How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you have to know about any virus: how not to let it crawl inside your PC. Malware use lots of ways, but they all can be separated on three main groups:

  • Infection through a suspicious web-site. When you open a website, you see a confirmation to install few programs, which might seriously help you in something. Such tools have the confined list of functions: showing the newest free media-content such as games, movies and music, the acceleration of Net surfing, 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. All of these options are already integrated into the browsers, or is in the list of Windows services, which means - these tools are completely worthless, and the site that disseminates them is, very likely, harmful.
  • Download in bundles with helpful software. If you have ever downloaded the free tools, you are familiar with this. You download the program, and in one of the windows you see the proposal to install the brilliant file manager, removal software, browser, the additional add-on for it, and God knows what else. The installation is already verified, and if you press "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll get few tools that you do not need, instead of needed one.
  • The straight download by user. Clever written specification of the product and its useful (and nonexistent) features misinforms the user, and he sets up adware.

The penetration via e-mail is also extremely popular, but this way is used most of the cases by malware and ransomware, and not by advertisement software. If you see this part, we suppose, that Seekforsearch.com is already uninstalled. The dependable antiviruses understand to detect a virus, but if you prefer the hand removal - you must know all signs of infection.

  • Slow boot of Windows. The processes that run at startup are, most often, the reason of long boot. On the taskbar you will see all currently launched tools, and decide which are useful and which are not.
  • Pop-ups are everywhere. If the numbers of advertising has grown up noticeably - it is, most likely, the unwanted software.
  • The dependable programs functions unstable and slow, machine reboots and shuts down by itself.
  • The emergence of the suspicious software in your system. If the tool appears on your computer without your consent - it's, nothing else than the virus.

If you find one of these red flags in your system - you have to do a full scan through AV-program, or manually get rid of all the unwanted and malicious software from your PC. Don't believe in everything you see on the Net, watch for the symptoms of virus on the machine, and it will always be fast and functional.
