Advantages of different removal methods

 

How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such malware, you have to know precisely how Start-pagesearch.com got onto your workstation. Malware use plenty of ways, but they all can be divided on three main groups:

  • Infection through a dangerous website. When you open a web-page, you see a pop-up window with an invitation to install miraculous programs, which can greatly support you in some cases. These tools have the bounded list of advantages: showing the newest unpaid media-content such as games, movies and music, the realization of definite tasks in Twitter, automated installation of any update or driver for your gear, search for best deals on the Internet, the acceleration of Web surfing. All of these features are already integrated into the browsers, or is in the list of Windows services, so, it means that these programs are simply worthless, and the website that propagates them is, most likely, infected.
  • Download in bundles with reliable programs. If you have ever installed the toll-free tools, you are familiar with this. You install the tool, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the confirmation on the installation of the special program, miraculous media player, browser, the additional toolbar for it, and God knows what else. You do not even need to make a decision because the installation has already been confirmed, and in some cases, it will be very difficult to abort the installation of unwanted software.
  • The direct download by user. Smart written description of the tool and its marvelous (and nonexistent) functions deludes the customer, and he downloads adware.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread malware but it is rarely used by adware. We believe that by the time you're reading this paragraph of the guide, Start-pagesearch.com will be totally removed from your system. The known anti-viruses understand to locate malware, but if you prefer the deletion in manual manner - you must know all signs of virus.

  • Slow loading of Operating System. The processes that turn on at startup are, very often, the cause of long boot. At the taskbar you can see all currently launched programs, and decide which are useful and which aren't.
  • Appearance of advertisement in the browser. If the amount of advertising has grown up noticeably - it is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • The dependable programs functions slowly and unstable, computer restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • You notice many installed tools that you've never seen before. If the software appears on the PC without your consent - it's, nothing else than the adware.

If you notice one of these symptoms in your system - you need to make an overall scan with assistance of anti-viral software, or manually delete all the useless and harmful software from your machine. Don't believe in everything you see on the Net, watch at the state of your machine, and it will anytime be fast and efficient.
