Advantages of different removal methods


How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you should know about any virus: how not to let it enter the system. This happens via three basic methods:

  • Download from a dangerous site. When you're on a web-site, you see a pop-up window with a request to download certain tools, which might greatly help you in some cases. These tools have the bounded list of advantages: giving the info about beneficial offers on the Net, search for the newest toll-free content such as music, games and movies, the improvement of Internet surfing, the implementation of definite actions in Twitter, self download of each update or driver for your hardware. All of these options are already built into the browsers, or present in the list of Windows services, so, it means that such software are just needless, and the site that spreads them is, most likely, malicious.
  • Download in bundles with reliable programs. If you often use the unpaid programs, you are familiar with this. You download the software, and in one of the windows you see the proposal to install the browser, the new extension for it, anti-viral software, marvelous file manager, and, maybe, few different strange, but very "useful" tools. The installation is already verified, and as soon as you click "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll install 3-4 programs that you do not need, besides the useful one.
  • The straight download by user. It is also possible, because when the customers see an alluring specification of software, they think that it is very efficient.

The e-mails are also often used, to spread malware but the adware almost don't use it. We suppose that when you're reading these words, will be fully uninstalled from the computer. If you prefer the manual removal, you must know how to understand that there is a virus on your computer.

  • OS boots very slowly. Most of the adware, during the installation, tune themselves to run at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. Inspect the taskbar, and uninstall the unwanted programs from Control Panel.
  • Appearance of ads in on every site. If the amount of ads has grown up noticeably - this is, most likely, virus.
  • Critical faults when using programs, shutdown or reboot of a PC without your resolution.
  • The appearance of the suspicious software on the machine. If the program emerges on your machine without your permit - it is, most likely, dangerous.

If you find one of the mentioned above symptoms in your system - you have to make an overall scan through anti-virus, or manually remove all the useless and dangerous software from your PC. Be cautious on the Net, watch for the symptoms of virus on your computer, and it will always be fast and functional.
