How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you need to know about computer virus: how not to let it enter the computer. This can happen via three basic ways:

  • Download from a suspicious site. When you are on a website, you see a confirmation to install some programs, which can greatly support you in something. The promises of such software are common, they are: search for the latest toll-free content such as movies, games and music, the execution of some actions in the social networks, automatic installation of every driver or update for your hardware, search for advantageous offers on the Net, the improvement of Net browsing. Every such feature is already built into the browsers, or present in the list of Windows services, which means - such tools are completely worthless, and the web-page that distributes them is, apparently, infected.
  • Download in the package with reliable programs. If you have ever installed the free programs, you are familiar with this. You install the software, and in one of the windows you see the suggestion of the installation of the browser, the additional add-on for it, special software, miraculous media player, and God knows what else. You do not even need to make a decision because the all boxes are already checked, and in some cases, it will be very complicated to decline the installation of suspicious software.
  • In some cases user downloads viruses voluntarily. Carefully written description of the product and its wonderful (and nonexistent) features deceives the customer, and he downloads malware.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread malware but it is rarely used by hijackers. We believe that if you're reading these words, Searchitdown.com will be fully uninstalled from the computer. If you prefer the deletion in manual manner, you need to know how to determine that your machine has malware.

  • OS boots very slowly. The tools that turn on at startup are, very often, the reason of tardy boot. Look at the taskbar, and remove the unwanted software from Control Panel.
  • Pop-ups are everywhere. If the numbers of advertisement has grown up notably - it is, most likely, virus.
  • The reputable tools runs slowly and unstable, machine restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • The emergence of the unknown software on the machine. If the tool appears in your system without your consent - it is, nothing else than the virus.

Any of these red flags indicates the malware threat, and the proper reaction is a chance to prevent the harm. Be careful on the Internet, watch at the condition of your computer, and it will anytime be clean and functional.
