How to protect the computer?

There is one significant thing that you have to know about any malware: how not to let it enter the PC. This occurs via three basic manners:

  • Infection through a malicious web-site. Some web-sites spread the dangerous programs without any precautions. The functions of such software are common, they are: the realization of some tasks in Facebook, search for the latest toll-free content such as movies, music and games, providing the info about advantageous offers on the Web, the improvement of Web browsing, acting download of any driver or update for your hardware. If on some website you receive an offer to install the software with any of these functions - it is absolutely harmful, and the web-site itself is suspicious.
  • Download in bundles with helpful programs. Almost each free software suggests you to get something except the needed tool. You install the program, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the suggestion to install the antivirus, browser, the additional toolbar for it, brilliant file manager, and God knows what else. There's no need to decide anything because the all fields are already filled, and in most cases, it is very complicated to abort the unwanted installations.
  • The straight download by user. Carefully composed specification of the program and its marvelous (and nonexistent) features deceives the customer, and he sets up the program.

The e-mails are also often used, to spread malware but it is rarely used by adware. We suppose that when you're reading this part of the article, will be totally removed from the computer. The known antiviruses understand to locate malware, but if you prefer the deletion in manual manner - you need to know all red flags of infection.

  • Slow launch of Operating System. The processes that run at startup are, most often, the cause of tardy boot. On the taskbar you can see all currently launched programs, and decide the ones that are helpful and which are not.
  • Appearance of ads in all tabs. If the quantity of hype increased noticeably - it is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • Critical failures while using software, restart or shutdown of a laptop without the user's permission.
  • The emergence of the bizarre tools in your system. If the program emerges on the PC without your consent - it is, most likely, harmful.

If you see one of the mentioned above symptoms on your computer - you need to perform an overall scan through anti-virus, or manually delete all the undesired and malicious software from your system. Be cautious on the Web, follow the state of your computer, and it will be ready for any work.
