How to protect the computer?

There is one simple thing that you have to understand about PC virus: how not to let it enter the computer. Viruses use lots of ways, but we'll assort them on three main groups:

  • Infection through a viral website. There are web-sites that propagate the malware and aren't even hiding it. The promises of such software are ordinary, they are: acting installation of all drivers and updates for your devices, the improvement of Web surfing, the performance of some actions in Facebook, showing the latest unpaid content such as music, games and movies, search for advantageous deals on the Net. Any such option is already integrated into the browsers, or present in the Windows tools list, so, it means that such programs are completely futile, and the website that distributes them is, probably, infected.
  • Viruses might be attached to worthy tools. Practically each unpaid tool allows you to get something except the needed tool. You install the tool, and during the installation there is a window with the suggestion of the installation of the antivirus, browser, the new extension for it, super-useful media player, and God knows what else. There's no need to make a decision because the all fields are already checked, and in most cases, it is very hard to decline the undesired installations.
  • Sometimes user installs adware by his own will. It is also possible, because when some customers see an alluring specification of the tool, they decide that it is very effective.

The penetration via e-mail is also extremely efficient, but this technique is used most of the cases by malware and ransomware, and not by advertisement software. If you read these words, we think, that adware is already gone. The known anti-viral tools know how to recognize malware, but if you prefer the by-hand deletion - you must know all red flags of infection.

  • OS boots very slowly. The majority of harmful programs, during the installation, tune themselves to turn on at startup, and it doesn't matter if this tool is used once in 6 months - it will launch daily and take your time and CPU power. Check the taskbar, and search for harmful software.
  • Appearance of advertising in all tabs. If the numbers of advertisement has grown up dramatically - that is, most likely, virus.
  • Critical failures while using tools, restart or shutdown of a machine without the user's resolution.
  • You see lots of software that you haven't installed. If the program appears on the computer without your resolution - it's, most likely, harmful.

If you find one of the described above red flags on your PC - you have to do an overall scan through anti-virus, or manually remove all the undesired and malicious programs from your PC. Don't trust in everything you see on the Internet, watch for the symptoms of malware on the computer, and it will be ready for anything.
