How to protect the computer?

To prevent similar problems in the future, you have to understand precisely how got onto the workstation. Malware use plenty of ways, but they all can be divided on three main groups:

  • Download from a malicious website. Some web-pages disseminate the malware and aren't even hiding it. Suchlike tools have the limited list of advantages: providing the info about advantageous offers on the Web, the realization of some tasks in Facebook, acting download of any driver or update for your hardware, the improvement of Web browsing, search for the latest toll-free content such as movies, music and games. If on the web-page you receive a suggestion to install the tool with these features - it is completely harmful, and the web-site itself is unreliable.
  • Hijackers may be bundled with good programs. If you often use the unpaid tools, you understand what that means. You install the software, and then you see the window with the proposal to get the browser, the new toolbar for it, special program, marvelous media player, and, maybe, a pair of another unknown, but extremely "useful" tools. The checkboxes are already filled, and once you press "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll earn 2-3 useless programs, instead of needed one.
  • The direct installation by user. It is highly possible, because when the customers read an attractive specification of software, they think that it is really effective.

The infection via e-mail is also extremely popular, but this technique is used most of the cases by malware and ransomware, and not by adware. We suppose that when you're reading these words, will be already uninstalled from your machine. If you choose the by-hand deletion, you must know how to determine that there is malware on your computer.

  • Slow loading of OS. The processes that launch at startup are, most often, the reason of long boot. Look at the taskbar, and search for useless tools.
  • Appearance of advertisement in on every page. If the numbers of advertisement increased notably - this is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • The good software functions slowly and unstable, machine reboots and turns off by itself.
  • You notice a lot of installed tools that you haven't installed. If the tool emerges on your computer without your permit - it is, most likely, dangerous.

Each of these red flags indicates the virus threat, and if you react in time - you will prevent the damage. Be watchful on the Net, follow the state of your PC, and it will be ready for anything.
