How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you need to know about computer virus: how not to let it get into your system. Viruses use plenty of ways, but we'll assort them on three main groups:

  • Infection through a malicious web-page. Some web-pages spread the malware and aren't even hiding it. Suchlike tools have the bounded list of features: automatic installation of every driver or update for your hardware, search for the latest toll-free content such as movies, games and music, the execution of some actions in the social networks, the improvement of Net browsing, search for advantageous offers on the Net. Any such option is already integrated into the browsers, or is in the Windows tools list, so, it means that such software are just needless, and the site that spreads them is, very likely, unsafe.
  • Download in bundles with worthy programs. Almost every toll-free program proposes you to install something besides the tool that you need. You install the program, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the suggestion of the installation of the special tool, browser, the new extension for it, marvelous file manager, and God knows what else. The installation is already confirmed, and as soon as you press "OK", the installation starts, and you’ll get 4-5 tools that you do not need, except the one that you wish to have.
  • In some cases user downloads undesired software by his own will. It is highly possible, because when some users read an alluring specification of the program, they believe that it is highly useful.

The infection via e-mail is also extremely efficient, but this technique is used mostly by malware and ransomware, and not by advertisement software. If you came to these words, we believe, that hijacker is already deleted. If you choose the hand removal, you must know how to understand that there is malware on your workstation.

  • Slow boot of OS. The tools that run at startup are, most often, the cause of tardy boot. Check the taskbar, and uninstall the suspicious tools from Control Panel.
  • Appearance of ads in all tabs. If the amount of hype has grown up noticeably - it is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • Critical faults when using software, reboot or shutdown of a laptop without the user's resolution.
  • You notice a lot of installed tools that you've never seen before. If the software emerges in the system without your resolution - it's, nothing else than the virus.

If you notice one of these symptoms in your system - you have to make a full scan with assistance of anti-virus, or manually remove all the unwanted and dangerous software from your system. Be careful on the Net, watch at the condition of your machine, and it will be ready for anything.
