How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you should know about any adware: how not to let it get onto your computer. This happens via three basic ways:

  • Download from a dangerous website. When you're on a web-site, you are shown a banner with a request to install miraculous software, which would seriously support you in some cases. Such tools have the confined list of advantages: the acceleration of Net surfing, showing the newest free media-content such as games, movies and music, self installation of all updates and drivers for your devices, the fulfillment of certain actions in the social networks, search for most profitable deals on the Net. Each such feature is already built into the browsers, or present in the list of Windows services, which means - these tools are just needless, and the web-page, which disseminates them is, very likely, malicious.
  • Download in bundles with helpful programs. Nearly every free tool proposes you to install something except the needed tool. You download the tool, and in one of the windows you see the suggestion of the installation of the marvelous file manager, antivirus, browser, the new toolbar for it, and God knows what else. The checkboxes are already filled, and once you click "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll install 3-4 useless programs, besides the one that you want to get.
  • The straight installation by user. It is very possible, because when some customers read a tempting specification of the tool, they think that it is really efficient.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute viruses but the hijackers almost don't use it. We suppose that if you're reading this paragraph of the guide, will be already eliminated from your machine. The good anti-viruses understand to recognize a virus, but if you prefer the by-hand deletion - you must know all red flags of infection.

  • Slow launch of Windows. The programs that run at startup are, very often, the cause of tardy boot. Check the taskbar, and search for unwanted tools.
  • Appearance of advertisement in all tabs. If the numbers of advertisement increased notably - this is, most likely, the undesired software.
  • The good programs became unstable and slow, machine restarts and turns off by itself.
  • You see lots of installed tools which you haven't installed. If the program appears on the PC without your permission - it is, nothing else than the adware.

Any of these red flags shows the malware threat, and the timely reaction is a chance to avoid the damage. Don't trust in everything you see on the Net, watch for the symptoms of malware on your machine, and it will be ready for anything.
