How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such kind of viruses in the future, you should understand exactly in which way got onto your machine. Malware use plenty of ways, but we'll separate them on three main groups:

  • Download from a malicious site. When you're on a web-site, you see a banner with a request to install few tools, which might greatly support you in some cases. The functions of such software are usual, they are: automated installation of all updates and drivers for your devices, search for most profitable discounts on the Web, the performance of specific tasks in Facebook, the acceleration of Net browsing, providing the latest free media-content such as music, movies and games. If on the site you find an offer to install the tool with any of these functions - it is really malicious, and the web-page itself is unsafe.
  • Download in bundles with free software. Literally every unpaid software proposes you to install something aside from the needed tool. You download the program, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the proposal to install the AV-tool, brilliant media player, browser, the new toolbar for it, and God knows what else. You do not even need to make a decision because the all fields are already checked, and in most cases, it is really difficult to cancel the undesired installations.
  • The straight download by user. Carefully written description of the tool and its magnificent (and nonexistent) features deceives the user, and he downloads the tool.

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. We believe that by the time you're reading these words, will be fully deleted from the laptop. The well antiviruses know how to locate malware, but if you prefer the by-hand disposal - you must know all signs of virus.

  • Slow loading of Windows. The programs that launch at startup are, very often, the reason of tardy boot. On the taskbar you can see all currently launched tools, and choose the ones that are useful and which are not.
  • Appearance of advertising in on every site. If the quantity of advertising increased notably - that is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • Critical faults when using software, shutdown or restart of a laptop without the user's permit.
  • The emergence of the bizarre tools in the system. If the software appears in your system without your permit - it is, nothing else than the malware.

If you find one of these red flags on your computer - you should do an overall scan through antivirus, or manually get rid of all the useless and dangerous software from your machine. Be cautious on the Internet, track the condition of your machine, and it will be ready for anything.
