How to protect the computer?

To prevent suchlike problems in the future, you have to know for sure how got into the workstation. This may happen via three basic ways:

  • Download from a viral web-site. When you're on a web-site, you are shown a banner with a suggestion to install brilliant programs that may seriously assist you in some things. Such programs have the limited list of advantages: the improvement of Internet surfing, giving the info about beneficial offers on the Net, search for the newest toll-free content such as music, games and movies, self download of each update or driver for your hardware, the implementation of definite actions in Twitter. If on the web-page you see an offer to install the software with any of these features - it is completely harmful, and the web-page itself is unsafe.
  • Malware may be bundled with reliable software. If you have ever downloaded the unpaid programs, you are familiar with this. You install the program, and during the installation there is a window with the proposal to install the antivirus, browser, the new add-on for it, brilliant file manager, and God knows what else. The checkboxes are already filled, and if you press "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll earn few programs that you do not need, instead of one that you wish to have.
  • In some cases user installs dangerous programs by his own will. It is very possible, because when some customers see a tempting description of the tool, they believe that it is highly useful.

The infection via viral e-mail attachment is also extremely popular, but this method is used most of the cases by ransomware and viruses, and not by advertisement software. If you read this paragraph, we think, that is already gone. If you choose the deletion in manual manner, you have to know how to determine that there is malware on your computer.

  • Operating System boots really slowly. The majority of adware, 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 launch every day and consume your time and CPU power. On the taskbar you will see all currently working tools, and choose which are useful and which are not.
  • Appearance of advertising in all tabs. If the numbers of advertisement has grown up dramatically - that is, most likely, virus.
  • Critical errors while using tools, shutdown or restart of a workstation without your consent.
  • The appearance of the strange tools in the system. If the software shows up in your system without your permit - it's, nothing else than the malware.

Any of these red flags shows the malware threat, and the proper reaction is a chance to prevent the harm. Be cautious on the Net, watch for the symptoms of malware on the PC, and it will be ready for any job.
