How to protect the computer?

To prevent penetration by such type of viruses, you must know for sure how got onto your system. This might happen via three basic ways:

  • Infection through a dangerous web-page. When you open a web-site, you see a pop-up window with a suggestion to install brilliant tools, which would greatly help you in something. The functions of such programs 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, the fulfillment of certain tasks in the social networks, showing the newest unpaid media-content such as movies, music and games. If on the website you receive a suggestion to download the software with similar functions - it is very dangerous, and the site itself is unsafe.
  • Viruses may be attached to good tools. If you often use the unpaid tools, you are familiar with this. You download the program, and then you see the window with the suggestion to install the super-useful file manager, antivirus, browser, the additional toolbar for it, and, maybe, a pair of different weird, but extremely "efficient" tools. There's no need to make a decision because the all fields are already filled, and in most cases, it is very difficult to cancel the undesired installations.
  • The straight download by user. Smart composed description of the software and its brilliant (and nonexistent) features misguides the customer, and he sets up adware.

The penetration via viral e-mail attachment is also highly effective, but this way is used mostly by ransomware and viruses, and not by adware. We believe that if you're reading this part of the guide, will be already eliminated from your system. If you prefer the manual removal, you should know how to realize that your workstation has malware.

  • Slow launch of OS. The majority of adware, during the installation, tune themselves to turn on at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. On the taskbar you will see all currently working tools, and choose the ones that are useful and which aren't.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the amount of advertisement increased dramatically - it is, most likely, virus.
  • The good tools functions slowly and unstable, computer restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • You see lots of software which you've never seen before. If the program appears in your system without your consent - it's, nothing else than the virus.

Any of these red flags shows the virus threat, and the early reaction is a chance to prevent the damage. Be careful on the Net, look at the condition of your machine, and it will anytime be clean and functional.
