How to protect the computer?

To prevent suchlike problems in the future, you need to understand closely in which way got onto the machine. This occurs via three basic manners:

  • Infection through a dangerous site. There are web-sites, which spread the unwanted programs without any precautions. The functions of such programs are ordinary, they are: the implementation of definite tasks in Twitter, self installation of every update or driver for your devices, providing the latest unpaid content such as games, music and movies, the improvement of Internet browsing, giving the information about best deals on the Internet. If on any web-site you receive an offer to install the software with such features - it is absolutely harmful, and the web-site itself is suspicious.
  • Download in the package with helpful software. If you often use the toll-free tools, you are familiar with this. You download the program, and during the installation there is a window with the proposal to install the anti-viral software, brilliant media player, browser, the new add-on for it, and, maybe, some different weird, but highly "effective" tools. The installation is already verified, and once you click "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll earn 2-3 useless programs, instead of one that you would like to have.
  • Sometimes user installs adware by his own will. Carefully written specification of the program and its magnificent (and nonexistent) features misleads the user, and he downloads adware.

The infection via e-mail is also extremely popular, but this way is used mostly by malware and ransomware, and not by adware. We suppose that if you're reading this part of the guide, will be fully removed from the machine. The well anti-viruses know how to detect a virus, but if you prefer the disposal in manual mode - you should know all red flags of infection.

  • OS boots very slowly. The programs that run at startup are, in most cases, the reason of tardy boot. At the taskbar you will see all currently working programs, and choose which are useful and which aren't.
  • Ads are everywhere. If the quantity of advertisement has grown up notably - this is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • The reputable programs functions unstable and slow, machine reboots and turns off by itself.
  • The emergence of the bizarre software on your machine. If the software appears on your machine without your consent - it is, most likely, dangerous.

If you find one of these red flags on your computer - you need to perform a total scan through anti-viral software, or manually delete all the useless and harmful tools from your machine. Be watchful on the Internet, look for the symptoms of malware on your computer, and it will be ready for anything.
