How to protect the computer?

To prevent penetration by such adware in the future, you have to know for sure in which way got into your computer. This occurs through three main manners:

  • Infection through an untrusted site. There are web-pages, which disseminate the adware and aren't even hiding it. The promises of these software are usual, they are: automated installation of all updates and drivers for your devices, the performance of specific tasks in Facebook, 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. If on some web-site you find a suggestion to install the program with similar features - it is absolutely malicious, and the web-page itself is unsafe.
  • Viruses can be bundled with reliable tools. Literally each free program suggests you to get something besides the needed tool. You install the program, and in one of the windows you see the proposal of the installation of the browser, the additional extension for it, antivirus, miraculous file manager, and, maybe, a pair of another unknown, but highly "useful" tools. The installation is already confirmed, and if you press "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll get 3-4 suspicious tools, except the one that you would like to get.
  • The direct download by user. Smart composed specification of the software and its brilliant (and nonexistent) features misleads the user, and he sets up malware.

The e-mails are also often used, to spread viruses but the adware almost don't use it. If you see these words, we think, that adware is already uninstalled. The dependable anti-viruses understand to locate a virus, but if you prefer the hand deletion - you should know all symptoms of infection.

  • Slow boot of Operating System. The programs that turn on at startup are, most often, the reason of long boot. At the taskbar you can see all currently working tools, and choose which are useful and which aren't.
  • Banners are everywhere. If the amount of advertisement increased dramatically - it is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • Critical failures when using programs, reboot or shutdown of a laptop without the user's resolution.
  • You notice a lot of software that you haven't installed. If the program appears in your system without your resolution - it is, nothing else than the virus.

If you notice one of these red flags in your system - you need to do a full scan through AV-software, or manually remove all the unwanted and malicious programs from your computer. Be watchful on the Net, watch for the symptoms of malware on your PC, and it will be ready for any work.
