How to protect the computer?

To prevent these problems in the future, you need to know for sure how got on the workstation. This occurs via three basic ways:

  • Infection through an untrusted web-page. When you are on a web-site, you are shown a pop-up window with an offer to install brilliant tools, which would seriously assist you in some cases. These tools have the limited list of functions: the enhancement of Internet browsing, the execution of specific actions in Facebook, showing the information about beneficial discounts on the Web, providing the latest free content such as games, music and movies, automatic download of all drivers and updates for your devices. Any such function is already built into the browsers, or is in the operating system tools list, which means - such software are just needless, and the site that disseminates them is, apparently, malicious.
  • Download in the package with free software. Literally every free program proposes you to get something except the tool that you wish. You install the program, and during the installation there is a window with the proposal of the installation of the anti-viral program, super-useful media player, browser, the additional toolbar for it, and God knows what else. There's no need to make a decision because the all boxes are already checked, and in some cases, it is really difficult to cancel the installation of unwanted software.
  • The straight installation by user. Carefully composed description of the program and its marvelous (and nonexistent) advantages misleads the user, and he downloads adware.

The penetration via viral e-mail attachment is also highly popular, but this technique is used most of the cases by ransomware and viruses, and not by adware. We hope that when you're reading this part of the article, will be completely deleted from your workstation. If you prefer the uninstall in manual manner, you must know how to determine that your workstation has a virus.

  • Windows boots extremely slowly. The processes that launch at startup are, very often, the cause of tardy boot. At the taskbar you will see all currently launched programs, and decide which are helpful and which are not.
  • Advertisement are everywhere. If the numbers of ads has grown up notably - this is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • Critical errors when using software, restart or shutdown of a workstation without the user's consent.
  • You see a lot of programs which you haven't installed. If the tool emerges on your computer without your resolution - it's, nothing else than the adware.

If you see one of these symptoms on your computer - you have to make an overall scan through anti-virus, or manually get rid of all the undesired and harmful software from your machine. Be cautious on the Internet, look for the symptoms of malware on your PC, and it will always be clean and functional.
