How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you have to know about any adware: how not to let it enter your system. This happens through three basic methods:

  • Infection through a malicious website. There are web-pages that spread the adware without any precautions. These programs have the confined list of functions: search for the latest toll-free content such as movies, music and games, the realization of some tasks in Facebook, providing the info about advantageous offers on the Web, acting download of any driver or update for your hardware, the improvement of Web browsing. If on any web-site you find a suggestion to download the program with such functions - it is really malicious, and the web-page itself is suspicious.
  • Viruses can be attached to helpful software. If you have ever used the free software, you know what we are talking about. You download the tool, and then you see the window with the suggestion to install the special program, browser, the new toolbar for it, marvelous media player, and, maybe, some another weird, but very "effective" tools. You do not even need to make a decision because the installation has already been confirmed, and in most cases, it is very hard to abort the undesired installations.
  • The straight installation by user. Smart composed specification of the program and its brilliant (and nonexistent) features misinforms the customer, and he sets up the virus.

The e-mails are also often used, to spread viruses but the adware almost don't use it. If you see these words, we believe, that is gone for good. If you choose the deletion in manual mode, you need to know how to realize that there is a virus on your machine.

  • The system boots very slowly. The programs that run at startup are, in most cases, the cause of tardy boot. At the taskbar you will see all currently working programs, and decide which are good and which are not.
  • Appearance of ads in the browser. If the amount of advertising increased noticeably - that is, most likely, the undesired software.
  • The reliable tools runs unstable and slow, computer reboots and turns off by itself.
  • You notice lots of software which you've never seen before. If the software appears on your PC without your permission - it's, most likely, undesired.

Every of these red flags informs about the virus threat, and the timely reaction is a way to avoid the harm. Don't believe in everything you see on the Web, watch at the status of your computer, and it will always be fast and efficient.
