The viruses which show you pop-ups and interfere to use the Internet can be divided on two types: adware and hijackers. Adware attack the entire computer, placing pop-ups and advertisements on each new tab in browser and on the desktop. The hijackers act exclusively in the browser by manipulating the search results, providing improper output and sending you to viral websites.

Properties of browser shortcut are varied and the programs which refer to the quantity of advertising are switched off. Most browsers now have a service which hides the undesired advertisement, banners, pop-ups and other kinds of hype. The virus deactivates these services, and you understand that the quantity of advertisement in the browser is dramatically high. In addition, to that the quantity of advertising has grown up notably, its quality became really low. In rare cases, customers simply can’t use the Net, because when they try to view the specified web-page, virus sends him to the infected one. Why virus does this? The meaning of such doing is to make you to click on the links shown by the hijacker. Such links frequently lead to third-class sites that suggest low-quality products, or services. Those web-sites just aren't visited by anyone besides their proprietors, and the only chance for them is to lure customers to the web-site with use of deception. It is not necessary to precise that any action or load on the site, shown you by hijacker, can call bad effects, for instance - getting another malware.

Advantages of different removal methods


How to protect the computer?

There is one simple thing that you need to understand about PC virus: how not to let it get inside the system. This occurs through three basic manners:

  • Infection through a suspicious website. When you open a website, you see a pop-up window with a suggestion to download certain software that would greatly help you in some things. Such programs have the limited list of functions: showing the information about beneficial discounts on the Web, the execution of specific actions in Facebook, providing the latest free content such as games, music and movies, automatic download of all drivers and updates for your devices, the enhancement of Internet browsing. Every such function is already built into the browsers, or is in the list of Windows services, which means - these programs are absolutely needless, and the site that spreads them is, apparently, harmful.
  • Download in the package with good tools. Literally every toll-free software suggests you to install something aside from the needed tool. You install the program, and in one of the windows you see the confirmation on the installation of the super-useful media player, AV-software, browser, the additional extension for it, and, maybe, few another strange, but extremely "effective" tools. The checkboxes are already filled, and as soon as you click "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll install few tools that you do not need, besides the one that you wish to install.
  • In some cases user installs malicious software voluntarily. It is very possible, because when the customers see a colorful specification of the program, they believe that it is highly efficient.

The penetration via viral e-mail attachment is also very popular, but this way is used mostly by malware and ransomware, and not by adware. If you came to this paragraph, we believe, that adware is already uninstalled. The known anti-viral software know how to detect malware, but if you prefer the by-hand deletion - you need to know all red flags of infection.

  • Slow launch of Windows. The programs that run at startup are, very often, the cause of tardy boot. Look at the taskbar, and search for harmful software.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the quantity of advertising has grown up notably - it is, most likely, virus.
  • The reputable tools runs slowly and unstable, PC restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • You see lots of software that you haven't installed. If the program shows up on your PC without your resolution - it is, nothing else than the virus.

Any of these symptoms shows the malware threat, and the timely reaction is a chance to prevent the harm. Be cautious on the Internet, look for the symptoms of malware on the machine, and it will be ready for anything.
