How to protect the computer?

There is one significant thing that you must understand about any malware: how not to let it sneak in the PC. This happens via three main techniques:

  • Download from a suspicious site. There are web-sites that distribute the unwanted software and they don't even try to hide it. Such tools have the confined list of functions: the performance of some actions in Facebook, the improvement of Web surfing, acting installation of all drivers and updates for your devices, search for advantageous deals on the Net, showing the latest unpaid content such as music, games and movies. All of these functions are already integrated into the browsers, or is in the Windows tools list, so, it means that such programs are simply needless, and the web-site that propagates them is, probably, unsafe.
  • Viruses may be attached to good tools. If you often use the free programs, you know what we are talking about. You install the program, and then you see the window with the proposal of the installation of the marvelous media player, browser, the new toolbar for it, special program, and, maybe, few another weird, but extremely "useful" tools. You do not even need to decide anything because the installation has already been verified, and in most cases, it is very hard to abort the installation of unwanted software.
  • In some cases user installs adware by his own will. Clever written description of the tool and its marvelous (and nonexistent) advantages deludes the customer, and he installs malware.

The penetration via e-mail is also highly effective, but this method is used most of the cases by malware and ransomware, and not by adware. If you read this part, we think, that is gone for good. If you choose the removal in manual manner, you should know how to understand that there is a virus on your computer.

  • Slow loading of OS. Most of the unwanted programs, during the installation, tune themselves to launch at startup, and it doesn't matter if this program is used once in 6 months - it will start daily and consume your time and CPU resources. Look at the taskbar, and uninstall the unwanted software from Control Panel.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the quantity of hype increased dramatically - this is, most likely, the undesired software.
  • Critical failures when using programs, reboot or shutdown of a computer without your permit.
  • You notice a lot of programs which you've never seen before. If the software appears in the system without your consent - it is, most likely, unwanted.

Each of these red flags informs about the virus threat, and the early reaction is a chance to prevent the harm. Be watchful on the Net, track the state of your PC, and it will be ready for any task.
