How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such virus, you have to know for sure in which way got on your system. Hijackers use lots of ways, but they all can be divided on three basic groups:

  • Infection through a malicious web-page. Some web-sites spread the hijackers and aren't even hiding it. Suchlike programs have the bounded list of features: showing the information about beneficial discounts on the Web, the execution of specific actions in Facebook, automatic download of all drivers and updates for your devices, providing the latest free content such as games, music and movies, the enhancement of Internet browsing. If on any site you receive an offer to install the program with such functions - it is completely harmful, and the site itself is suspicious.
  • Adware can be attached to other programs. Nearly every free software proposes you to get something except the needed tool. You install the tool, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the confirmation on the installation of the super-useful media player, anti-virus, browser, the new add-on for it, and God knows what else. The checkboxes are already filled, and once you press "OK", the installation starts, and you’ll install 3-4 programs that you do not need, instead of one that you want to get.
  • The direct installation by user. It is highly possible, because when the people read a tempting description of software, they decide that it is really useful.

The penetration via viral e-mail attachment is also very effective, but this technique is used most of the times by malware and ransomware, and not by advertisement software. We believe that when you're reading these words, will be completely deleted from the workstation. The known antiviruses understand to locate malware, but if you prefer the removal in manual manner - you need to know all symptoms of virus.

  • Slow boot of Windows. The tools that turn on at startup are, very often, the reason of tardy boot. On the taskbar you can see all currently launched programs, and choose the ones that are reliable and which aren't.
  • Appearance of advertising in on every page. If the numbers of hype increased dramatically - this is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • Critical failures while using programs, reboot or shutdown of a laptop without the user's permission.
  • The emergence of the suspicious tools in the system. If the tool appears on the machine without your consent - it is, nothing else than the malware.

If you find one of these red flags on your computer - you need to do a total scan with use of anti-virus, or manually remove all the unwanted and dangerous programs from your machine. Be careful on the Net, look for the symptoms of virus on your machine, and it will always be fast and effective.
