Similar programs differ from usual malware in that their doing can’t be determined as really viral. may look a good add-on which exhibits you the most worthy offers on the Internet, adds brilliant options to all browsers, and performs another things. Over time, pop-ups and ads are becoming more and when you are trying to uninstall a virus - you can’t do it, because the adware restores itself after deletion. In this entry, we want to tell you what is, how to deal with it, and how to protect your computer from infection in the future.

The dangerous programs which show you pop-ups and interfere to surf the Web can be separated on two classes: adware and hijackers. The first type affects the whole computer, placing hype and other promotional stuff on each new tab in browser and on the desktop. The hijackers act exactly in the browser by changing the results of your search queries, providing incorrect output and redirecting you to harmful web-pages. All of these kinds of programs are supplemented with thorough lists of their functions, and the user decides that they are reliable. However, the longer such programs will live in your system, the more pitiable will be the state of your laptop.

Then, it's the time to capture the browser. Search engine, and homepage are switched. Properties of browser shortcut are switched and the systems which refer to the amount of advertisement are switched off. The browsers nowadays have a function which hides the annoying advertisement, banners, pop-ups and other kinds of hype. The harmful program deactivates these features, and you begin to see that the amount of advertising in all browsers is extremely increased. Moreover that you are getting all the hype on the Net, regardless of whether they are reliable or not, exhibits you obviously viral commercial content. Sometimes, customers just can’t surf the Internet, because when they try to visit the specified website, malicious software sends him to the suspicious one. Why virus does this? The point of these actions is to make the user to click on the links suggested by malware. Such links often lead to third-grade web-sites providing substandard goods, or services. Such web-pages just aren't visited by anyone besides their proprietors, and the only chance for them is to lure users to the web-site with the help of deception. Any endeavor to download some stuff from suchlike web-page will summon serious problems. As you can see, is harmless in itself, but it allows the man to do things which will call problems.

How to protect the computer?

To prevent similar problems in the future, you have to understand closely in which way got on your computer. This happens via three basic manners:

  • Infection through a dangerous web-page. There are web-sites, which disseminate the hijackers and aren't even hiding it. These programs have the bounded list of functions: 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, search for the latest toll-free content such as movies, games and music, the improvement of Net browsing. If on the web-page you find a suggestion to install the tool with these features - it is really harmful, and the site itself is unreliable.
  • Unwanted programs may be attached to other software. Literally every toll-free program suggests you to install something aside from the tool that you need. You install the program, and in one of the windows you see the proposal to get the anti-virus, super-useful file manager, browser, the new toolbar for it, and, maybe, some another strange, but extremely "useful" tools. The checkboxes are already filled, and once you click "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll earn 4-5 tools that you do not need, instead of needed one.
  • The straight download by user. Clever composed specification of the software and its brilliant (and nonexistent) advantages misguides the user, and he downloads the hijacker.

The e-mails are also often used, to spread malware but it is rarely used by adware. We suppose that by the time you're reading this paragraph of the guide, will be totally eliminated from the system. If you choose the manual removal, you should know how to understand that there is malware on your laptop.

  • Slow launch of OS. The processes that turn on at startup are, in most cases, the reason of slow boot. Check the taskbar, and search for harmful software.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the numbers of advertising has grown up noticeably - this is, most likely, virus.
  • The reliable tools runs unstable and slow, machine restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • The appearance of the strange tools in your system. If the tool emerges on the machine without your consent - it is, most likely, dangerous.

If you see one of the mentioned above symptoms in your system - you need to make a total scan with assistance of antivirus, or manually delete all the unwanted and malicious programs from your computer. Don't believe in everything you see on the Internet, look at the condition of your PC, and it will always be fast and effective.
