How to protect the computer?

To prevent similar problems, you should realize precisely in which way got into the laptop. This happens via three main ways:

  • Infection through a dangerous web-site. There are websites that propagate the adware and they don't even try to hide it. These programs have the limited list of features: the execution of specific actions in Facebook, providing the latest free content such as games, music and movies, the enhancement of Internet browsing, automatic download of all drivers and updates for your devices, showing the information about beneficial discounts on the Web. Each such feature is already integrated into the browsers, or is in the list of Windows services, so, it means that these tools are completely useless, and the site that propagates them is, apparently, infected.
  • Download in bundles with other tools. If you have ever used the unpaid tools, you are familiar with this. You download the program, and in one of the windows you see the suggestion of the installation of the antivirus, browser, the new add-on for it, brilliant file manager, and, maybe, few another weird, but extremely "useful" tools. There's no need to make a decision because the all boxes are already filled, and in some cases, it is really difficult to cancel the undesired installations.
  • The straight installation by user. It is also possible, because when the customers read a tempting specification of software, they believe that it is very effective.

The infection via viral e-mail attachment is also extremely effective, but this way is used most of the cases by malware and ransomware, and not by adware. If you see these words, we believe, that adware is already removed. If you choose the by-hand removal, you must know how to determine that there is malware on your workstation.

  • Slow loading of Windows. The tools that turn on at startup are, very often, the reason of tardy boot. Look at the taskbar, and delete the useless software from Control Panel.
  • Appearance of advertising in on every website. If the numbers of advertisement increased notably - it is, most likely, virus.
  • The good tools functions slowly and unstable, machine reboots and shuts down by itself.
  • The appearance of the unknown tools in the system. If the tool appears on your computer without your permission - it's, most likely, unwanted.

If you find one of these symptoms on your machine - you have to make an overall scan with assistance of antivirus, or manually remove all the useless and malicious tools from your PC. Be careful on the Web, look at the state of your computer, and it will always be fast and effective.
