Properties of browser shortcut are changed and the services which refer to the amount of hype are powered off. The browsers now have a function that hides the banners, intrusive ads, pop-ups and other types of hype. Hijacker switches these functions off, and you see that the amount of advertising in the browser is extremely high. In addition, to that the amount of advertisement has grown up observably, its quality became really low. If adware works on the machine for 5-7 days, man simply can't surf the Web because of banners, ads and redirections in all browsers and sometimes even to launch the PC. Why hijacker does this? The essence of such actions is to force you to click on the links offered by the virus. Viral links frequently lead to third-class websites suggesting useless goods, or services. These sites simply aren't visited by anyone besides their owners, and the only way out for them is to drag customers to the site with the help of such tricks.

How to protect the computer?

To prevent such problems, you must know closely in which way got onto your laptop. This happens through three main ways:

  • Infection through an untrusted web-site. When you are on a website, you see a confirmation to install certain tools, which would greatly assist you in some cases. Such programs have the confined list of features: showing the newest free media-content such as games, movies and music, search for most profitable deals on the Net, the fulfillment of certain actions in the social networks, self installation of all updates and drivers for your devices, the acceleration of Net surfing. All of these features are already integrated into the browsers, or is in the operating system tools list, which means - these software are just needless, and the web-page, which distributes them is, apparently, dangerous.
  • Adware might be attached to good programs. Literally each unpaid tool suggests you to get something aside from the tool that you need. You install the software, and then you see the window with the proposal to install the browser, the additional add-on for it, super-useful media player, antivirus, and God knows what else. There's no need to make a decision because the all fields are already filled, and in some cases, it is very complicated to decline the installation of useless programs.
  • The straight installation by user. It is highly possible, because when the users read an alluring specification of software, they believe that it is highly effective.

The e-mails are also often used, to spread harmful programs but it is rarely used by adware. We suppose that when you're reading these words, will be fully deleted from your computer. If you choose the uninstall in manual mode, you have to know how to realize that there is a virus on your PC.

  • Slow loading of OS. The programs that turn on at startup are, in most cases, the reason of tardy boot. On the taskbar you can see all currently launched programs, and decide the ones that are reliable and which aren't.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the amount of advertising has grown up noticeably - that is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • The reliable programs functions slowly and unstable, PC restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • You see many software that you've never seen before. If the program appears on the computer without your consent - it is, nothing else than the malware.

Each of these symptoms informs about the malware threat, and the timely reaction is a way to avoid the harm. Don't believe in everything you see on the Web, watch for the symptoms of malware on your computer, and it will always be fast and effective.
