How to protect the computer?

There is one simple thing that you must understand about any malware: how not to let it get onto the PC. This happens via three main methods:

  • Download from a suspicious site. There are websites, which propagate the harmful software and aren't even hiding it. Such programs have the confined list of features: the enhancement of Internet browsing, the implementation of certain tasks in Twitter, automated download of each update or driver for your gear, giving the info about best discounts on the Internet, providing the newest unpaid media-content such as games, music and movies. If on some website you receive an offer to install the software with similar features - it is really malicious, and the website itself is unsafe.
  • Viruses might be attached to worthy software. If you often use the toll-free programs, you understand what that means. You download the software, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the proposal of the installation of the browser, the additional toolbar for it, miraculous file manager, special tool, and, maybe, some another weird, but highly "effective" tools. You do not even need to make a decision because the installation has already been verified, and in some cases, it is very hard to cancel the undesired installations.
  • Sometimes user installs adware by his own will. It is very possible, because when some people read an attractive specification of the program, they think that it is really efficient.

The penetration via e-mail is also extremely effective, but this manner is used most of the cases by malware and ransomware, and not by adware. If you read these words, we think, that hijacker is already gone. The reputable anti-viruses know how to recognize malware, but if you prefer the by-hand disposal - you should know all symptoms of virus.

  • Slow boot of Windows. The tools that turn on at startup are, in most cases, the cause of tardy boot. At the taskbar you can see all currently working programs, and choose the ones that are helpful and which aren't.
  • Appearance of advertising in the browser. If the numbers of advertisement increased dramatically - that is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • Critical errors while using software, shutdown or reboot of a PC without the user's permit.
  • The emergence of the strange software in your system. If the tool appears in your system without your permit - it's, nothing else than the malware.

If you see one of the described above red flags in your system - you need to make an overall scan with use of antivirus, or manually uninstall all the undesired and malicious programs from your machine. Be careful on the Web, watch at the condition of your PC, and it will anytime be fast and functional.
