How to protect the computer?

There is one significant thing that you have to understand about any virus: how not to let it enter your computer. This happens through three basic ways:

  • Infection through a viral web-page. When you open a website, you see a confirmation to install brilliant software that might seriously help you in some things. The features of these programs are ordinary, they are: automated installation of all updates and drivers for your devices, providing the latest free media-content such as music, movies and games, the acceleration of Net browsing, search for most profitable discounts on the Web, the performance of specific tasks in Facebook. If on any site you receive an offer to download the software with these functions - it is completely harmful, and the site itself is unreliable.
  • Adware might be attached to helpful software. If you often use the free tools, you understand what we are talking about. You download the program, and during the installation there is a window with the suggestion of the installation of the browser, the new toolbar for it, brilliant media player, AV-tool, and God knows what else. There's no need to decide anything because the all fields are already checked, and in most cases, it is really complicated to decline the installation of unwanted programs.
  • In some cases user downloads harmful software voluntarily. Smart composed description of the tool and its wonderful (and nonexistent) advantages deceives the customer, and he installs malware.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute viruses but the adware almost don't use it. We suppose that if you're reading these words, will be totally removed from the computer. If you prefer the hand removal, you should know how to realize that your PC has a virus.

  • Operating System boots very slowly. The processes that turn on at startup are, most often, the reason of slow boot. At the taskbar you can see all currently launched programs, and choose the ones that are helpful and which are not.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the numbers of hype increased noticeably - it is, most likely, virus.
  • The good programs became slowly and unstable, computer restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • You see a lot of installed tools which you haven't installed. If the software appears in your system without your consent - it's, nothing else than the adware.

If you see one of the described above red flags on your PC - you need to perform a full scan with assistance of anti-viral tool, or manually get rid of all the undesired and harmful programs from your PC. Be careful on the Net, watch for the symptoms of virus on your machine, and it will be ready for anything.
