How to protect the computer?

There is one significant thing that you must know about computer virus: how not to let it get inside the PC. Hijackers use a lot of ways, but we'll separate them on three main groups:

  • Infection through a suspicious site. When you are on a website, you see a confirmation to download some tools, which can seriously support you in something. Suchlike programs have the confined list of functions: the performance of some actions in Facebook, acting installation of all drivers and updates for your devices, the improvement of Web surfing, showing the latest unpaid content such as music, games and movies, search for advantageous deals on the Net. If on some site you find an offer to install the tool with any of these functions - it is completely dangerous, and the web-page itself is suspicious.
  • Download in bundles with worthy software. Almost each unpaid program allows you to install something aside from the tool that you need. You install the tool, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the confirmation on the installation of the miraculous file manager, browser, the new add-on for it, removal tool, and, maybe, few another weird, but extremely "useful" tools. The installation is already verified, and as soon as you click "OK", the installation starts, and you’ll earn 4-5 tools that you do not need, except the needed one.
  • The direct installation by user. It is very possible, because when the users see an alluring description of the tool, they think that it is highly effective.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute malware but the adware almost don't use it. If you came to these words, we believe, that Sierra-fox.com is already removed. The dependable anti-viruses know how to recognize a virus, but if you prefer the by-hand deletion - you should know all symptoms of infection.

  • Operating System boots very slowly. Most of the malware, during the installation, tune themselves to launch at startup, and it doesn't matter if this software is used once a year - it will launch every day and consume your time and CPU power. On the taskbar you can see all currently launched programs, and choose which are good and which aren't.
  • Pop-ups are everywhere. If the quantity of advertising has grown up notably - it is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • The reputable programs became slowly and unstable, machine restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • The emergence of the bizarre software in the system. If the software emerges in the system without your resolution - it is, most likely, harmful.

Every of these symptoms informs about the virus threat, and if you react in time - you will prevent the harm. Be watchful on the Internet, look for the symptoms of infection on your PC, and it will always be fast and effective.
