How to protect the computer?

To prevent penetration by such adware, you must realize exactly in which way Searchthisonline.com got onto the PC. Hijackers use plenty of ways, but they all can be divided on three main groups:

  • Infection through an untrusted web-page. When you're on a website, you see a pop-up window with a suggestion to download miraculous tools, which would seriously support you in some things. These programs have the bounded list of advantages: the implementation of definite actions in Twitter, giving the info about beneficial offers on the Net, the improvement of Internet surfing, search for the newest toll-free content such as music, games and movies, self download of each update or driver for your hardware. If on any web-page you receive a suggestion to install the tool with any of these features - it is completely dangerous, and the website itself is unsafe.
  • Malware may be bundled with free programs. Practically each free tool proposes you to get something besides the tool that you wish. You install the program, and in one of the windows you see the suggestion to get the browser, the new extension for it, super-useful file manager, antivirus, and God knows what else. The checkboxes are already filled, and once you click "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll get few useless tools, except the needed one.
  • Sometimes user installs hijackers by his own will. Smart composed description of the tool and its wonderful (and nonexistent) functions misleads the customer, and he downloads malware.

The penetration via e-mail is also very popular, but this manner is used most of the times by ransomware and viruses, and not by adware. If you came to this part, we think, that hijacker is already uninstalled. The good anti-viruses know how to locate a virus, but if you prefer the hand uninstall - you should know all red flags of infection.

  • Slow launch of OS. The processes that launch at startup are, very often, the cause of long boot. Inspect the taskbar, and search for useless software.
  • Appearance of advertising in all tabs. If the amount of advertisement has grown up noticeably - this is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • Critical faults when using programs, restart or shutdown of a workstation without your consent.
  • The emergence of the suspicious software in your system. If the program emerges on the machine without your permission - it is, most likely, harmful.

Every of these red flags shows the malware threat, and if you react in time - you will prevent the damage. Don't trust in everything you see on the Internet, look at the state of your PC, and it will be ready for any work.
