How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such sort of dangerous programs in the future, you have to know for sure in which way got onto your system. Adware use a lot of ways, but we'll assort them on three basic groups:

  • Download from a dangerous site. Some web-sites propagate the viruses without any precautions. Suchlike programs have the bounded list of advantages: search for advantageous offers on the Net, search for the latest toll-free content such as movies, games and music, automatic installation of every driver or update for your hardware, the improvement of Net browsing, the execution of some actions in the social networks. Any such feature is already integrated into the browsers, or present in the list of Windows services, so, it means that these programs are absolutely needless, and the website that spreads them is, very likely, harmful.
  • Malicious software might be attached to helpful programs. If you have ever installed the toll-free programs, you know what that means. You download the tool, and then you see the window with the proposal of the installation of the removal program, browser, the additional extension for it, brilliant media player, and God knows what else. There's no need to decide anything because the all boxes are already filled, and in some cases, it is very complicated to decline the installation of undesired software.
  • The direct installation by user. It is highly possible, because when some users read an attractive specification of the tool, they think that it is very effective.

The infection via e-mail is also very effective, but this manner is used most of the times by ransomware and viruses, and not by advertisement software. If you read this paragraph, we believe, that is already removed. The known anti-viral tools know how to detect malware, but if you prefer the disposal in manual mode - you should know all red flags of virus.

  • OS boots really slowly. The programs that turn on at startup are, most often, the cause of long boot. On the taskbar you can see all currently working programs, and choose the ones that are reliable and which aren't.
  • Appearance of ads in all tabs. If the quantity of advertising increased notably - this is, most likely, the undesired software.
  • The reliable tools became unstable and slow, machine restarts and turns off by itself.
  • You see a lot of installed tools which you've never seen before. If the software emerges on the machine without your resolution - it's, most likely, malicious.

Any of these symptoms informs about the malware threat, and the timely reaction is a chance to avoid the harm. Be watchful on the Internet, follow the condition of your computer, and it will be ready for anything.
