How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such malware in the future, you should know precisely in which way got on your computer. This happens through three main ways:

  • Download from a malicious website. When you open a web-page, you are shown a confirmation to install brilliant tools, which might seriously help you in something. Suchlike programs have the bounded list of features: self download of every driver or update for your hardware, the acceleration of Net surfing, search for most profitable discounts on the Web, the fulfillment of definite tasks in Twitter, providing the newest free media-content such as movies, games and music. All of these options are already integrated into the browsers, or is in the list of Windows services, so, it means that such tools are absolutely worthless, and the web-page that propagates them is, probably, infected.
  • Viruses may be attached to other programs. Almost every unpaid program allows you to get something besides the tool that you want. You download the software, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the suggestion of the installation of the browser, the additional toolbar for it, super-useful media player, anti-virus, and, maybe, a pair of another strange, but very "useful" tools. There's no need to decide anything because the all boxes are already filled, and in some cases, it will be really complicated to cancel the unwanted installations.
  • Sometimes user downloads adware voluntarily. Carefully composed specification of the tool and its marvelous (and nonexistent) functions misguides the customer, and he downloads the program.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread viruses but it is rarely used by adware. We believe that if you're reading these words, will be totally removed from your PC. If you prefer the deletion in manual manner, you should know how to realize that your laptop has a virus.

  • Slow boot of Operating System. Most of the viruses, during the installation, tune themselves to launch at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. Inspect the taskbar, and search for useless software.
  • Appearance of advertisement in all tabs. If the amount of ads increased notably - this is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • The reputable programs became slowly and unstable, PC restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • You see lots of programs which you've never seen before. If the tool emerges on the machine without your resolution - it is, nothing else than the virus.

If you notice one of the described above symptoms on your computer - you need to make a total scan with help of anti-virus, or manually uninstall all the undesired and malicious programs from your machine. Be watchful on the Net, follow the status of your PC, and it will anytime be fast and functional.
