Advantages of different removal methods

 

How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such virus, you have to understand precisely how Lokvel.ru got onto the PC. This can occur via three main techniques:

  • Download from a malicious web-site. There are websites, which propagate the viruses and aren't even hiding it. Such tools have the bounded list of advantages: automated installation of any update or driver for your gear, search for best deals on the Internet, the acceleration of Web surfing, the realization of definite tasks in Twitter, showing the newest unpaid media-content such as games, movies and music. All of these options are already integrated into the browsers, or is in the list of Windows services, so, it means that such software are simply futile, and the web-site that distributes them is, apparently, harmful.
  • Harmful programs can be attached to good programs. Practically every toll-free program suggests you to install something except the needed tool. You install the program, and then you see the window with the confirmation on the installation of the brilliant file manager, antivirus, browser, the new toolbar for it, and God knows what else. The installation is already verified, and if you click "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll install 3-4 suspicious tools, instead of one that you would like to use.
  • The straight download by user. It is also possible, because when the people read an attractive description of the program, they believe that it is highly useful.

The e-mails are used very often, to distribute malware but the advertising programs almost don't use it. If you came to this part, we believe, that hijacker is gone for good. If you prefer the deletion in manual mode, you should know how to realize that your laptop has malware.

  • Slow loading of Operating System. The majority of viruses, during the installation, tune themselves to launch at startup, and it doesn't matter if this tool is used once in 6 months - it will start every day and take your time and CPU resources. Check the taskbar, and search for unwanted software.
  • Appearance of ads in the browser. If the quantity of advertisement has grown up dramatically - that is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • The reputable software became slowly and unstable, machine reboots and turns off by itself.
  • You notice many programs which you've never seen before. If the program appears in your system without your permit - it is, nothing else than the adware.

Any of these red flags shows the virus threat, and if you react in time - you will prevent the harm. Don't believe in everything you see on the Web, follow the state of your PC, and it will always be clean and effective.
