When the pre-set search engine and the homepage are switched, you'll always see the infected website in every browser and on any tab. Then, virus alters your browser controls, responsible for advertising. Most browsers now have a service which hides the pop-ups, annoying advertisement, banners and other sorts of hype. Hijacker turns these services off, and you understand that the amount of advertisement in all new tabs is extremely increased. Besides the fact that you are getting all the pop-ups of the Internet, regardless of whether they are worthy or not, it shows you its own commercial content. If the hijacker functions on the machine for 5-7 days, man simply can't browse the Net because of redirections, pop-ups and hype in browser and sometimes even to use the machine. For what is this done? All struggles of hijacker are aimed at one target: to force you to make a click. Those links frequently lead to infected web-pages that suggest substandard products, or services. These web-pages simply aren't visited by anybody except their proprietors, and they have only one chance: to bait people to the web-site with use of a trick.

How to protect the computer?

There is one significant thing that you need to know about any adware: how not to let it crawl into the system. Viruses use a lot of ways, but we'll separate them on three main groups:

  • Download from a viral site. When you're on a web-site, you are shown a confirmation to install miraculous tools, which might greatly assist you in something. Such tools have the bounded list of features: search for the latest toll-free content such as movies, music and games, acting download of any driver or update for your hardware, providing the info about advantageous offers on the Web, the improvement of Web browsing, the realization of some tasks in Facebook. All of these features are already built into the browsers, or is in the Windows tools list, which means - such tools are just futile, and the website that propagates them is, most likely, infected.
  • Download in the package with good tools. If you often use the toll-free software, you are familiar with this. You download the tool, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the suggestion of the installation of the anti-virus, browser, the additional add-on for it, brilliant media player, and God knows what else. You do not even need to make a decision because the installation has already been confirmed, and in most cases, it will be very complicated to abort the installation of suspicious software.
  • The direct download by user. Clever composed description of the tool and its magnificent (and nonexistent) features misinforms the user, and he downloads malware.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute viruses but it is rarely used by advertising programs. If you came to these words, we think, that is gone for good. The dependable anti-viral programs understand to detect a virus, but if you prefer the removal in manual manner - you have to know all symptoms of virus.

  • Slow loading of Windows. The tools that launch at startup are, in most cases, the reason of tardy boot. Check the taskbar, and search for unwanted software.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the numbers of advertisement increased noticeably - that is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • The dependable software became unstable and slow, PC reboots and turns off by itself.
  • You notice a lot of software which you haven't installed. If the tool emerges on the machine without your permit - it is, nothing else than the adware.

Every of these symptoms informs about the malware threat, and the timely reaction is a chance to avoid the damage. Be cautious on the Net, look for the symptoms of malware on your computer, and it will anytime be fast and functional.
