How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you should know about any malware: how not to let it enter your PC. Adware use a lot of ways, but they all can be separated on three main groups:

  • Download from an untrusted website. Some websites disseminate the malware and aren't even hiding it. These programs have the confined list of functions: the execution of specific actions in the social networks, search for the latest toll-free content such as music, movies and games, automatic installation of all updates and drivers for your gear, showing the information about beneficial offers on the Internet, the enhancement of Internet browsing. Any such function is already integrated into the browsers, or present in the OS tools list, which means - such tools are just useless, and the web-site, which propagates them is, very likely, malicious.
  • Download in the package with worthy tools. Literally every toll-free software proposes you to install something aside from the needed tool. You download the software, and in one of the windows you see the suggestion to install the super-useful file manager, antivirus, browser, the new toolbar for it, and God knows what else. You do not even need to decide anything because the all fields are already filled, and in some cases, it is very complicated to abort the unwanted installations.
  • Sometimes user downloads malicious programs voluntarily. It is also possible, because when the people read a colorful specification of the program, they decide that it is highly efficient.

The infection via viral e-mail attachment is also very efficient, but this technique is used most of the times by malware and ransomware, and not by adware. We suppose that when you're reading these words, will be totally deleted from your machine. If you choose the disposal in manual mode, you need to know how to determine that there is a virus on your workstation.

  • The system boots really slowly. The tools that launch at startup are, in most cases, the cause of tardy boot. Check the taskbar, and search for useless programs.
  • Banners are everywhere. If the amount of hype has grown up noticeably - that is, most likely, virus.
  • The reliable tools became slowly and unstable, PC reboots and turns off by itself.
  • The appearance of the bizarre programs on your computer. If the tool emerges on your machine without your permission - it's, most likely, unwanted.

If you find one of the described above symptoms on your computer - you have to perform a total scan through special software, or manually delete all the undesired and harmful software from your machine. Don't believe in everything you see on the Net, watch for the symptoms of infection on the machine, and it will always be fast and functional.
