune themselves to launch at startup, and it doesn't matter if this program is used once in 6 months - it will start every day and take your time and CPU power.
  • Look at the taskbar, and delete the undesired software from Control Panel.
  • Appearance of ads in the browser. If the amount of ads has grown up notably - it is, most likely, virus. The reliable tools became unstable and slow, computer restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • The emergence of the bizarre programs on your machine. If the software emerges in your system without your permission - it's, nothing else than the adware.

Every of these symptoms indicates the malware threat, and the proper reaction is a chance to prevent the harm. Don't trust in everything you see on the Web, follow the state of your PC, and it will always be clean and effective.
