How to protect the computer?

There is one significant thing that you must understand about computer virus: how not to let it enter the computer. This occurs through three basic techniques:

  • Infection through a malicious web-site. When you open a web-site, you are shown a confirmation to download few tools that might seriously support you in some things. The advantages of such tools are usual, they are: the implementation of certain tasks in Twitter, giving the info about best discounts on the Internet, the enhancement of Internet browsing, providing the newest unpaid media-content such as games, music and movies, automated download of each update or driver for your gear. If on the web-page you receive an offer to install the tool with such functions - it is very dangerous, and the web-page itself is suspicious.
  • Download in bundles with free programs. If you have ever downloaded the toll-free software, you understand what that means. You install the program, and then you see the window with the proposal to get the marvelous media player, browser, the additional add-on for it, anti-virus, and, maybe, few another unknown, but highly "efficient" tools. You do not even need to decide anything because the installation has already been confirmed, and in most cases, it will be very hard to decline the installation of unwanted programs.
  • The straight download by user. It is highly possible, because when some people see a tempting specification of the tool, they decide that it is highly useful.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread viruses but the hijackers almost don't use it. If you came to this paragraph, we think, that hijacker is already eliminated. The known AV-software understand to locate a virus, but if you prefer the hand deletion - you should know all signs of infection.

  • Operating System boots very slowly. Most of the viruses, during the installation, tune themselves to turn on at startup, and it doesn't matter if this software is used once a year - it will start every day and consume your time and CPU resources. Check the taskbar, and search for undesired programs.
  • Ads are everywhere. If the amount of advertisement increased noticeably - that is, most likely, the undesired software.
  • The dependable software functions unstable and slow, PC restarts and turns off by itself.
  • You see a lot of software which you've never seen before. If the program emerges on your machine without your permit - it is, most likely, harmful.

Each of these red flags informs about the virus threat, and the proper reaction is a way to avoid the damage. Don't believe in everything you see on the Web, watch at the state of your PC, and it will anytime be clean and functional.
