How to protect the computer?

To prevent such issues, you have to know for sure how got onto the laptop. Malware use a lot of ways, but we'll divide them on three basic groups:

  • Download from a dangerous web-page. When you are on a web-site, you see a pop-up window with an invitation to download miraculous programs that may greatly help you in some cases. Such tools have the confined list of functions: providing the newest free media-content such as movies, games and music, self download of every driver or update for your hardware, the fulfillment of definite tasks in Twitter, the acceleration of Net surfing, search for most profitable discounts on the Web. If on any web-page you receive a suggestion to install the tool with such features - it is very dangerous, and the web-page itself is unsafe.
  • Undesired programs can be bundled with other programs. Nearly each toll-free software proposes you to install something except the needed tool. You install the tool, and during the installation there is a window with the proposal to get the marvelous file manager, browser, the new extension for it, removal tool, and, maybe, few different strange, but extremely "effective" tools. You do not even need to make a decision because the installation has already been verified, and in most cases, it is very hard to cancel the installation of undesired programs.
  • In some cases user installs dangerous software by his own will. Carefully written description of the software and its brilliant (and nonexistent) advantages misinforms the user, and he sets up adware.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute viruses but the adware almost don't use it. We suppose that by the time you're reading this paragraph of the article, will be fully deleted from the laptop. The reputable anti-viral tools understand to recognize malware, but if you prefer the deletion in manual mode - you need to know all signs of virus.

  • OS boots really slowly. The tools that turn on at startup are, very often, the reason of slow boot. Inspect the taskbar, and remove the useless programs from Control Panel.
  • Banners are everywhere. If the numbers of hype has grown up notably - that is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • Critical errors while using tools, shutdown or restart of a laptop without the user's permit.
  • The emergence of the bizarre software in the system. If the software emerges in the system without your permission - it is, most likely, undesired.

Each of these symptoms informs about the virus threat, and the timely reaction is a way to prevent the damage. Be cautious on the Net, watch at the status of your machine, and it will always be clean and functional.
