How to protect the computer?

To prevent these issues, you should realize exactly how got into the workstation. This can happen through three basic ways:

  • Infection through a suspicious web-page. There are websites, which disseminate the malware and aren't even hiding it. These tools have the confined list of functions: search for the latest toll-free content such as movies, games and music, the improvement of Net browsing, search for advantageous offers on the Net, automatic installation of every driver or update for your hardware, the execution of some actions in the social networks. All of these options are already built into the browsers, or is in the operating system tools list, which means - such software are simply worthless, and the web-site, which disseminates them is, apparently, dangerous.
  • Download in the package with worthy software. Almost each toll-free tool allows you to get something besides the needed tool. You install the program, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the suggestion of the installation of the browser, the additional extension for it, removal program, brilliant media player, and, maybe, a pair of different weird, but very "efficient" tools. You do not even need to make a decision because the installation has already been confirmed, and in most cases, it will be really hard to abort the undesired installations.
  • Sometimes user downloads hijackers by his own will. Smart composed description of the software and its magnificent (and nonexistent) advantages deceives the customer, and he downloads the virus.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute undesired programs but it is rarely used by hijackers. We believe that when you're reading this paragraph of the guide, will be completely removed from the computer. If you prefer the disposal in manual manner, you should know how to realize that there is malware on your PC.

  • Slow boot of Operating System. The processes that run at startup are, in most cases, the reason of slow boot. Inspect the taskbar, and search for useless tools.
  • Banners are everywhere. If the numbers of ads has grown up noticeably - it is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • The dependable software runs slowly and unstable, computer reboots and shuts down by itself.
  • You notice many programs that you haven't installed. If the tool shows up in the system without your consent - it's, nothing else than the adware.

If you see one of the mentioned above red flags on your machine - you have to perform an overall scan with use of removal software, or manually get rid of all the unwanted and dangerous tools from your system. Be careful on the Net, look at the state of your PC, and it will be ready for any job.
