How to protect the computer?

There is one significant thing that you should know about any adware: how not to let it enter the computer. Viruses use lots of ways, but they all can be divided on three basic groups:

  • Download from a dangerous web-page. There are web-pages, which propagate the adware and aren't even hiding it. Suchlike programs have the limited list of advantages: giving the information about best deals on the Internet, the improvement of Internet browsing, 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. If on any website you see an offer to download the software with such features - it is really dangerous, and the website itself is unreliable.
  • Download in bundles with free programs. If you often use the toll-free programs, you understand what that means. You download the program, and then you see the window with the proposal of the installation of the browser, the additional toolbar for it, special tool, brilliant media player, and God knows what else. The installation is already verified, and once you press "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll get few tools that you do not need, except the useful one.
  • The direct download by user. It is highly possible, because when some users read a tempting specification of the tool, they believe that it is highly effective.

The e-mails are also often used, to spread viruses but it is rarely used by advertising programs. If you see these words, we suppose, that adware is gone for good. The good AV-programs understand to detect malware, but if you prefer the hand removal - you must know all signs of virus.

  • Windows boots really slowly. The processes that run at startup are, in most cases, the reason of long boot. On the taskbar you can see all currently working tools, and decide the ones that are useful and which aren't.
  • Pop-ups are everywhere. If the numbers of hype has grown up noticeably - this is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • The dependable software became unstable and slow, PC reboots and turns off by itself.
  • The emergence of the unknown tools in your system. If the tool emerges in the system without your permission - it is, most likely, undesired.

If you find one of the described above symptoms on your computer - you should perform a total scan with help of anti-virus, or manually delete all the unwanted and dangerous programs from your system. Be watchful on the Web, follow the status of your machine, and it will always be fast and efficient.
