How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such malware, you should know for sure in which way got into the computer. Adware use a lot of ways, but we'll divide them on three basic groups:

  • Infection through an untrusted web-page. When you're on a web-page, you see a banner with a request to install special tools that may seriously assist you in something. The promises of such programs are ordinary, they are: providing the latest free content such as games, music and movies, the execution of specific actions in Facebook, showing the information about beneficial discounts on the Web, the enhancement of Internet browsing, automatic download of all drivers and updates for your devices. If on the web-site you find a suggestion to download the software with any of these functions - it is completely harmful, and the site itself is unreliable.
  • Malware can be bundled with helpful programs. Practically every unpaid tool suggests you to get something except the tool that you need. You install the software, and then you see the window with the proposal of the installation of the browser, the additional toolbar for it, removal tool, brilliant media player, and God knows what else. You do not even need to make a decision because the all fields are already filled, and in most cases, it is very difficult to decline the installation of suspicious programs.
  • In some cases user downloads viruses by his own will. Clever written description of the software and its useful (and nonexistent) advantages misguides the user, and he downloads the virus.

The e-mails are used very often, to distribute harmful programs but the hijackers almost don't use it. We suppose that by the time you're reading these words, will be already uninstalled from your computer. If you prefer the deletion in manual manner, you should know how to understand that your workstation has a virus.

  • OS boots very slowly. The programs that launch at startup are, in most cases, the reason of long boot. At the taskbar you can see all currently working programs, and decide the ones that are useful and which aren't.
  • Ads are everywhere. If the quantity of hype has grown up noticeably - it is, most likely, virus.
  • The reputable programs functions unstable and slow, machine reboots and turns off by itself.
  • The appearance of the strange tools on your machine. If the tool emerges in the system without your resolution - it is, nothing else than the adware.

If you find one of these red flags on your machine - you should make an overall scan with assistance of special software, or manually delete all the undesired and dangerous tools from your PC. Be careful on the Web, follow the status of your computer, and it will be ready for any job.
