How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you have to understand about any adware: how not to let it get in your PC. Malware use a lot of ways, but they all can be separated on three basic groups:

  • Infection through an untrusted web-page. There are web-sites that propagate the adware and they don't even try to hide it. The promises of such tools are common, they are: the fulfillment of definite tasks in Twitter, self download of every driver or update for your hardware, the acceleration of Net surfing, search for most profitable discounts on the Web, providing the newest free media-content such as movies, games and music. If on some web-page you see an offer to download the tool with these functions - it is really dangerous, and the website itself is suspicious.
  • Adware might be bundled with reliable software. Almost each toll-free software suggests you to install something except the tool that you need. You install the tool, and during the installation there is a window with the suggestion of the installation of the super-useful file manager, browser, the new toolbar for it, AV-tool, and, maybe, few different unknown, but extremely "useful" tools. You do not even need to decide anything because the all boxes are already filled, and in some cases, it is very complicated to abort the installation of useless programs.
  • The straight download by user. Clever written description of the tool and its brilliant (and nonexistent) functions misguides the user, and he downloads the program.

The penetration via e-mail is also highly effective, but this way is used most of the cases by ransomware and viruses, and not by adware. We believe that when you're reading this paragraph of the guide, Moatads.com will be completely eliminated from your system. If you choose the hand removal, you should know how to determine that your laptop has a virus.

  • Slow boot of OS. The majority of unwanted programs, during the installation, tune themselves to run at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. Inspect the taskbar, and search for undesired tools.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the numbers of hype has grown up dramatically - this is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • The reliable tools runs slowly and unstable, PC restarts and turns off by itself.
  • You see many installed tools which you've never seen before. If the tool shows up on the PC without your resolution - it is, nothing else than the malware.

If you see one of these symptoms in your system - you have to perform an overall scan through AV-software, or manually uninstall all the undesired and malicious tools from your PC. Be cautious on the Net, track the condition of your machine, and it will be ready for anything.
