How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you must understand about computer virus: how not to let it get in your computer. This occurs via three main techniques:

  • Download from an untrusted website. Some web-pages disseminate the malware and aren't even hiding it. The features of such software are usual, they are: the enhancement of Web surfing, acting download of all drivers and updates for your gear, providing the information about best deals on the Internet, showing the newest unpaid media-content such as movies, music and games, the fulfillment of certain tasks in the social networks. If on the site you receive a suggestion to download the tool with similar features - it is really malicious, and the website itself is unsafe.
  • Adware might be bundled with reliable programs. If you have ever used the free tools, you know what we are talking about. You install the tool, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the proposal of the installation of the browser, the additional extension for it, brilliant file manager, anti-virus, and, maybe, few different weird, but extremely "useful" tools. The checkboxes are already filled, and as soon as you click "OK", the installation starts, and you’ll earn 4-5 tools that you do not need, except the needed one.
  • Sometimes user downloads harmful programs by his own will. It is also possible, because when the customers see an attractive description of the program, they think that it is really effective.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute viruses but the adware almost don't use it. If you read these words, we think, that adware is gone for good. The good antiviruses understand to detect malware, but if you prefer the manual disposal - you must know all signs of infection.

  • The system boots extremely slowly. The majority of viruses, during the installation, tune themselves to launch at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. At the taskbar you can see all currently working tools, and choose which are good and which are not.
  • Appearance of advertising in all tabs. If the amount of advertising increased dramatically - it is, most likely, the undesired software.
  • The good programs functions slowly and unstable, machine reboots and turns off by itself.
  • You notice lots of software which you haven't installed. If the program appears on the PC without your permission - it is, most likely, undesired.

If you notice one of these red flags on your PC - you should make an overall scan with help of antivirus, or manually uninstall all the unwanted and dangerous software from your PC. Don't believe in everything you see on the Internet, watch at the status of your machine, and it will always be clean and efficient.
