How to protect the computer?

There is one significant thing that you should understand about any adware: how not to let it enter the system. Viruses use plenty of ways, but we'll separate them on three main groups:

  • Infection through a viral web-site. Some web-sites spread the hijackers and they don't even try to hide it. The features of suchlike software are usual, they are: self download of every driver or update for your hardware, 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. If on the website you receive a suggestion to install the tool with any of these features - it is really dangerous, and the website itself is suspicious.
  • Download in bundles with good tools. If you often use the toll-free tools, you know what we are talking about. You download the software, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the suggestion to install the browser, the new add-on for it, marvelous media player, antivirus, and, maybe, few another strange, but highly "effective" tools. The checkboxes are already filled, and as soon as you press "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll earn few trashy tools, instead of one that you want to have.
  • In some cases user downloads malicious programs voluntarily. It is highly possible, because when some customers see a tempting description of the tool, they think that it is really efficient.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute malware but the adware almost don't use it. If you came to these words, we think, that adware is already eliminated. If you choose the disposal in manual mode, you must know how to understand that there is malware on your machine.

  • The system boots really slowly. The tools that run at startup are, very often, the reason of tardy boot. At the taskbar you can see all currently working tools, and decide which are useful and which aren't.
  • Banners are everywhere. If the amount of advertisement increased dramatically - it is, most likely, virus.
  • Critical faults when using programs, shutdown or restart of a computer without your permit.
  • The emergence of the strange software on your machine. If the software shows up in the system without your resolution - it is, most likely, unwanted.

If you see one of these red flags on your machine - you have to make an overall scan with help of anti-viral program, or manually get rid of all the unwanted and harmful software from your machine. Don't believe in everything you see on the Internet, watch at the condition of your PC, and it will be ready for anything.
