How to protect the computer?

To prevent penetration by such sort of unwanted programs, you have to realize precisely in which way got into the laptop. This happens via three main manners:

  • Infection through an untrusted website. When you are on a website, you are shown a banner with an invitation to download special software, which would seriously support you in some cases. Suchlike programs have the bounded list of functions: automated installation of all updates and drivers for your devices, providing the latest free media-content such as music, movies and games, search for most profitable discounts on the Web, the acceleration of Net browsing, the performance of specific tasks in Facebook. Any such feature is already integrated into the browsers, or is in the OS tools list, so, it means that such software are absolutely futile, and the web-site that spreads them is, apparently, malicious.
  • Download in bundles with free tools. If you have ever downloaded the unpaid tools, you are familiar with this. You install the program, and in one of the windows you see the proposal to get the browser, the new add-on for it, anti-virus, marvelous media player, and, maybe, a pair of different weird, but very "effective" tools. The installation is already verified, and once you click "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll get 2-3 programs that you do not need, instead of needed one.
  • The straight installation by user. It is very possible, because when some users see a colorful specification of software, they decide that it is very efficient.

The penetration via viral e-mail attachment is also highly popular, but this way is used most of the cases by ransomware and viruses, and not by adware. If you see these words, we believe, that is already eliminated. If you prefer the uninstall in manual manner, you must know how to realize that there is a virus on your computer.

  • The system boots really slowly. The majority of harmful programs, during the installation, tune themselves to run at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. Look at the taskbar, and search for undesired tools.
  • Appearance of ads in all tabs. If the numbers of advertisement increased noticeably - it is, most likely, virus.
  • The dependable tools became slowly and unstable, PC reboots and shuts down by itself.
  • The emergence of the unknown software on the computer. If the tool emerges on your PC without your permit - it is, most likely, dangerous.

If you find one of these red flags in your system - you should do an overall scan with help of antivirus, or manually remove all the unwanted and malicious programs from your system. Don't trust in everything you see on the Net, watch at the status of your machine, and it will anytime be clean and functional.
