Home-page and search engine are altered. Browser shortcut properties are altered and the systems which are responsible for the amount of hype are switched off. All good browsers nowadays have a feature that allows to hide the banners, undesired advertising, pop-ups and other types of hype. turns these features off, and you understand that the amount of advertisement in the browser is extremely increased. In addition, to that the quantity of advertisement has grown up notably, its quality became really low.

How to protect the computer?

To prevent penetration by such kind of viruses in the future, you should understand closely in which way got on your laptop. Malware use a lot of ways, but we'll divide them on three basic groups:

  • Infection through a suspicious web-page. There are web-pages that spread the malicious software without any precautions. Suchlike programs have the limited list of functions: the acceleration of Net browsing, the performance of specific tasks in Facebook, providing the latest free media-content such as music, movies and games, automated installation of all updates and drivers for your devices, search for most profitable discounts on the Web. If on any web-site you find a suggestion to download the program with similar features - it is really dangerous, and the web-site itself is suspicious.
  • Malware may be attached to free programs. If you often use the unpaid tools, you know what we are talking about. You install the program, and in one of the windows you see the suggestion to install the miraculous media player, browser, the new add-on for it, antivirus, and God knows what else. The checkboxes are already filled, and once you click "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll get 3-4 programs that you do not need, besides the one that you want to have.
  • The direct download by user. It is highly possible, because when some users see a tempting specification of the tool, they decide that it is highly efficient.

The penetration via e-mail is also extremely popular, but this technique is used mostly by malware and ransomware, and not by advertisement software. If you see these words, we believe, that adware is already eliminated. If you choose the removal in manual manner, you need to know how to determine that your laptop has malware.

  • OS boots very slowly. The majority of malware, during the installation, tune themselves to launch at startup, and it doesn't matter if this tool is used once a year - it will start daily and take your time and CPU resources. At the taskbar you will see all currently launched tools, and decide which are useful and which are not.
  • Ads are everywhere. If the amount of advertisement increased dramatically - it is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • The reputable software functions slowly and unstable, computer reboots and shuts down by itself.
  • You notice a lot of installed tools that you haven't installed. If the software emerges on the machine without your permission - it's, most likely, undesired.

If you notice one of these red flags on your machine - you should do a full scan through removal software, or manually uninstall all the useless and dangerous programs from your computer. Be cautious on the Net, look for the symptoms of infection on your PC, and it will anytime be clean and functional.
