How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you need to know about any adware: how not to let it enter the PC. This happens through three basic techniques:

  • Infection through an untrusted website. Some websites propagate the adware without any precautions. These tools have the confined list of advantages: showing the newest unpaid media-content such as games, movies and music, the realization of definite tasks in Twitter, the acceleration of Web surfing, automated installation of any update or driver for your gear, search for best deals on the Internet. All of these features are already integrated into the browsers, or present in the operating system tools list, so, it means that these programs are completely worthless, and the website that disseminates them is, apparently, dangerous.
  • Download in the package with free programs. If you often use the free software, you understand what we are talking about. You install the program, and then you see the window with the suggestion to install the anti-virus, browser, the additional extension for it, marvelous media player, and, maybe, a pair of different unknown, but very "useful" tools. The installation is already confirmed, and once you press "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll earn few tools that you do not need, except the one that you want to get.
  • In some cases user downloads adware by his own will. Carefully composed specification of the program and its marvelous (and nonexistent) functions deludes the customer, and he downloads adware.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread viruses but the advertising programs almost don't use it. If you see this part, we believe, that hijacker is already gone. The well anti-viruses know how to detect malware, but if you prefer the uninstall in manual manner - you must know all red flags of infection.

  • Slow boot of OS. The processes that run at startup are, most often, the cause of tardy boot. Check the taskbar, and uninstall the unwanted software from Control Panel.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the quantity of advertising increased notably - that is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • The reliable software became unstable and slow, PC reboots and shuts down by itself.
  • You see lots of programs which you've never seen before. If the software shows up on your PC without your permission - it is, most likely, harmful.

If you notice one of these symptoms on your machine - you need to perform a total scan through AV-program, or manually remove all the unwanted and malicious tools from your system. Be cautious on the Internet, look for the symptoms of virus on the machine, and it will be ready for any work.
