How to protect the computer?

To prevent penetration by such kind of malicious software in the future, you must know for sure in which way got onto the laptop. Hijackers use plenty of ways, but we'll separate them on three main groups:

  • Download from an untrusted web-site. When you are on a web-site, you see a confirmation to install miraculous programs, which may greatly assist you in some cases. Such tools have the bounded list of features: self download of each update or driver for your hardware, the improvement of Internet surfing, giving the info about beneficial offers on the Net, the implementation of definite actions in Twitter, search for the newest toll-free content such as music, games and movies. If on the web-page you find a suggestion to install the software with similar features - it is very dangerous, and the web-page itself is untrusted.
  • Malware can be bundled with other software. Practically every free tool proposes you to get something except the needed tool. You download the software, and then you see the window with the proposal to get the browser, the new extension for it, marvelous file manager, antivirus, and, maybe, few different weird, but very "efficient" tools. You do not even need to decide anything because the all fields are already filled, and in most cases, it is really hard to cancel the undesired installations.
  • The straight download by user. It is also possible, because when the people read an alluring description of the tool, they believe that it is highly efficient.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread malware but it is rarely used by advertising programs. If you came to these words, we think, that hijacker is gone for good. If you prefer the deletion in manual mode, you have to know how to realize that there is a virus on your computer.

  • Slow boot of Operating System. The programs that run at startup are, in most cases, the reason of tardy boot. On the taskbar you will see all currently launched programs, and decide which are reliable and which are not.
  • Appearance of advertisement in all tabs. If the amount of advertising has grown up noticeably - it is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • Critical failures when using programs, shutdown or restart of a workstation without the user's permission.
  • You notice a lot of programs which you haven't installed. If the program appears on the PC without your resolution - it's, most likely, unwanted.

If you notice one of these symptoms on your machine - you should do an overall scan through anti-virus, or manually delete all the undesired and harmful programs from your PC. Don't trust in everything you see on the Internet, track the status of your PC and it will always be fast and effective.
