How to protect the computer?

To prevent similar problems, you must know for sure how got on your machine. This happens via three basic manners:

  • Download from a malicious web-page. Some web-pages propagate the harmful programs and they don't even try to hide it. The promises of these programs are common, they are: automatic download of all drivers and updates for your devices, the execution of specific actions in Facebook, the enhancement of Internet browsing, showing the information about beneficial discounts on the Web, providing the latest free content such as games, music and movies. All of these options are already integrated into the browsers, or present in the OS tools list, so, it means that such tools are absolutely futile, and the website, which propagates them is, very likely, infected.
  • Malware may be bundled with other programs. If you have ever downloaded the free software, you understand what that means. You download the tool, and during the installation there is a window with the suggestion to install the browser, the additional extension for it, miraculous file manager, AV-software, and, maybe, a pair of different unknown, but extremely "effective" tools. The checkboxes are already filled, and as soon as you click "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll get 4-5 unknown programs, instead of one that you wish to get.
  • Sometimes user downloads viruses by his own will. It is very possible, because when the people read a colorful description of the program, they decide that it is really efficient.

The infection via e-mail is also extremely effective, but this technique is used most of the times by ransomware and viruses, and not by adware. We hope that when you're reading this part of the guide, will be completely deleted from your system. The good anti-viruses know how to detect a virus, but if you prefer the disposal in manual mode - you have to know all signs of infection.

  • The system boots really slowly. The tools that run at startup are, most often, the cause of slow boot. Check the taskbar, and search for undesired tools.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the amount of advertisement has grown up noticeably - it is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • Critical faults while using tools, shutdown or reboot of a machine without the user's resolution.
  • The emergence of the strange programs in the system. If the software emerges in the system without your permit - it's, nothing else than the virus.

Any of these symptoms indicates the malware threat, and the timely reaction is a way to avoid the harm. Don't believe in everything you see on the Internet, watch for the symptoms of malware on your computer, and it will anytime be clean and functional.
