How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you need to understand about computer virus: how not to let it enter the PC. Malware use plenty of ways, but we'll divide them on three main groups:

  • Infection through a dangerous web-page. When you open a website, you see a pop-up window with a suggestion to install some software that can seriously help you in some things. The promises of such software are common, they are: the realization of definite tasks in Twitter, automated installation of any update or driver for your gear, showing the newest unpaid media-content such as games, movies and music, the acceleration of Web surfing, search for best deals on the Internet. If on any web-site you see an offer to install the tool with any of these functions - it is really dangerous, and the web-site itself is unsafe.
  • Download in bundles with helpful software. If you have ever installed the free tools, you are familiar with this. You download the software, and during the installation there is a window with the proposal to get the brilliant file manager, browser, the new toolbar for it, antivirus, and, maybe, a pair of different strange, but extremely "efficient" tools. You do not even need to decide anything because the all boxes are already filled, and in some cases, it will be very difficult to abort the undesired installations.
  • Sometimes user downloads hijackers by his own will. Clever written specification of the tool and its brilliant (and nonexistent) functions misleads the user, and he installs malware.

The penetration via e-mail is also very effective, but this method is used most of the cases by ransomware and viruses, and not by advertisement software. We believe that when you're reading this paragraph of the article, will be completely eliminated from your machine. The known AV-programs understand to locate malware, but if you prefer the by-hand removal - you have to know all red flags of infection.

  • The system boots very slowly. The programs that turn on at startup are, in most cases, the cause of long boot. On the taskbar you will see all currently launched programs, and decide which are reliable and which are not.
  • Pop-ups are everywhere. If the numbers of hype increased noticeably - this is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • Critical errors while using tools, shutdown or reboot of a laptop without the user's consent.
  • The emergence of the unknown software in your system. If the software shows up on your machine without your resolution - it's, most likely, undesired.

If you notice one of the described above red flags on your PC - you need to perform a total scan through AV-program, or manually delete all the unwanted and malicious programs from your system. Be careful on the Net, look for the symptoms of virus on the PC, and it will be ready for anything.
