How to protect the computer?

To prevent suchlike issues, you need to understand exactly how got into the workstation. This occurs through three main techniques:

  • Download from an untrusted site. Some websites disseminate the viruses without any precautions. The functions of these programs are common, they are: the realization of definite tasks in Twitter, the acceleration of Web surfing, search for best deals on the Internet, showing the newest unpaid media-content such as games, movies and music, automated installation of any update or driver for your gear. All of these options are already built into the browsers, or is in the list of Windows services, which means - such tools are completely futile, and the site, which propagates them is, very likely, harmful.
  • Download in bundles with helpful software. Almost each toll-free program allows you to install something except the needed tool. You download the tool, and then you see the window with the proposal to install the brilliant file manager, browser, the new extension for it, AV-tool, and God knows what else. The checkboxes are already filled, and as soon as you click "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll get 2-3 unknown tools, besides the needed one.
  • Sometimes user installs harmful software voluntarily. Carefully composed description of the program and its useful (and nonexistent) advantages misguides the customer, and he downloads adware.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute viruses but it is rarely used by adware. We suppose that by the time you're reading these words, will be totally eliminated from the system. If you prefer the deletion in manual mode, you must know how to realize that your PC has a virus.

  • Slow boot of Operating System. The tools that turn on at startup are, very often, the reason of tardy boot. Check the taskbar, and remove the useless software from Control Panel.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the numbers of hype increased dramatically - this is, most likely, virus.
  • Critical faults while using software, shutdown or reboot of a PC without the user's consent.
  • You see many installed tools that you haven't installed. If the program shows up in your system without your consent - it's, most likely, dangerous.

If you find one of these symptoms on your machine - you have to perform a full scan with assistance of antivirus, or manually remove all the useless and dangerous programs from your computer. Be careful on the Net, track the status of your machine, and it will always be clean and functional.
