How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such type of hijackers, you need to realize closely how Traffic-media.co got onto your machine. Hijackers use a lot of ways, but they all can be separated on three main groups:

  • Infection comes on the PC through a viral web-site. When you're on a web-page, you see a banner with an invitation to download few tools that might greatly help you in something. Suchlike tools have the limited list of features: the enhancement of Internet browsing, automatic download of all drivers and updates for your devices, showing the information about beneficial discounts on the Web, providing the latest free content such as games, music and movies, the execution of specific actions in Facebook. If on the web-page you see a suggestion to download the software with these features - it is very dangerous, and the web-site itself is unreliable.
  • Hijackers might be bundled with other programs. Nearly each toll-free tool proposes you to install something except the tool that you wish. You install the tool, and during the installation there is a window with the confirmation on the installation of the anti-viral program, brilliant media player, browser, new toolbar for it, and God knows what else. The checkboxes are already filled, and once you click "OK", the installation starts, and you’ll earn few programs that you do not need, except the one that you wish to have.
  • In some cases user downloads harmful software by his own will. Smart written description of the tool and its wonderful (and nonexistent) functions misguides the customer, and he downloads the hijacker.

The penetration via viral e-mail attachment is also extremely popular, but this method is used most of the times by malware and ransomware, and not by adware. If you read this paragraph, we suppose, that hijacker is gone for good. If you choose the deletion in manual mode, you must know how to understand that your computer has a virus.

  • Slow boot of OS. The programs that turn on at startup are, in most cases, the cause of long boot. Inspect the taskbar, and search for unwanted programs.
  • Banners are everywhere. If the numbers of ads has grown up noticeably - it is, most likely, virus.
  • The reputable programs became slowly and unstable, computer restarts and turns off by itself.
  • The emergence of the suspicious tools on your machine. If the tool emerges in your system without your resolution - it's, most likely, undesired.

Any of these red flags shows the malware threat, and if you react in time - you will avoid the harm. Don't believe in everything you see on the Net, watch at the state of your machine, and it will always be fast and effective.
