How to protect the computer?

To prevent similar issues, you need to know for sure how got on your system. Viruses use plenty of ways, but they all can be separated on three main groups:

  • Infection through a dangerous web-page. When you're on a web-page, you see a banner with an invitation to download few software that can seriously help you in something. The promises of suchlike tools are ordinary, they are: giving the info about beneficial offers on the Net, search for the newest toll-free content such as music, games and movies, the implementation of definite actions in Twitter, self download of each update or driver for your hardware, the improvement of Internet surfing. Any such feature is already integrated into the browsers, or present in the list of Windows services, which means - these software are just worthless, and the website that propagates them is, probably, unsafe.
  • Download in bundles with good tools. Literally every free software suggests you to get something except the tool that you want. You download the software, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the proposal to get the anti-virus, brilliant media player, browser, the new toolbar for it, and God knows what else. The installation is already confirmed, and as soon as you click "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll get 3-4 suspicious programs, instead of useful one.
  • The direct installation by user. It is very possible, because when the customers see a colorful specification of the tool, they believe that it is really useful.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute malware but it is rarely used by hijackers. If you read these words, we suppose, that hijacker is already deleted. The known anti-viral programs know how to locate a virus, but if you prefer the by-hand removal - you must know all symptoms of virus.

  • Slow loading of Windows. Most of the dangerous programs, during the installation, tune themselves to launch at startup, and it doesn't matter if this tool is used once in 6 months - it will start daily and consume your time and CPU power. Inspect the taskbar, and search for undesired programs.
  • Appearance of advertisement in the browser. If the numbers of advertising increased noticeably - this is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • The reputable software runs slowly and unstable, machine restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • You notice a lot of software that you haven't installed. If the program appears on your PC without your consent - it is, nothing else than the virus.

Each of these red flags indicates the malware threat, and if you react in time - you will prevent the damage. Don't believe in everything you see on the Web, look for the symptoms of infection on your machine, and it will anytime be fast and functional.
