Advantages of different removal methods

 

How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such type of hijackers, you must know for sure in which way SearchWebMe.com got on the machine. This happens through three main methods:

  • Download from an untrusted web-page. There are websites, which disseminate the hijackers without any precautions. The advantages of these programs are common, they are: the performance of some actions in Facebook, search for advantageous deals on the Net, acting installation of all drivers and updates for your devices, showing the latest unpaid content such as music, games and movies, the improvement of Web surfing. Every such function is already integrated into the browsers, or present in the operating system tools list, which means - such tools are simply worthless, and the site, which propagates them is, apparently, malicious.
  • Download in bundles with free software. Nearly each free program suggests you to install something aside from the needed tool. You download the software, and in one of the windows you see the proposal to install the browser, the new extension for it, super-useful media player, antivirus, and God knows what else. The installation is already confirmed, and as soon as you press "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll get few programs that you do not need, except the needed one.
  • Sometimes user downloads viruses voluntarily. Smart composed description of the product and its wonderful (and nonexistent) functions misguides the user, and he installs the tool.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread undesired programs but it is rarely used by advertising programs. We suppose that if you're reading this part of the article, SearchWebMe.com will be completely eliminated from the machine. If you prefer the uninstall in manual mode, you must know how to understand that your computer has malware.

  • Windows boots really slowly. The processes that run at startup are, very often, the cause of long boot. Look at the taskbar, and delete the undesired software from Control Panel.
  • Appearance of advertisement in the browser. If the amount of advertisement increased dramatically - this is, most likely, virus.
  • The reliable tools became unstable and slow, PC restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • You see many installed tools that you've never seen before. If the program shows up on the PC without your permission - it's, nothing else than the malware.

If you notice one of these symptoms in your system - you need to perform a full scan through antivirus, or manually uninstall all the useless and dangerous tools from your system. Don't believe in everything you see on the Web, track the status of your machine, and it will anytime be clean and effective.
