Extensions for advertisement activities are a distinct series of viruses, called adware and hijackers. The first ones affect the whole system, putting links and advertising on each new tab in browser and on the desktop. The hijackers act exclusively in the browsers by substituting the results of your searches, providing incorrect output and sending you to infected web-sites. All of these kinds of programs are accompanied with thorough lists of their features, and the user decides that they are reliable.

The browsers now have a service which permits to hide the annoying ads, pop-ups, banners and other sorts of hype. The undesired program switches these services off, and you see that the amount of advertising in the browser is extremely high. Besides the fact that you see all the hype of the Internet, doesn't matter are they worthy or not, shows you markedly harmful hype. In rare cases, users just can’t browse the Web, because when they try to view some web-site, adware sends him to the unwanted one. For what is this done? The essence of these actions is to force the user to click on the links suggested by the hijacker. Those links frequently lead to third-grade web-pages which provide substandard goods, or services. These web-sites are simply not visited by anyone besides their developers, and the only chance for them is to lure visitors to the web-page with use of such tricks. There's no need to precise that any operation or download on the web-site, provided you by virus, can cause sad effects, such as - getting another hijacker.

How to protect the computer?

To prevent similar issues, you need to realize exactly how got onto your machine. This occurs through three main manners:

  • Download from an untrusted web-page. There are web-sites that disseminate the adware and aren't even hiding it. The promises of suchlike programs are ordinary, they are: showing the information about beneficial discounts on the Web, automatic download of all drivers and updates for your devices, the enhancement of Internet browsing, the execution of specific actions in Facebook, providing the latest free content such as games, music and movies. Every such option is already built into the browsers, or is in the list of Windows services, so, it means that such programs are just futile, and the site that distributes them is, most likely, harmful.
  • Download in bundles with good software. If you often use the unpaid tools, you know what we are talking about. You download the tool, and then you see the window with the suggestion to install the anti-virus, miraculous media player, browser, the additional toolbar for it, and God knows what else. The checkboxes are already filled, and if you press "OK", the installation starts, and you’ll get 4-5 tools that you do not need, instead of one that you wish to use.
  • In some cases user downloads adware voluntarily. Carefully composed description of the software and its useful (and nonexistent) functions misinforms the customer, and he downloads the virus.

The infection via e-mail is also highly effective, but this way is used mostly by ransomware and viruses, and not by advertisement software. We suppose that by the time you're reading this part of the article, will be fully deleted from the workstation. The reputable anti-viral programs know how to recognize malware, but if you prefer the deletion in manual mode - you should know all signs of infection.

  • Slow boot of Windows. The processes that run at startup are, in most cases, the reason of slow boot. On the taskbar you can see all currently working programs, and choose which are useful and which are not.
  • Advertisement are everywhere. If the amount of advertising has grown up dramatically - it is, most likely, virus.
  • Critical failures while using software, shutdown or reboot of a PC without your resolution.
  • The emergence of the unknown tools in your system. If the program emerges on your PC without your consent - it is, nothing else than the adware.

If you find one of these symptoms in your system - you have to do a total scan through removal program, or manually remove all the undesired and harmful software from your machine. Be careful on the Web, look at the state of your PC, and it will be ready for any job.
