How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you must know about any virus: how not to let it enter your computer. This occurs via three main ways:

  • Infection through a malicious website. Some websites propagate the viruses and aren't even hiding it. The functions of such software are common, they are: automated download of each update or driver for your gear, providing the newest unpaid media-content such as games, music and movies, the enhancement of Internet browsing, giving the info about best discounts on the Internet, the implementation of certain tasks in Twitter. If on any website you receive an offer to install the software with similar functions - it is completely dangerous, and the web-page itself is unsafe.
  • Download in the package with reliable software. If you have ever downloaded the free tools, you are familiar with this. You download the tool, and then you see the window with the proposal to install the browser, the new add-on for it, super-useful media player, antivirus, and God knows what else. The checkboxes are already filled, and once you press "OK", the installation starts, and you’ll earn 2-3 trashy programs, besides the needed one.
  • In some cases user installs adware voluntarily. It is also possible, because when some people read an alluring specification of software, they think that it is very useful.

The infection via e-mail is also extremely effective, but this technique is used mostly by ransomware and viruses, and not by adware. We believe that by the time you're reading these words, StartSearch.org will be fully removed from your machine. If you choose the by-hand deletion, you have to know how to understand that your machine has malware.

  • Windows boots really slowly. The tools that run at startup are, in most cases, the reason of slow boot. Look at the taskbar, and uninstall the unwanted programs from Control Panel.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the numbers of advertisement increased dramatically - this is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • The reliable programs became unstable and slow, PC restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • The appearance of the bizarre tools in your system. If the program emerges in your system without your permit - it's, most likely, harmful.

If you notice one of the mentioned above red flags in your system - you should make a total scan through antivirus, or manually remove all the undesired and harmful software from your computer. Be watchful on the Web, look for the symptoms of infection on the computer, and it will be ready for anything.
