Advantages of different removal methods

 

How to protect the computer?

To prevent similar issues, you need to know for sure in which way Xvidvideocodecs.com got onto your computer. Adware use lots of ways, but we'll divide them on three main groups:

  • Download from a viral web-page. When you open a web-page, you see a pop-up window with an invitation to install some tools that can seriously help you in some cases. The promises of suchlike programs are usual, they are: providing the info about advantageous offers on the Web, acting download of any driver or update for your hardware, the realization of some tasks in Facebook, search for the latest toll-free content such as movies, music and games, the improvement of Web browsing. If on the web-page you see an offer to install the software with similar features - it is really harmful, and the web-site itself is untrusted.
  • Hijackers might be bundled with free programs. If you often use the free programs, you know what that means. You download the tool, and in one of the windows you see the suggestion to install the miraculous media player, special tool, browser, the additional add-on for it, and, maybe, a pair of different strange, but very "useful" tools. The installation is already confirmed, and once you click "OK", the installation starts, and you’ll get 3-4 trashy programs, except the one that you wish to have.
  • The direct download by user. It is highly possible, because when some customers read a colorful description of software, they think that it is highly useful.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread malware but the hijackers almost don't use it. If you read these words, we think, that adware is gone for good. The good anti-viral tools understand to detect a virus, but if you prefer the manual removal - you have to know all red flags of infection.

  • Slow launch of Operating System. The majority of adware, during the installation, tune themselves to run at startup, and it doesn't matter if this software is used once a year - it will start daily and consume your time and CPU resources. On the taskbar you can see all currently launched programs, and decide the ones that are good and which aren't.
  • Appearance of advertising in the browser. If the numbers of ads has grown up notably - this is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • Critical errors while using tools, restart or shutdown of a workstation without the user's permit.
  • You notice a lot of installed tools which you've never seen before. If the software appears in your system without your permission - it's, most likely, malicious.

If you notice one of the mentioned above symptoms in your system - you have to do a full scan with assistance of AV-tool, or manually delete all the useless and malicious tools from your system. Be cautious on the Net, watch at the state of your PC, and it will anytime be clean and efficient.
