How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you should know about any virus: how not to let it enter your PC. This occurs via three main techniques:

  • Infection through a suspicious web-page. Some web-pages disseminate the viruses and aren't even hiding it. The features of these software are common, they are: search for most profitable discounts on the Web, the fulfillment of definite tasks in Twitter, the acceleration of Net surfing, providing the newest free media-content such as movies, games and music, self download of every driver or update for your hardware. Each such option is already built into the browsers, or is in the list of Windows services, which means - such programs are completely futile, and the site, which propagates them is, probably, dangerous.
  • Viruses might be attached to good programs. If you have ever used the unpaid tools, you are familiar with this. You download the software, and then you see the window with the suggestion of the installation of the miraculous media player, special program, browser, the additional extension for it, and God knows what else. The checkboxes are already filled, and once you press "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll install 2-3 tools that you do not need, besides the one that you would like to have.
  • In some cases user downloads hijackers voluntarily. Carefully composed specification of the software and its marvelous (and nonexistent) advantages misleads the customer, and he installs adware.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute malware but it is rarely used by advertising programs. If you see these words, we suppose, that adware is gone for good. If you prefer the manual disposal, you should know how to understand that your system has malware.

  • Slow boot of Windows. The majority of viruses, during the installation, tune themselves to run at startup, and it doesn't matter if this program is used once in 6 months - it will start daily and take your time and CPU power. Look at the taskbar, and search for harmful programs.
  • Appearance of advertising in on every site. If the quantity of advertising has grown up notably - this is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • Critical failures while using tools, reboot or shutdown of a workstation without your resolution.
  • You notice lots of installed tools which you've never seen before. If the program emerges on the computer without your permit - it is, most likely, unwanted.

If you find one of these symptoms in your system - you need to do a total scan through anti-virus, or manually delete all the undesired and dangerous programs from your computer. Don't believe in everything you see on the Internet, look for the symptoms of malware on the computer, and it will be ready for any task.
