How to protect the computer?

To prevent similar issues, you must know for sure in which way got onto the PC. This happens via three main manners:

  • Download from a dangerous web-page. When you're on a web-page, you are shown a confirmation to download some programs that can seriously support you in something. Such tools have the confined list of functions: search for most profitable discounts on the Web, providing the latest free media-content such as music, movies and games, the acceleration of Net browsing, the performance of specific tasks in Facebook, automated installation of all updates and drivers for your devices. If on the web-site you find an offer to install the program with any of these functions - it is very malicious, and the website itself is unsafe.
  • Download in bundles with other programs. Practically each free tool proposes you to get something besides the needed tool. You download the program, and in one of the windows you see the proposal to install the removal software, marvelous file manager, browser, the additional extension for it, and, maybe, a pair of another weird, but extremely "useful" tools. There's no need to decide anything because the all fields are already checked, and in some cases, it will be really hard to abort the installation of unwanted programs.
  • The direct download by user. It is very possible, because when some people see an alluring specification of the program, they believe that it is very useful.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread malicious programs but the adware almost don't use it. We suppose that when you're reading these words, will be already uninstalled from your machine. The good AV-tools know how to recognize malware, but if you prefer the hand deletion - you should know all signs of virus.

  • The system boots really slowly. The majority of malicious programs, during the installation, tune themselves to launch at startup, and it doesn't matter if this software is used once a year - it will start every day and take your time and CPU resources. On the taskbar you will see all currently launched programs, and choose which are good and which aren't.
  • Advertisement are everywhere. If the numbers of ads has grown up noticeably - it is, most likely, the undesired software.
  • The good tools runs slowly and unstable, PC reboots and shuts down by itself.
  • You see lots of installed tools which you've never seen before. If the program emerges on the PC without your consent - it's, most likely, undesired.

Every of these symptoms shows the virus threat, and if you react in time - you will avoid the damage. Don't trust in everything you see on the Internet, look for the symptoms of malware on your computer, and it will be ready for anything.
