How to protect the computer?

To prevent similar issues, you must know for sure how got into the machine. This occurs through three basic techniques:

  • Download from a malicious website. There are web-pages, which spread the hijackers and they don't even try to hide it. The functions of such tools are common, they are: automated installation of any update or driver for your gear, showing the newest unpaid media-content such as games, movies and music, the realization of definite tasks in Twitter, search for best deals on the Internet, the acceleration of Web surfing. Every such feature is already built into the browsers, or present in the Windows tools list, so, it means that such programs are just needless, and the web-site that distributes them is, very likely, malicious.
  • Adware may be bundled with other software. If you often use the unpaid programs, you know what we are talking about. You download the software, and then you see the window with the confirmation on the installation of the anti-viral program, browser, the new toolbar for it, marvelous file manager, and, maybe, few another unknown, but extremely "effective" tools. The installation is already confirmed, and once you click "OK", the installation starts, and you’ll get 4-5 programs that you do not need, besides the one that you wish to have.
  • The direct download by user. It is highly possible, because when the users read an attractive specification of the tool, they decide that it is very effective.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute viruses but it is rarely used by advertising programs. If you read these words, we suppose, that is already uninstalled. If you prefer the uninstall in manual manner, you should know how to understand that your workstation has malware.

  • Operating System boots extremely slowly. Most of the adware, during the installation, tune themselves to run at startup, and it doesn't matter if this software is used once in 6 months - it will launch every day and take your time and CPU power. On the taskbar you can see all currently launched programs, and choose the ones that are helpful and which aren't.
  • Ads are everywhere. If the numbers of advertisement has grown up notably - that is, most likely, the undesired software.
  • Critical faults while using software, restart or shutdown of a laptop without the user's permit.
  • The appearance of the suspicious tools on your machine. If the program emerges on your machine without your permit - it's, nothing else than the virus.

If you find one of the described above symptoms in your system - you have to do a full scan with use of removal software, or manually remove all the useless and harmful software from your system. Be watchful on the Web, watch for the symptoms of malware on your computer, and it will anytime be clean and effective.
