Advertising-oriented programs are a distinct group of unwanted programs, called adware and hijackers. Adware attack the entire machine, putting hype and advertising in the browser and on the desktop.

Both groups of programs have artful specifications of the options and benefits to delude you. The state of your laptop is getting worse according to the time that the virus had lived in it. If you'll leave hijacker unattended shortly, you'll realize that the laptop is completely overwhelmed with all kinds of strange, suspicious or even really dangerous programs.

Thereafter hijacker starts to vary the settings of browsers. When the homepage and default search engine are modified, you'll always see the infected web-site in all browsers and on every tab. After that, virus changes your browser options, responsible for advertisement. All good browsers nowadays have a function that hides the pop-ups, banners, undesired advertising and other kinds of hype. Adware deactivates these functions, and you see that the amount of advertisement in the browser is extremely high. In addition to the fact that you can see all the advertising on the Net, doesn't matter are they reliable or not, exhibits you its own commercial content. If lives on the workstation for two weeks or more, user just can't browse the Web because of banners, advertising and redirections in all browsers and sometimes even to use the computer. Why hijacker does this? The point of these doing is to coerce the user to pass the links suggested by the virus. These links may lead to the different web-pages. Some of them offer products, some - offer free programs or something else. The important thing to realize about such web-sites is: they provide benefit exclusively to their creators. There's no need to specify that any operation or load on the web-site, provided you by dangerous software, can call bad aftermath, for instance - getting a virus. As you can see, don't cause harm on its own, and it only gives the possibility to perform actions that will bring damage.

How to protect the computer?

There is one significant thing that you have to understand about PC virus: how not to let it get into the computer. Viruses use lots of ways, but we'll separate them on three basic groups:

  • Download from a dangerous web-page. There are websites that spread the adware without any precautions. The features of these software are usual, they are: giving the info about best discounts on the Internet, the enhancement of Internet browsing, the implementation of certain tasks in Twitter, providing the newest unpaid media-content such as games, music and movies, automated download of each update or driver for your gear. If on any site you receive an offer to install the software with similar features - it is completely dangerous, and the web-page itself is unreliable.
  • Adware might be bundled with good programs. Almost each toll-free software suggests you to get something except the tool that you want. You install the software, and then you see the window with the suggestion to get the antivirus, brilliant file manager, browser, the new extension for it, and, maybe, a pair of different weird, but highly "effective" tools. The installation is already confirmed, and once you press "OK", the installation starts, and you’ll get 3-4 programs that you do not need, except the useful one.
  • The direct installation by user. Smart composed description of the tool and its marvelous (and nonexistent) features misinforms the customer, and he sets up adware.

The infection via viral e-mail attachment is also extremely efficient, but this way is used most of the cases by malware and ransomware, and not by adware. If you read this part, we think, that is already deleted. If you prefer the hand uninstall, you must know how to determine that there is malware on your computer.

  • Slow launch of Windows. The programs that turn on at startup are, most often, the cause of long boot. Look at the taskbar, and remove the unwanted software from Control Panel.
  • Banners are everywhere. If the numbers of advertising increased notably - this is, most likely, virus.
  • The good software became unstable and slow, PC restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • The emergence of the unknown tools in the system. If the software emerges on the machine without your permission - it is, nothing else than the malware.

If you find one of these symptoms in your system - you need to perform an overall scan through antivirus, or manually remove all the useless and harmful tools from your computer. Be careful on the Net, watch at the status of your PC, and it will be ready for anything.
