How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you must understand about any virus: how not to let it sneak onto your PC. This occurs through three basic methods:

  • Download from a malicious web-page. When you open a web-site, you are shown a confirmation to install some software, which might greatly help you in some cases. These programs have the bounded list of functions: giving the info about best discounts on the Internet, automated download of each update or driver for your gear, the enhancement of Internet browsing, providing the newest unpaid media-content such as games, music and movies, the implementation of certain tasks in Twitter. If on some website you find an offer to install the tool with such functions - it is really harmful, and the website itself is suspicious.
  • Malware may be attached to worthy tools. If you often use the toll-free tools, you are familiar with this. You download the program, and then you see the window with the suggestion to install the AV-software, browser, the new toolbar for it, miraculous media player, and God knows what else. The checkboxes are already filled, and if you press "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll earn few trashy programs, besides the useful one.
  • The direct installation by user. It is also possible, because when the users read an alluring description of software, they think that it is very effective.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute malware but the adware almost don't use it. If you read this part, we suppose, that is gone for good. The well antiviruses know how to recognize malware, but if you prefer the manual deletion - you must know all red flags of virus.

  • Slow launch of Operating System. The processes that run at startup are, very often, the cause of slow boot. Look at the taskbar, and remove the undesired programs from Control Panel.
  • Appearance of advertising in on every website. If the quantity of ads increased noticeably - this is, most likely, the undesired software.
  • Critical faults when using software, shutdown or reboot of a computer without the user's resolution.
  • You see lots of programs that you haven't installed. If the program shows up in the system without your permission - it is, nothing else than the adware.

If you see one of the mentioned above red flags on your computer - you need to make a full scan through antivirus, or manually get rid of all the unwanted and dangerous programs from your machine. Don't trust in everything you see on the Net, watch at the state of your machine, and it will be ready for any task.
