How to protect the computer?

To prevent penetration by such sort of malicious software in the future, you must know for sure in which way got onto the computer. Adware use a lot of ways, but we'll separate them on three main groups:

  • Download from a dangerous web-page. Some websites spread the hijackers and they don't even try to hide it. The advantages of suchlike tools are ordinary, they are: 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, search for the latest toll-free content such as movies, music and games, the improvement of Web browsing. If on any web-page you find a suggestion to install the tool with any of these features - it is very dangerous, and the website itself is unreliable.
  • Adware can be bundled with other programs. If you often use the toll-free tools, you know what that means. You install the software, and in one of the windows you see the proposal to get the browser, the new toolbar for it, anti-virus, brilliant file manager, and God knows what else. The installation is already confirmed, and if you click "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll earn 3-4 programs that you do not need, instead of useful one.
  • In some cases user downloads unwanted programs by his own will. It is highly possible, because when some users read a colorful description of software, they decide that it is very effective.

The penetration via e-mail is also very effective, but this technique is used most of the times by ransomware and viruses, and not by adware. If you came to this part, we think, that is already removed. If you prefer the deletion in manual manner, you must know how to determine that your machine has malware.

  • Slow loading of Operating System. The tools that run at startup are, in most cases, the cause of slow boot. On the taskbar you can see all currently launched tools, and decide which are helpful and which are not.
  • Appearance of advertisement in the browser. If the numbers of advertisement increased noticeably - that is, most likely, virus.
  • The dependable programs runs slowly and unstable, PC restarts and turns off by itself.
  • The emergence of the suspicious software in the system. If the program emerges in the system without your resolution - it's, nothing else than the malware.

Any of these red flags indicates the virus threat, and if you react in time - you will prevent the harm. Don't trust in everything you see on the Net, look for the symptoms of infection on your PC, and it will always be clean and functional.
