How to protect the computer?

There is one simple thing that you need to understand about any adware: how not to let it enter the system. This might occur through three main methods:

  • Download from a suspicious web-site. Some web-pages spread the viruses and they don't even try to hide it. The features of suchlike programs are ordinary, they are: the execution of some actions in the social networks, search for advantageous offers on the Net, automatic installation of every driver or update for your hardware, search for the latest toll-free content such as movies, games and music, the improvement of Net browsing. Each such function is already built into the browsers, or is in the list of Windows services, which means - these software are simply futile, and the web-page, which disseminates them is, very likely, dangerous.
  • Viruses might be bundled with reliable programs. If you often use the free programs, you are familiar with this. You install the tool, and in one of the windows you see the proposal to get the browser, the additional extension for it, anti-virus, super-useful media player, and God knows what else. The checkboxes are already filled, and as soon as you press "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll install 4-5 suspicious tools, except the one that you want to get.
  • In some cases user installs viruses by his own will. It is very possible, because when the users see a tempting description of software, they think that it is really effective.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute malware but the adware almost don't use it. If you see this part, we suppose, that adware is already deleted. If you prefer the manual deletion, you must know how to realize that your system has a virus.

  • Slow loading of OS. The processes that launch at startup are, in most cases, the reason of long boot. Look at the taskbar, and uninstall the useless tools from Control Panel.
  • Appearance of advertising in all tabs. If the quantity of advertising has grown up notably - it is, most likely, virus.
  • The good programs runs unstable and slow, computer restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • The appearance of the strange programs in the system. If the software appears on the PC without your permit - it is, nothing else than the virus.

If you see one of the described above symptoms in your system - you have to do a full scan with use of anti-virus, or manually remove all the undesired and harmful software from your machine. Be careful on the Internet, watch at the condition of your computer, and it will be ready for any job.
