How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such type of hijackers in the future, you have to understand exactly in which way got into the laptop. This can happen through three basic manners:

  • Download from a suspicious web-site. There are web-sites, which distribute the malware and aren't even hiding it. The functions of such software are common, they are: giving the info about beneficial offers on the Net, self download of each update or driver for your hardware, the implementation of definite actions in Twitter, search for the newest toll-free content such as music, games and movies, the improvement of Internet surfing. If on the site you receive an offer to download the software with similar functions - it is very malicious, and the site itself is suspicious.
  • Download in the package with reliable software. If you have ever installed the unpaid software, you know what that means. You download the tool, and in one of the windows you see the suggestion to install the anti-virus, browser, the new toolbar for it, brilliant media player, and God knows what else. You do not even need to decide anything because the all boxes are already filled, and in most cases, it is very hard to decline the installation of suspicious programs.
  • The straight download by user. It is also possible, because when some people read an alluring description of software, they decide that it is very effective.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread viruses but the advertising programs almost don't use it. We believe that when you're reading this paragraph of the article, will be completely uninstalled from your machine. The known antiviruses understand to recognize malware, but if you prefer the removal in manual manner - you have to know all signs of infection.

  • Slow boot of OS. The majority of viruses, during the installation, tune themselves to turn on at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. At the taskbar you will see all currently working programs, and decide the ones that are useful and which are not.
  • Appearance of ads in all tabs. If the quantity of advertisement has grown up notably - that is, most likely, virus.
  • Critical failures when using software, shutdown or reboot of a PC without your permit.
  • The emergence of the strange software on your PC. If the tool shows up on the machine without your permit - it's, nothing else than the adware.

If you find one of the mentioned above symptoms on your computer - you have to perform a full scan with use of anti-virus, or manually delete all the undesired and dangerous software from your machine. Be cautious on the Net, track the condition of your computer, and it will be ready for any task.
