How to protect the computer?

To prevent penetration by such virus in the future, you have to know for sure how got into your workstation. This may happen through three main methods:

  • Infection through a dangerous site. When you're on a website, you see a confirmation to install special software that would seriously support you in something. These programs have the limited list of functions: self installation of all updates and drivers for your devices, search for most profitable deals on the Net, showing the newest free media-content such as games, movies and music, the fulfillment of certain actions in the social networks, the acceleration of Net surfing. If on some web-page you find an offer to install the tool with these functions - it is absolutely harmful, and the web-site itself is unreliable.
  • Viruses can be bundled with helpful tools. If you have ever installed the unpaid programs, you are familiar with this. You install the program, and during the installation there is a window with the suggestion to install the brilliant file manager, browser, the new add-on for it, AV-software, and, maybe, some different weird, but very "efficient" tools. There's no need to make a decision because the all fields are already checked, and in some cases, it is very complicated to decline the unwanted installations.
  • The direct installation by user. Smart composed description of the tool and its brilliant (and nonexistent) advantages misinforms the customer, and he installs malware.

The penetration via viral e-mail attachment is also extremely effective, but this manner is used most of the cases by ransomware and viruses, and not by advertisement software. If you see these words, we suppose, that adware is gone for good. The known anti-viral tools know how to detect a virus, but if you prefer the disposal in manual manner - you must know all symptoms of virus.

  • The system boots very slowly. The tools that launch at startup are, very often, the reason of tardy boot. On the taskbar you will see all currently working tools, and choose the ones that are useful and which aren't.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the numbers of ads has grown up dramatically - this is, most likely, virus.
  • The good software became slowly and unstable, machine reboots and turns off by itself.
  • You notice a lot of software which you haven't installed. If the tool shows up in the system without your permission - it is, most likely, harmful.

Every of these symptoms shows the malware threat, and if you react in time - you will prevent the damage. Be watchful on the Internet, track the condition of your machine, and it will always be clean and functional.
